I am committed to helping individuals and couples gain insight and make behavioral changes to enhance their lives. My focus is on relationships with friends, family, romantic partners and/or the workplace as I believe engagement in these areas is an important aspect of living a satisfying and purposeful life. I also work with those struggling with addictions, compulsions, self-destructive behavior (especially eating disorders), and balancing the competing demands of life. My professional strengths are reflected in a nonjudgmental stance and an ability to help people examine themselves and make the changes necessary to live in a more fulfilling life.

As we maneuver through life towards our best selves, experiencing challenges, pain, & negative emotions are inevitable. I believe that we should not allow obstacles and feelings to stop our growth & hinder our journeys. Are you currently going through transition in your life & having difficulty adjusting? Are you struggling to get through your day because you are sad, doubtful, & overwhelmed? Are you confused, frustrated, & tired of trying to figure out relationships & your place in the world? I understand the complexities of life can be difficult to manage, but you do not have to manage them alone.

It takes courage to face emotional and relationship problems. With over 20 years professional experience treating clients and consulting to businesses, I specialize in helping people find and utilize their strengths and sideline their difficulties. With children and adults, I specialize in treating complex anxiety, attachment, and learning issues and developing talent and leadership. Once clients are freed from the crippling impact of excessive anxiety, emotional dysregulation, or self defeating behavior patterns, drawing upon Positive Psychology and Mindfulness techniques helps us identify and capitalize on personal strengths. Clients are able to heal - thrive - grow - bloom into excellence.

I enjoy working with children (9+), teens and adults. I see couples and families helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, parenting difficulties, chronic stress, life transitions or the effects of trauma? Would you like psychotherapy to be a collaborative process, where we determine a personalized approach to our work together? I typically blend insight-oriented therapy to deepen self-understanding, mindfulness practices to cultivate awareness and compassion, cognitive-behavioral interventions for symptom relief, and mind-body medicine for regulating the nervous system. With specialized training in yoga and meditation, I enjoy interweaving Western clinical psychology with Eastern yoga and mindfulness-based practices for a holistic, strengths based, mind-body approach to health and well being.

I specialize in working with individuals who have been touched by adoption. Every adopted person has his/her own unique feelings about being adopted. For some, these may be "back burner" yet for others they may be more complex. I counsel adoptees - at various life stages - as they explore how adoption may affect their identity, feelings surrounding grief and loss, intimacy issues and relationships with family and friends. I have also worked with many adoptees (and birth parents) as they navigate the complexities of the search and reunion process and reconnection.

At the root of transition is “transit.” This passage from one place to another can feel Disorienting & Unsettling, particularly when a career or job change is involved. Your work identity is a vital part of your being and center of gravity. An important first step is considering what you really WANT to do at work and equally important - what you DONT.

Bottom line, you need to KNOW and feel at ease Telling Your Story, showcasing your brand on your resume, crafting compelling cover letters, & that Interview! I'm here to help.

Couples work is challenging and emotionally provocative. Feelings of frustration, pain, anger and discouragement alternating with relief, hopefulness, and excitement are common among couples who are trying to resolve their marital discord. Although each couple is unique the following principles hold true in treatment of the majority of partners. 1) A good marriage requires both spouses to psychologically separate from their family of origin and shift their primary love, loyalty to each other. An individual cannot fully participate in an interdepended relationship without being first an independent and autonomous person.

Looking back on 30 years in practice, I see a composite client losing inhibitions and conflicts interfering with having a satisfying work and personal life. Central issues are often connected to wanting to feel more whole and happy and to separate from while staying connected to family. Finding, keeping, or leaving a relationship or job are usually part of the work. Together, we explore and unravel emotional knots. New behaviors and skills are developed and used and by providing a warm, safe environment, the client changes, grows and thrives. Note: I am not taking new appointments for ongoing therapy. Consults are available for stepmothers/stepcouples.
