With over 27 years experience as a Marriage, Family and Individual Gestalt Psychotherapist, I work to address the root causes of emotional, spiritual and behavioral challenges with supportive, somatic, and empowering methods.
If you are feeling anxious, scared, isolated or depressed, during this unprecedented time, I am here to help. If you feel stir-crazy being at home, feel overwhelmed with work stress or home schooling, feel scared about getting sick or are dealing with rising tensions among family members, I can give you the skills to manage and navigate these and other issues that are getting activated. I help clients create a deeper sense of safety, intimacy and harmony within themselves and their relationships as they traverse these times. This is a scary time but it doesn't have to consume or distract you or your loved ones from living FULLY.

I have 32 years experience as both a Psychologist and Marriage and Family Therapist in helping individuals, couples and families find more effective solutions in both short-term and longstanding difficulties.
I can best help you when you have felt challenged by life, relationships and stressors that many people face in their life. Have you found that despite various efforts to find solutions you're left dissatisfied? This happens because to achieve significant and lasting changes one must access the self-esteem that resides deep within us. Traditional methods of change fail to impact at this level. My longstanding experience and success using EMDR enables us to significantly improve your self-esteem while making life's challenges more manageable and resolutions achievable.
