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.
My couple practice has been strongly influenced by the theory and practice of my husband, Dan Wile, founder of Collaborative Couple Therapy. Dan died on March 18, 2020 after a long struggle with heart failure. I will be resuming my practice, by Zoom and by phone, beginning the week of April 13.
