"My roots as a therapist and healer have seeded over the past thirty years, bringing substance and depth to my one-on-one sessions with couples and individuals. During this time, I have maintained a private practice, which has always consisted of process-oriented consciousness work--a means by which to enter safely and deeply into the inner landscape of the psyche for positive and real world change. My results-oriented approach to psychology is derived from the commitment to a conscious process and the intrapsychic relationship one can access when choosing to turn toward--and look at--oneself."

My work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families is based off a strong clinical foundation and woven together with compassion, respect and caring. By resolving some of our issues we can become balanced and find improved overall health (mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, emotionally)."

"Working in an alliance between mind and body brings powerful resources to the table, freeing vital energy and core beliefs that have locked us into living partial lives. Using the physical symptoms that plague us as a doorway, we track buried survival patterns from our stressful past. Feelings and sensations lead the client, posture and pattern guide the therapist, to bring the unconscious blockage to light. Now we complete the step we weren't able to then. New responses become wired in, so that our hoped-for future becomes our new normal. A great way to heal trauma, attachment issues, autoimmune conditions and anxiety."

"Practicing as a Certified Jungian Analyst for the last twenty years, I have seen again and again, that an in-depth exploration of painful symptoms opens up a deeper understanding of their meaning to the individual and leads to healing that involves personal growth and spiritual development. A depth approach to the painful wounds, fears, and depressions that plague us can help us understand that these afflictions are not necessarily our "fault" or "pathological," but work to deepen our experience as human beings and can help us to relate to others in a meaningful and soulful way."
