We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

I am a seasoned therapist with a solid background of training in counseling psychology and I keep a very enthusiastic learning edge on perspectives and developments in psychotherapy. I can always find a way to generate an earnest and stimulative approach to working with clients in therapy. I believe that persons seeking therapy hope to find someone who has a mature range of life experience, sophisticated knowledge of the therapeutic process, a tested repertoire of counseling skills and the ability to provide the anticipatory guidance that fosters self-determination and meaningful life changes. I am confident I have these attributes.

I treat a wide variety of clients in my practice. I love working with adults struggling with anxiety, depression, and grief and loss issues particularly with mother loss issues. Trauma is also an area of specialty. For clients presenting with trauma, or traumatic aspects to other experiences such as grief and loss I have found the use of EMDR and Trauma Narrative work to be very helpful to my clients. In regard to working with children and adolescents, I believe firmly in working as a team with parents and school staff for the most effective outcomes for children and adolescents.

My practice is about creating space... a relational space to be, to reflect, to see, to heal, and imagine anew. Life can often feel overwhelming or bring feelings of hopelessness, but our inner resources are often more than we are able to imagine in the moment of our distress. New strength and connection can be found in parts of yourself that have been cut off or neglected for various reasons. Often we need the presence of someone, like a therapist, who has the potential to reflect back who we are being and what we might be neglecting, in order to see ourselves more clearly and engage life and relationships more fully.

I work with kids and families on issues of attachment after adoption, behavioral problems, emotional regulation, social skills, identity and separation. With kids I make use of a variety of play and art therapy techniques. Infants and very young children are seen in conjunction with their caregivers, in dyadic formation. With adults we work to recognize old patterns, gain awareness about internal conflicts, tolerate and overcome the threat of change, and awaken to new and more satisfying possibilities for thinking, relating and living. EMDR may used to process trauma. Somatic techniques may be used as well.

Psychotherapy involves entering into the stuck places of your life and listening for how you struggle to live freely and authentically. It involves discovering, caring for, and reshaping the parts of your mind that are related to the problems you experience. This may involve learning to recognize unhelpful responses to pain that have themselves evolved into addictive or compulsive behaviors, addressing problematic relational patterns or making room to feel the deep hurts of loss or trauma and learning how to live well with the wounds that have shaped you.

You hope to ease your distress and experience healing, and ultimately, to enjoy satisfying, fulfilling relationships with others and with yourself. You seek the magic that comes from looking within and cultivating a relationship with your own rich inner world- a brave and vulnerable first step to finding wholeness, relief, and self-awareness. Depth psychotherapy is the process of turning inward and examining unconscious aspects of the self that have influenced you outside of your awareness, a practice that not only alleviates symptoms and suffering, but transforms unhealthy coping behaviors and problematic relationship patterns.

My theoretical orientation integrates cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, narrative, existential, and mindfulness approaches. I work from a holistic perspective that considers biological, psychological, socio-cultural, and spiritual factors in understanding human behavior and experience.

I consider this work in a few categories: Therapy is an honest, cathartic process of voicing hopes and fears. Therapy is telling the truth. We explore what is good, we confess what is broken. Therapy is like learning to love- it is coming into relationship with estranged parts of yourself, with others, with your experiences of faith. Therapy is sometimes difficult to describe in broad statements like these because it is such a personal and unique experience. It is something that we can create together.
