I am a white, able-bodied, cisgender woman, and I strive to acknowledge and recognize the intersections of my privilege and how they impact my work as a therapist and our work together in the room. I provide psychotherapy for individuals impacted by trauma, in whatever capacity that might look like. I believe that trauma leaves with us a story, and that story is worth being told, and being heard.

I work with women who are struggling with overwhelming anxiety.
Right now, you may be feeling not good enough, stuck in a toxic relationship, uncomfortable asking for help, scared of conflict, intimidated, taken advantage of. Anxiety feels SO crippling. You are worried, scared, and life out there seems overwhelming. You want to feel empowered, respected, and loved. You can achieve, tough it out, and make other people happy, but aren’t really happy yourself. You seem FINE on the outside, but anxiety lingers underneath. You want enjoyment, connection, and to be free.

I have taught expressive arts therapy (YWCA Counseling Center), grief counseling (JFK University), Pastoral Care (Holmes Institute), lead support groups for adult children of aging parents, for women diagnosed with cancers and long-term illnesses, for teens questioning everything.
This defines my view of being a therapist: "One of the greatest privileges of the human being is to become a midwife to the birth of the soul of another person. This is what therapy is about: helping people retrieve what has been lost to them, wakening and bringing home their fundamental wholesomeness” (from Plato's Symposium). John O’Donohue continues: “Therapists are like poets: they draw on the power of words in the profoundly creative work of bringing people fully alive to themselves, awakening in them the human capacity for divine imagination that ‘dreams our completion’.”

I have extensive experience leading support groups for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer.
My clients seek my services when personal problems or relationship failures and disappointments drain the joy, fun and creativity from otherwise rewarding lives and careers. No one wants to remain stuck or feel sad, depressed or anxious for long. By using a warm, interactive and pragmatic approach, I actively engage with clients to help them gain perspective and insight into patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that no longer work. With this understanding, clients move forward and make successful life changes. I believe that relief from emotional pain comes from self-awareness gained in a safe, compassionate, and supportive environment.

While I have had a general practice for over 25 years, eating disorders are of special interest to me, particularly the "binge-purge" cycle that plagues so many women obsessed with being thin.
Do you feel controlled by food, rather than in control of it ? Are you obsessed with eating, dieting or bingeing? Does your scale determine your mood? Is your life strongly impacted by your weight? Life doesn't have to be a weight struggle. Learn the difference between head and body hunger. Decipher what your obsessive behavior is really saying. Acquire physical, mental and emotional balance. Whether it is eating, drinking, anger, spending, controlling, an addiction is a mal-adaptive attempt at managing feelings and escaping discomfort.

I specialize in stepfamilies (stepcouples and stepmoms); as a veteran stepmom, I offer relatable insight and empathy to women experiencing the challenges of this role.
Daily life brings plenty of stresses, but most of us manage to function pretty well in spite of them. Sometimes, however, the stresses become more than we can handle, making us feel nervous, sad or angry. We might argue more with loved ones, have trouble sleeping or difficulty concentrating. Physical problems might show up like headaches or stomach complaints. If all this weren't enough, we might self-medicate by doing things like over-eating, excessive drinking or shopping. While these activities are actually attempts to self-comfort, a more productive way to gain relief when life gets out of control is to seek therapy.
