You can heal from TRAUMA. If you are living with traumatic events from your past, ranging from sexual abuse, incest, rape, humiliation, violence, and attachment wounds, therapy could be a safe space to address these injuries. Through a collaborative approach and taking into account the mind & body, I join my clients on a journey of exploration, growth, and healing. I can assist you in reconnecting with yourself and your body, feel grounded, and helping you manage your life more smoothly.

I love "pushy parents," who feel as though they live in IEP meetings, and on the phone with healthcare providers. I love parents who push for their children, because who else will? Similarly, I love working with young people who have "behavioral problems," "worry too much," have "big emotions," or struggle socially. My clients are typically too smart, too creative and under-appreciated. Parents who come to my office often wonder: a) "will this help?" b) "will you understand my child?" and "c) if you understand my kid, will you then judge me?" My answers are a) "yes. It can even be fun" b) "that's my main goal" c) "not a chance."

There's that feeling creeping in again...the shame, the anxiety, the self-doubt. Everyone else seems to be moving forward and you can't help but always feel - stuck. Even when you're smiling it feels like part of you isn't really there. It's like the sadness lingers, holding you captive and weighing you down at work, at home, and in the relationships most important to you. But you are NOT alone. Your anxiety and fears don't define you. These feelings don't have to be permanent. You have already taken a huge first step in considering getting support - so let's take the next step together.

Addressing difficulties in relationships, transitions, change and trauma as well as depression, anxiety, stress and chronic/acute illness are my areas of expertise. Change is difficult and transitions can be challenging. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming or out of control, and asking for help can be really difficult, even scary. It's common to feel overwhelmed, confused, or lost in an emotional place that feels endless with no escape. I am here to provide a safe space where we can work together to help you find a way out and build a path forward toward healing, balance, happiness and meaning.

Everyone is born without shame. We arrive naturally curious & creative with a clear & healthy sense of self. Then disturbing things happen that change us. Memories & feelings get frozen in our brains and change us. This can happen from devastating events, like accidents, molestation, loss, and violence & also from hurtful patterns in families or school that erode one's sense of worth, like bullying, humiliation or rejection. Adverse life events & trauma can change our self-esteem, impact relationships & create unhealthy coping behaviors. EMDR is an evidence-based, proven treatment that can help make lasting change.

My goal is to help you work through disempowering feelings (such as worry, low self-esteem, lack of motivation, etc.) in order to feel more alive and engaged in your future. To do this, we will look at your current circumstances and relationships to see how self-defeating patterns got started and may be keeping you from living your life to the fullest. I practice active, empathetic listening and non-judgmental regard so that a similar self-loving sensibility can grow in you, helping you confront the challenges you face and allow for more enjoyment and meaning in your life.

*******PLEASE NOTE MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL. I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative, co-creative process between client and therapist. It is important for the client to feel a connection with his/her therapist and to sense that the therapist has the client's best interests and well-being at heart. I believe that through the process of expanding upon one's inherent strengths and developing insight and awareness, one is able to move into a more empowered state leading to a more enjoyable and gratifying life, a life in which one is able to fully participate.

With extensive training and more than twenty five years of clinical experience, I believe I am competent in working with variety of issues ranging from depression, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, to other difficulties in relationships and self-esteem. As I have a psychoanalytic/dynamic and humanistic framework, I do not view symptoms as pathologies to be simply gotten rid of, but as signs of underlying, problematic patterns in (often unconscious) organization of experiences. My ideal client is someone who is interested in investigation of such patterns.
