Welcome! I specialize in helping individuals with anxiety-related problems (including panic, specific fears and general anxiety), those who've suffered traumatic losses or are experiencing life transitions (such as divorce, job loss, military discharge, illness or retirement).

Many people prefer to contact me at first by email and we may email several times before you decide to schedule an appointment. That's fine.

I most often work with patients experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma symptoms, domestic violence, grief, illness, substance abuse, adjustment difficulties, and relational difficulties.
Therapy is about what works for you. I provide a compassionate, non-judgmental, and confidential space to explore and shift away from maladaptive thoughts and patterns. I work relationally with individuals to foster self satisfaction, further self understanding and appreciation, and restore the self. A comfortable patient and therapist relationship is key to successful and meaningful therapy. I view the client as the expert on his or her own experience. I aim to create a safe space in order to expand awareness of that experience, integrate aspects that may have been excluded from awareness, and integrate new experience and meanings.

Don’t give up. You are not alone. When we are experiencing emotional pain, healing occurs when an empathic and compassionate therapist helps you to explore and understand what your psyche needs. Pain is inevitable at times in our lives, although suffering does not have to be. Emotional discomfort is the signal from your psyche that change is necessary and crises and challenges can be opportunities for our psyche to heal and grow. If you have experienced a loss, are trying to manage conflicts with a partner, friend or colleague, or you are seeking to improve your relationship with yourself, therapy can be helpful.

My approach is body-centered with a focus on the nervous system, in utero and birth experience, symptoms that show up in relationship patterns, chronic pain, negative self beliefs, confusing and unexplainable behavior or thought.
I am a fellow traveler on the path of healing. My own healing process informs my work as therapist as much as my different trainings have taught me. We cannot escape our past, but can use its teachings to open up our present and future. There is a wise person and healer within the limits our trauma has imposed upon us. Finding that inner resource is my vision for anyone choosing to work with me.
