As difficult as it may be to face one's problems I believe it is more painful when we avoid facing them. I offer a safe and accepting environment in which I engage you to work with me and together we identify the source(s) of your difficulties and explore options that will enable you to move beyond them. My approach is positive with a focus on your strengths. I have the utmost respect for my clients and their family situations and honesty is a hallmark of my work.

My journey as a Clinical Social Worker has encompassed 30+ years of practice. I have had the privilege to work with children and families as well as with adults in a variety of different settings. I have a strong background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and expertise working with trauma survivors and with those who have experienced vicarious traumatization. My approach can best be described as integrative and holistic. This means that I rely upon various psycho-therapeutic methods and evidence-based models that are combined to create a personalized approach to our work together.

I have worked in the field for 25 years. I also offer early morning sessions for people who want to meet before they go to work. Working in private practice and in schools has provided me with the unique experience and understanding of families, students and the school system. Over the years, I have expanded my expertise to working with people of all ages dealing with the everyday challenges of life, psychiatric issues and wanting to be a more well rounded person. Guiding and motivating people toward understanding what "feeling better" can be and working with them how to get there is a journey we take together.

Sometimes in life we can feel lost, misguided, anxious, stuck or even desperate. We find ourselves repeating patterns, doing the same things over and over again, coming up short of opportunities and solutions in regard to our problems. Often times, this is due to limited belief systems instilled upon us, or through the experience of fears, injustice and a need to simply catch our breath. Are you ready to focus on growth, health, fulfillment and recognizing your higher purpose and true potential? Let's release these perceived limitations, ignite passion, heal old wounds, fulfill the option of being true to self and make that change.

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.

CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING REFERRALS- Life is filled with moments of great joy, profound sorrow, and everything in between; at times navigating the ups and downs can be challenging. Often people get stuck in familiar patterns that aren't productive. One of the benefits of therapy is having an objective, non-judgmental ally to assist you through the change process. Therapy is interactive and collaborative. As a therapist, my goal is to help my clients recognize and utilize the strengths they already possess to create the change they seek in their lives. "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."
