I thoroughly enjoy working with "emerging adults." Those who may be struggling to find their sense of identity and adapting to the greater demands and responsibilities of adulthood. Have you recently had a baby, and you're struggling with the transition to motherhood? With advanced training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADS), I have a passion for working with women who are struggling to connect to their baby or finding it hard to feel like themselves again. I also enjoy working with couples and aim to help couples identify repetitive patterns of conflict and access emotions underlying the conflict.

One focus of my practice is Reproductive Health: women/couples seeking a pregnancy, mourning a miscarriage, struggling with postpartum difficulties or feeling concerned about either traditionally formed, adoptive or ART families.
Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.

I believe my purpose is to connect with women, men, and young people in such a way that the trauma they have experienced no longer has a hold on them physically, emotionally, or spiritually. I support my clients through the process of defining who they are and who they want to become in healthy relationships with themselves and others. I am a partner with my clients as they embrace opportunities to be transformed. I help illuminate the intersection among race, class, gender, and trauma, and how this intersection shapes who we all are as evolving human beings.

I have extensive experience working with trauma survivors, including women who have been sexually assaulted.
I am a psychodynamic psychologist. As such, I believe that our early experiences shape our later expectations of ourselves and our relationships. I assist patients in examining patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may have begun early in life and continue to generate unhappiness with the goal of helping to relieve the depression and anxiety. As patients gain self-awareness and come to recognize and handle their feelings more adeptly, they often develop a more cohesive identity. While working to mitigate them, I am mindful of understanding what underlies the patient's vulnerability to developing these particular symptoms.

My primary focus is on helping couples and individuals with sexual issues. In working with couples, I find dissatisfaction with partnered sex is often linked to deeper relationship difficulties and the two can be intertwined. In other instances, the therapeutic focus is primarily on enhancing technique and increasing desire rather than improving the relationship. I also work individually with women to eliminate barriers to sexual wellness and increase acceptance. I enjoy working with gay, lesbian, and heterosexual clients and have respect for sexual fluidity and variance in erotic interest.

Often when people come to see me, they have been experiencing the pain and challenges of life much more than the pleasure, and they desire to feel better and enjoy life more fully. I have worked with men and women who experience this pain in many forms, including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, grief, or the aftermath of trauma. In addition, I am very interested in working with people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds. I have worked extensively with immigrants, first generation citizens, international students and professionals, and people who identify as multicultural or a person of color.

I specialize in treating complicated grief, traumatic bereavement, and grief stemming from attachment trauma, relationship loss, and family estrangement. Loss is often a highly distressing experience and there is not a duration of time that grieving should take; however, some mourners feel stuck in their grief or desire support.
