" I specialize in working with women during the peri-natal/postpartum phases, whether transitioning into the new role of parent, or coping with losses like miscarriage and infertility.
It is easy today to get swept into a world of work pressure and expectations, time scarcity, deadlines, disconnectedness from important relationships, or solely taking care of others. Sometimes it is the most valuable thing that you can do to slow down and have some help finding your internal compass. The therapy relationship is a creative, collaborative and personal one, through which we can (re)discover who you are, begin to shift relational patterns, and process and transform the impacts of trauma and loss. With children, this process unfolds in therapy through the use of play.

Whether your concerns are long-standing patterns or new adjustments, through collaborative exploration within a therapeutic relationship, new ways of relating and coping can develop.

I have particular interest in working with and supporting women through puberty, early adulthood, reproductive years (including preconception planning, childlessness by choice, infertility, assisted reproduction, termination, and loss) and menopause.
Life moves so quickly these days, it's hard to take the time to really think about who we are and how we are living. Often, it takes years of patterns that are hurtful or self-destructive to wonder why we aren't feeling happy or fulfilled. Psychotherapy can provide the time and space to really understand and experience ourselves in a new way. I will listen with curiosity and warmth and will collaborate with you to help effect positive change in your life and relationships.

After thirty years of working as a therapist, I feel I've met and worked with all kinds of patients and helped many of them to change- feel differently about themselves, their relationships and their work. I see individuals, couples and women with new babies.

I work with many adult children of alcoholics, women aspiring to live fuller and balanced lives, partners healing from infidelity, clients struggling with social anxiety, and spouses whose partner is uninterested in couples therapy.
Quality psychotherapy can be life-altering, especially when one is motivated and open to the process necessary for change. I enjoy working with individuals who are looking to develop a more grounded sense of self; seeking meaning and direction in work and/or in personal relationships. Adults of all ages come to my practice to improve and enrich their relationships with partners, children, family members, friends and colleagues. Couples look to deepen their connection, learn new communication skills, and resolve and heal from repetitive conflicts so they can cultivate a resilient and joyful partnership with one another.

Transitions, loss, trauma, persistent anxiety or depression, or a feeling that things will never change are just a few examples of the ways in which people can feel less hopeful about their lives. Psychotherapy is a tool that can alleviate the stressors of everyday life, improve one's sense of well being and connection with others and enhance one's self understanding. Over time it can also lead to a greater sense of competency and satisfaction in the world.

My clients want fulfilling and connected relationships, ones in which their needs are responded to with compassion and care. When disconnection or conflict threatens a relationship, we naturally fight, freeze, or withdraw in an attempt to protect ourselves. Despite our best intentions, we find ourselves more disconnected, hurt, and confused. I understand this cycle.
