We are truly living in troubled times, globally and personally. Many of us find ourselves fluctuating between feelings of anxiety and/or depression. At 67 years old, I’ve spent nearly half my life – 35 years – as a Marriage and Family Therapist/Psychotherapist. Adding Hypnotherapy to my practice has been a game changer, and that, along with friends, colleagues, and many clients, I’ve learned ways of managing my thinking and thereby managing my emotions. This is what I do in my private practice and I can help you to do the same.

Then we engage as appropriate, always staying focused on you and your goals. I enjoy and am trained in both short-term specific problem therapy and also in-depth psychodynamic therapy.

Life can be challenging. Whether it's loss, change, death of a loved one or uncertainty of life's direction, we all hit roadblocks and obstacles. During those times it's important to be heard. I am here to listen and to inspire hope. I believe in my clients' abilities to change. I nurture their inner strength until they can believe in themselves. Change is powerful. It can be transformational, scary and exciting. When I worked in Palliative Care with patients who were at the end stage of their lives, I was witness to the power of being present. In the quiet presence of acceptance, a deep healing can occur. PLEASE EMAIL FOR CONSULT

In life it can feel like there are many barriers we have to break through. We feel like all the pressure is on us and sometimes we do not feel supported, seen, or understood. We may doubt ourselves. We have the pressure of career, children, relationships, and it can be exhausting, not to mention overwhelming. However, we do not have to break those barriers down alone! Our goal is to help our clients understand self-love, compassion, and assist in problem solve and create a safe space to overcome the barriers in life.

Things have been tough before in your life but lately your anxiety has been pretty constant. You sometimes wonder if you’re overreacting...after all, isn't everyone struggling? But when you really pay attention, it worries you. Your chest feels tight and it’s difficult to take a full breath. You can't pinpoint exactly what is making you feel this way, which makes it worse somehow. You try talking to your friends and although they're supportive you can't help feeling like you're a burden. You think everyone is sick of hearing about your struggles and you wonder why you can't just get over it like everyone else seems to be able to do.

My 30 years as a Sex Therapist in private practice has enabled me to work with a large variety of relationships, sexual problems & intimacy issues. I can offer a safe place to discuss, explore, and create solutions for whatever difficulty you're experiencing. ​ Some Sex Therapy is short term (1-6 months) and often involves sexual education & permission to experience pleasure. Most Sex Therapy requires longer term therapy (1-2 years) because of relational dynamics, unhealthy beliefs about sexuality, anxiety, attachment issues from childhood, unresolved grief, trauma recovery, learning to identify & convey your sexual needs/wants.

My work is about healing, growth, and empowerment -- not just restoring people to good worker/consumers. We’re all more than that. Feeling and doing better is the aim, without beating yourself up. "Bad" habits and issues aren't necessarily bad, especially if they helped you survive in the past. Clearing the way means shifting your relationship with reality and the past. I know how to help with that. Gradual, positive changes come from curiosity, patience, and generosity with yourself combined with the willingness to experiment with thinking and doing things differently. Let’s get started.
