Nurturing, strength-based and compassionate, I am an active and directive participant in my clients' work. We together will identify what brings you to treatment, be it depression, anxiety, PTSD, a history of abuse, or simply discomfort. We will articulate where in your life you are struggling- interpersonally, at work, in school, with your family or in your marriage, and develop goals to relieve that distress. It can be challenging to choose to participate in therapy, and I work to create a safe, honest and productive environment so we can engage and address the issues that are challenging you.

Every couple is different, every couple is complicated, and every couple has trouble talking about one or more key issues. In your first session I will quickly assess what isn't working in your relationship and build a plan to eliminate the problem. I will help facilitate effective communication, make sure the sessions are emotionally safe, and teach practical methods for getting your thoughts and feelings across. My job is not to figure out who is right and who is wrong, my job is to help. ​I tend to work with couples each week for 8-12 weeks.

Do you feel like you are struggling to manage the pace of life around you? Do you feel overwhelmed, can’t make decisions and often shut down? You’ve been described by others as ‘too sensitive’ and you worry that they are right - internally there is a battle with self-confidence and perfectionism. These feelings cause you to miss opportunities at work or school and wreak havoc in your relationships. You are trying to keep up despite an inner storm that leads to criticism and shame. You might have similar concerns for your child but you are unsure how to support them.

Psychotherapy is a sacred trust. The feelings and issues that bring you to therapy can be seen as messages from deep inside, urging you to grow, to heal, and to achieve your true potential. How you form a relationship with your therapist and with yourself inaugurates a process that can change your life. Having been a therapist for over 40 years, I deeply value honesty, authenticity, and the power of embodied presence. Together, we blend compassion and insight, challenge and support, and always respect your own inner wisdom as a guiding light for the healing of body, mind, heart and spirit.

The ideal setting for therapy is a caring environment that allows genuine sharing and exploration along with the active participation of the therapist. This way, the patient has the opportunity to explore current life difficulties and examine them in a new perspective. Sometimes it is helpful to look back at early life relationships and see how they influence present day feelings, thoughts, and actions. With couples I am able to enhance communication skills by working to resolve the push-pull that creates distance and conflict, calmly helping my patients face challenges with compassion and a nurturing sense of humor.

Photo of Sex Addiction & Parenting: Betrayal In Families,
Families are greatly impacted by betrayal, infidelity and sex addiction. As parents struggle to orient themselves to a new reality in the face of betrayal, it can be overwhelming and painful for a parent to recognize the immediate and future impact on their children. Well meaning parents can unintentionally make serious mistakes in managing the family during this painful and confusing time. You may have questions at this time such as “How is the tension in the household affecting our child?" and “Is our child internalizing emotional pain that we can't see?”
