I have practiced psychotherapy for thirty years. As clients share their life struggles, I offer support, respect, and practical information on coping strategies. Together, we explore such issues as patterns of attachment and relating, internal self talk, cognitive structures, unresolved traumas and one's personal life narrative. I individualize my approach and use a variety of modalities to help clients develop strengths and achieve their life goals. When working with couples, I facilitate development of healthy communication techniques, conflict resolution skills, and awareness of defenses. I promote attunement to emotional needs so couples can experience intimacy and growth.

As a play therapist, I offer children an opportunity to gain mastery of their dilemmas through the manipulation of art materials, toys and sand tray figurines. Children emerge feeling empowered. I am able to evaluate a child's perspective from their play theme. Concurrently, I conference with parents and offer guidance.

I offer adolescents a safe place to voice their stuggles and concerns. Often, their issues are about identity, self-esteem, individuation, sexual identity, relationships, divorce, belonging and peer pressure. I utilize art therapy, EMDR, hypnosis, gestalt therapy, sand tray, transactional analysis, imago, object relations and systematic training in effective parenting techniques
