FOR DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, RELATIONSHIPS, ADDICTION, TRAUMA: I blend psychology and spirituality to treat uncomfortable emotions, feelings of isolation, the monkey mind of the ego, as well as heavy, stuck energy that needs releasing. Psychodynamic therapy and guided meditation can help shift the way you think and feel. As Einstein put it: "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it." Using an integrative approach we will explore ways to shift your thoughts and your emotions so that you can feel better and find new perspectives on your problems.
In session you can take time to let your soul catch up with you--share what's on your mind, organize your thoughts, and listen to yourself. This is a gift you give yourself, stepping out of the demanding pace of our culture to turn inward. We will then combine insight-oriented therapy with energetic and expressive methods to access your inner therapist.
I treat individuals, couples, and adolescents. Both brief therapy and ongoing sessions are available, weekly or biweekly. I have day, evening, and weekend hours. My approach is individualized; we can set up an initial consult to discuss your needs. Please ask about the reduced fee for our first session. Our sessions are confidential and diversity is honored.
