I specialize in, but am not limited to, mid-life issues for men and women including sexuality, empty nest, health, and lifestyle.
We come to therapy to change our lives which can only be done by changing ourselves. I believe the most effective changes occur when we can experience and examine our behavior in relation to others. In individual therapy you and I will not only identify and try to understnad how your life experiences have shaped your behavior, but how you and I experience that behavior in our relationship. When I work with couples, I focus on your dynamics of intimacy, power imbalances, money, sexuality, and the impact of family and friends on your couple.

Since 1991 I have been helping clients resolve the conflicts that have been preventing them from achieving their potential. I help women navigate the ups and downs of infertility treatments and identify the best ways to achieve their dreams of motherhood. Using my background in Employee Assistance work, I help clients gain perspective on workplace conflicts, resolve performance issues, and clarify professional goals. I help clients looking for love to identify their barriers to intimacy, examine expectations, and give relationships a chance at success. I have a special interest in holistic treatments.

My specialty is helping queer women cope with codependency, life transitions and relationship issues.
Therapeutic Compatability Check: Do you often feel insecure, lonely, and anxious in your relationships? Do you ever feel controlled and completely consumed by your emotions? Do you constantly wonder if your relationships will always be this HARD? Do you have a hard time trusting others and fear they might abandon you? Do you often find yourself saying YES to others when you really wish you could say NO? Do you struggle to stick with your boundaries when you get push back from other people? Do you ever tell yourself you can’t be okay until everyone you love is okay?

I have extensive experience working with trauma survivors, including women who have been sexually assaulted.
I am a psychodynamic psychologist. As such, I believe that our early experiences shape our later expectations of ourselves and our relationships. I assist patients in examining patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may have begun early in life and continue to generate unhappiness with the goal of helping to relieve the depression and anxiety. As patients gain self-awareness and come to recognize and handle their feelings more adeptly, they often develop a more cohesive identity. While working to mitigate them, I am mindful of understanding what underlies the patient's vulnerability to developing these particular symptoms.

One focus of my practice is Reproductive Health: women /couples seeking a pregnancy, mourning a miscarriage, struggling with postpartum difficulties or feeling concerned about either traditionally formed, adoptive or ART families.
Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.
