About

The needs to feel safe, heard, understood and cared for are universal. Your pain and struggles are not your fault. You do have the power to grow, change, and heal, although you might not know how. This is our work together. Using all the tools I have to offer, with your input and feedback, we change depression or anxiety into joy and peace; self-harm into self-care; failure and stuck-ness into satisfaction and achievements; abandonment and toxic relationships into independence, love, and freedom. Daytime (morning to early afternoon) appointments available.
I specialize in trauma, including complex trauma related to childhood and relationship abuse. I use EMDR and Schema Therapy to heal from trauma and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. I incorporate mindfulness, body-centered healing, and relaxation. I use psychoanalysis to listen deeply. You lead; I follow with my tools and open heart.
I am committed to social justice in my practice. I am extremely fortunate to have worked with a great diversity of clients in terms of race, ethnicity, and gender/sexual orientation. The 'isms' affect us deeply, and oppression is real.
