Trained in Germany and in the United States I have been able to learn from both academic and cultural traditions. Psycho-dynamic, Gestalt, Solution-focused and other approaches in Psychology led me to understand our emotional life as a strong and resilient force. This force is leading us - sometimes unnoticed - to new beginnings; we resist what is destructive and we heal at the same time.

I help each partner identify and understand how familial, financial, sexual and work-related pressures impact their relationship. I promote improvement in communication skills, helping prevent separations or divorces which, upon introspection, could have been prevented.

I provide and model the skills necessary for improvement and guide the couple toward their particular relationship solutions.
Welcome! I have been working in various therapeutic settings with children and teens for nearly a decade to help them overcome family, relational, school and life challenges so they can find more joy and grow as an individual. I have found that many kids and teens benefit from movement while engaging in therapy so I incorporate outdoor activities while using traditional therapy techniques. I have had extensive training and experience in outdoor recreation such as hiking, paddling, snowshoeing, and more which I now use to help my clients grow and heal in accessible locations within Middlesex County.
I was raised to believe that richness of exposures and depth of trainings make for the best professionals. Before I became a therapist myself, I earned a Ph.D. in an allied field and spent 16 years teaching, at UCLA, USC, and Antioch University West; then I went back to school for clinical training. I specialized in children and families as a base and then went further for psychoanalytic training, one program for adults, another for children and adolescents.
