I mainly work with clients who are "psychologically minded" and interested in examining long-standing personality traits that may get in the way of having fulfilling personal and professional lives. Often my clients are therapists or aspiring therapists. I am an Emeritus Professor and a "Research Psychoanalyst." That means I have a PhD in Philosophy and have also trained in counseling and acquired a PsyD in Psychoanalysis. What I offer draws from this mix of backgrounds. I most like working with individuals (and couples and groups) who want to be challenged on both an intellectual and an emotional level.

Encountering many individuals, who lacked a strong support system, led me into the field of counseling and instilled in me a heart for healing. I am trained in EMDR, specializing in trauma and recovery. Additionally, I am Prepare and Enrich certified. I have completed Levels 1-2 Training in Gottman Couples Therapy and a Gottman Education Leader. I love supporting individuals, couples, adolescents, and families struggling with anxiety, depression, relational difficulties, self-harm, low self-worth, bicultural identity, and life transitions.

I have experience working with couples and families with increasing understanding of one another, communication skills, and conflict resolution.
My practice is currently full and I am not accepting new clients at this time. Unfortunately, life has many obstacles and challenges leading to feelings of sadness, pain, confusion, and anger. Often individuals and couples feel stuck and don't know how to move forward. This time can feel very lonely and scary. My role as a therapist is to provide you with a safe, nonjudgmental environment to process thoughts and feelings, as well as guide you in developing insight and identifying skills to help you live a happier and healthier life. I am committed in helping you heal and grow.

Gottman couples therapy & EMDR trauma work are proven effective treatments.
Are you finding that you and your significant other seem to fail at communication yet succeed in conflict with each other? Do arguments not get resolved and instead it's one issue after another? Do you feel tired and lost in your relationship? Trust and commitment alone are difficult things to cultivate, let alone building insight and effective communication. Whether you're wanting help early or this is the last ditch effort, bravo for your willingness and bravery for exploring your options. Also, if your past still affects your present, do you want to continue allowing those traumas to weigh heavy in your life?

In my work with individuals, couples, and adolescents, I seek to provide a context for the most challenging feelings to finally have a voice.
Some days feel more challenging than others. Seasons of worry, sadness, insecurity, and relational distance can feel impossible to overcome. We might try to hide our emotions from the people around us for fear that they won't understand. We might experience greater conflict in relationships and isolate ourselves as a result. We deeply desire a place to feel safe, understood, and known without judgement.
