I embrace an integrative model that focuses on your needs, working with you collaboratively as we uncover your path to healing, balance, and aliveness. I am an older therapist engaged in my second career. For much of my adult life, I was a humanities professor, which I see as informing my present vocation. Having struggled with the challenge of many life transitions -- endings and beginnings, sometimes imposed, sometimes chosen -- I feel passionate about helping you with yours. You can always expect to find with me a safe space that offers compassion, warmth, and openness. My practice is LGBT friendly.

With individuals, I work with your life story to transform the present so you can embrace both self-acceptance and change. With couples, I focus on fostering intimacy, whatever the issue, helping each of you to find your voice and feel heard by your partner, whether you are a new couple or have been together for many decades.

In addition to my practice with individuals and couples, I also see couples together with my husband, Dan Wile, founder of Collaborative Couple Therapy. (See www.danwile.com). Twice a year, in the Spring and the Fall, we offer a weekend Couples Workshop for five couples in our home.
