Living a successful creative life is possible. Are you an artist, writer, musician, academic, or entrepreneur struggling to realize the life you desire? Are you self-critical? Have you noticed problematic patterns in relationships? Are you anxious, depressed, overworked, overwhelmed, and beginning to wonder if you'll ever feel better? Are there symptoms you suspect are related to unresolved trauma, and you're ready for release? As a holistic psychodynamic and somatic therapist, I welcome you. My experience is that our needs will best be met by a skilled and imaginative therapist who attends to mind and body, psyche and soma.
My understanding of the creative mind comes from 20 years of experience as a fine art and entertainment professional and multidisciplinary doctoral-level training in integrative psychotherapy. I offer a compassionate and interactive approach, including talk therapy, dreamwork, somatic experiencing, and trauma treatment via certified EMDR and TRM.
The foundation of creative living is a process of coming into relationship with yourself, your work, and others. By committing to therapy, you are making an investment in yourself. If now is the time to begin, reach out today. I'll look forward to warmly welcoming you, with an appreciation for your unique gifts.

My approach integrates psychodynamic, somatic, and evidence-based trauma treatment modalities. I have gone beyond basic training to attain master-level skills in EMDR. The people I treat have reported greater calm and insight into the origins of problems, learned to explore and shift symptoms of mind and body, and have resolved longstanding issues in relationships with work, self, and others.
