About

Unresolved childhood issues provide recurring challenges in adulthood and may show up in the form of sadness, worry, relationship problems, substance abuse or poor self-esteem. For adults abused as children, complex trauma may leave one with panic, obsessive thoughts, self-harming behaviors, or mood disorders. Sometimes individuals are given many diagnoses and medications and end up in therapies that do not resolve their underlying issue. Dissociative processes go unrecognized in many therapies, resulting in treatment that may not resolve the underlying problem, leaving one symptomatic. In my professional experience most individuals change and grow through a successful therapeutic encounter.
My theoretical orientation is integrative, including psychodynamic, systems, ego state, somatic experiencing, CBT and EMDR therapeutic modalities. 30 years of clinical experience as a mental health educator, behavioral health administrator, hospital social worker, and clinician provide a rich background from which I draw to facilitate treatment. Clinical Consultation & Supervision.
I provide culturally competent practice to a diverse patient population, drawing on significant cross cultural and LGBTQ experience. In addition to the treatment of trauma, vicarious trauma and dissociation, I specialize in working with attachment based interpersonal issues, life transitions, acute and chronic illness, and grief and loss.
