About

My job is to begin where you are and help you prepare for your next stage of change. I use an integrative approach, working from the inside out (objects relations, family systems, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, others) to support your process and movement. We all start with assumptions about life. Then life happens, and we have to begin again having been changed. Loss becomes growth as we embrace new and mature understanding of ourselves and life. I am a clinical psychologist with over 10 years experience working with complicated but interesting people who are addressing individual, relationship, life, and spiritual issues.
My service also includes a wide range of proactive life enhancements (e.g. marriage building; career development). When working with couples, I use the Gottman method. These approaches are grounded in theory and supported by research. Whatever the immediate problem, we will build a customized plan leading to new awareness and resilience.
Insight oriented approaches or Cognitive work are best for some, skill training (mood regulation, interpersonal skills building, career path work) work for others, and adult sand tray work and art therapy are best for certain others. Spirituality is an important part of therapy for many.
