"I have over 40 years of experience treating individuals, couples & groups. As a painter and psychoanalyst, I am especially able to help creative people deal with the difficulties inherent in creative work and achieve their full potential. Relationship problems can affect creative work and difficulties with work can impact relationships. I have written, presented and published papers on psychopathology, and on the creative process. My latest paper, "Victims of Envy," was published in the Psychoanalytic Review in June 2019 and my book on creativity, Chaos & Control, was published by Routledge in 2018."

"Imagine the following: you have been using the same paint palette for a while. You never clean the palette, so all the paint from the past years have dried on top of each other. One day, you feel uneasy with the top color so you decide to rip it off. It isn't until you turn it over that you see all the colors and realize they cannot be separated from each other. I focus on the clients as a whole and I believe that whatever brings you to therapy is deeply rooted in your cumulative life experiences, not in isolation. "

"Are you wanting support that is more than just talking and thinking about your challenge? If you are feeling stuck in unhealthy patterns or needing support with current stressors, there are effective wholistic strategies for finding relief and help. Anxiety, trauma, depression, irritation, anger, grieving are all experiences of the body as much as the mind. Through compassionate yet innovative body-based therapeutic interactions, you can find your way back to balance and greater wellbeing."

"In order to live a vibrant and healthy life, you must understand what is happening in the body and why. Somatic work is ideal for those who are wishing to explore topics around sexuality or gender, seeking relief from anxiety or freedom from depression. My work is thorough, progressive and satisfying. Some parts of our psyches are only accessible through the body and paying attention to the body brings deeper understanding and change."

"I understand the importance of needing to feel understood and seen. When therapy is successful, we often will experience a greater sense of spaciousness inside ourselves, freedom from our own judgments, and are reminded that confronting our pain won’t destroy us. The goal is not a short-term fix but instead a long-term shift that brings forth feelings of empowerment, resiliency, and a confidence that our brains and our lives can change. As a consequence of shifting our relationship to ourselves and to our pain, the uncomfortable symptoms often associated with anxiety, trauma, and depression begin to dissolve and loosen their grip. "

"Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or stuck? Don't let old wounds or unresolved trauma keep you from achieving your dreams. It can be exhausting and difficult to continue repeating the same patterns but know that hope is possible. My clients are often amazed at the difference therapy can make. Once you heal the past, the future is open. Imagine how good it would feel to have more confidence, connection, joy, excitement, hope and a renewed sense of purpose. Imagine what would be possible if you could remove all the internal barriers that have been blocking your abundance, ideal partnership, and creativity."

"Using a combination of Spiritual Psychology & Clinical Hypnotherapy I help adults alleviate fear, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, PTSD, and addiction. I also work with childhood issues such as bed-wetting, sleeping, monsters, stress, fear, and study habits. My work is about uncovering the old stories you have that do not work anymore for you. These stories manifest in behavior that disturbs your peace. By using narrative therapy, reframing old stories, new positive ones emerge. I have authored a book and workbook, "The Soul's Coach-7 Paths to Healing Your Relationship" and "Supa Bunnee Go To Sleep." These books are available on Amazon."

"You may not know what to expect in a therapy session. We will spend a couple meetings getting to know each other. I will ask questions about your upbringing, about how you'd like to feel now, and what has helped you survive to this point. Because, let's face it - we all grew up in somewhat neurotic families in a crazy world. Stress, anxiety, and depression run through us all and we have not been taught the tools to cope. Learning how to let go of persistent, recurring thoughts is essential, as is healing the root cause of these feelings."
