Announcement icon Accepting new clients. I offer free 20-Min Consultations. During COVID-19/Shelter-in-Place video or phone sessions only.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, therapy has a lot to offer. It can help you sort through the turmoil of feelings and disorientating life changes to make wise choices. I offer compassionate, generous listening and practical ways to soothe excessive worries, fears and anger so you can reach calm and clear-sighted perspective. If you feel numb, disconnected from yourself, and alone, therapy introduces you to the work that reconnects. Please contact me for a free 20-min consultation to find out about therapeutic support with the regulating and stabilizing experience of empathy and human connection.
With the Shelter-in-place order family dynamics are intensified and long-standing relationship problems may become unbearable. I offer empathic understanding and pragmatic solutions to change attitudes and interpersonal behavior. For many, old trauma is raised which leads to feeling unsafe or dissociated. My treatment approach to trauma is somatic and EMDR.
Grieving loss, finding meaning in times of crisis and coping with out-of-control, compulsive behaviors (e.g. alcohol, food, internet) are other aspects of my therapeutic work. PLEASE NOTE: Until it is safe again to meet in person, I offer tele-therapy by phone or videoconference only. In my experience, tele-therapy is a very good alternative.
