For over a decade I have helped people heal early life trauma & family violence, recover from addiction, manage anger/anxiety, deal with depression, live with disabilities & chronic illness, work through crises of identity & meaning, as well as navigate the grief/losses associated with major life transitions.
NOTE: Currently, my practice is limited to seeing individuals on Saturdays only. I look forward helping you find more effective ways of dealing with the conflicts and changes of everyday life. If you struggle with unhealthy coping strategies such as dependency on substances/behaviors, seem to repeat the same self-defeating patterns in relationships, have difficulty managing intense, overwhelming feelings or often feel misunderstood while trying to communicate, I can help you alter underlying patterns and develop tools that lead to enduring change.

I meet with people experiencing grief, anxiety, depression, and those who struggle with intimacy, abandonment, and trust issues.
It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

I work with clients presenting with a range of concerns including: trauma, stress, relationship conflicts, life-transitions, creative blocks, grief and loss, anxiety, and mood disorders.
Psychotherapy is an opportunity to engage in a supportive, collaborative, and dynamic partnership. Therapy is a creative process of self-exploration, self-discovery and self-understanding. With my client's goals and needs always leading the work, I draw from my expertise in psychodynamic models of "talk therapy," dance/movement therapy, EMDR Therapy, and experiential mindfulness practices, to help my clients become unstuck and embody health, growth, and change.

I work to bring you in close touch with the parts of yourself that you have been avoiding, neglecting or rejecting, in order to develop a different relationship with yourself, a relationship of understanding, kindness and forgiveness. When we are no longer frightened by those parts of ourselves that were unacceptable, we slow down, lose our reactivity, and remain present, even in difficult circumstances.

Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
