In my 20 years of clinical, academic, and advocacy experience, I have worked with clients who present with a wide range of issues. I specialize in recovery from trauma (particularly childhood abuse/neglect, sexual assault and domestic violence), successful movement through life transitions (young adulthood, career, parenthood, mid-life and loss), and repair of interpersonal relationships (including a specialty in couples therapy). I have advanced training in both trauma treatment and couples therapy, which uniquely positions me to treat couples where one or both partners have a trauma history.

People seek psychotherapy feeling unhappy or helpless to bring about change in their life or fulfill their dreams. Patients are overcome with symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or other problems, which in reality are unconscious defenses, blocking repressed feelings about something that went wrong, often in childhood, which is not yet resolved. These defenses once were adaptive, by protecting and helping them survive, but are no longer effective. I help people work through their underlying grief and face their feelings (sadness, anger, disappointment, yearning, powerlessness) surrounding trauma or loss, enabling them to engage in more free, authentic, satisfying lives.

My belief that the therapeutic relationship is the key element of successful treatment informs my practice. This working relationship, based on mutual trust and shared goals, allows for self-exploration and ultimately personal growth. In working with individuals, couples, families and/or groups I think that connecting the dots between past and present allows the client to have a better grasp on what is influencing her/his feelings and life choices leading to greater empowerment and life satisfaction.

I enjoy working with individuals who are struggling to become more authentic and present in their lives. Often, they have been marginalized for being "different" from those around them, causing them to deny parts of themselves to "fit in." Many of my clients have experienced emotional, physical, and sexual traumas that caused deep wounds and profound losses. Most find their way to my office after years spent trying to ignore, numb, or avoid the inevitable pain associated with their psychological and emotional wounds. Some also seek my help after more recent disruptions in their lives, such as divorce or immigration.

You are struggling. Maybe this is something you have grappled with for a long time, or maybe this is something that you have recently found yourself struggling with?

We will work together to identify and explore your behaviors, beliefs, feelings, and thoughts that have become problematic for you, As you gain more insight into yourself you will be better able to make deliberate choices rather than fallback on your old ways of coping.
