I help individuals and couples to feel better about themselves and find relief from challenging times in life. I've seen how much difficulty can exist at certain times in life. However, I've also learned that even the most difficult problems can be overcome, and how this is possible.

Most people solve most problems on their own or with help from friends, but that doesn’t always work. Troubles mount up. Upheavals catch you unawares. “Go to” solutions can leave you empty-handed. Even planned changes can be disorienting - job changes, retirement, new relationships, going off to school, children leaving home. Sometimes people just need help coping, changing bad habits, or thinking through options. Other times people feel hemmed in by circumstances, or find they don’t recognize themselves in the life they lead and want to deepen their sense that the life they are living reflects their own values and choices.

As a licensed creative arts therapist (drama, art, music, movement, play. creative writing) my skills are especially suitable for clients who have been through levels of trauma (domestic violence, divorce, dating abuse, PTSD, grief and loss, depression, self-harm, anxiety. etc.). In addition, I work with high-functioning kids/teens on the autism spectrum. I have found that the visual and physical work of role-playing, scene-work, improvisation, simple drawings, and video work increases their skills to recognize facial cues and feelings. Through play, these clients build self-esteem, social skills, deepen their emotional range and gain empathy.

There is an intriguing complexity at the heart of therapy. Patient and therapist meet together to consider difficulties in the patient's life. From this shared experience an interesting and challenging thing happens. Versions of the difficulties being addressed in therapy begin to emerge in the therapy relationship. The question is not whether this happens, but rather whether it is noticed and discussed. So, therapy, when it works well, comes to be not just about the patient's life, it becomes a vital piece of that life. Emotionally meaningful experience is generated and dealt with in the therapy itself.

For someone to undertake therapy is almost always fraught with anxiety. Who is this person I am trusting with my thoughts and feelings? Will she understand me? Everyone shares these questions and concerns in one form or another. The work I do with people is geared toward helping them to understand themselves better and to make better choices in their lives. I have many years of experience in working with people facing relationship difficulties, the challenge of using their skills to their best advantage, and in helping adults to navigate the challenges of parenting.

I see myself as an editor asked to help review and rewrite the narrative of a client's life. People often find themselves stuck or unhappy or confused by their own choices and their consequences. In an engaged, friendly and respectfully manner I work with a person to understand how they got to the place they are unhappy with. We then try to re-imagine their narrative, introduce new perspectives, or simply find a greater acceptance of those choices already made.

I am very fortunate to combine my three loves: people, psychology and dogs. Over the years my dogs have accompanied me to my office and have been of great therapeutic value and pleasure in their interaction with patients of all ages. Therapy is an exciting adventure in which therapist and patient agree to explore the patient's life, dreams, problems, fears, hopes and aspirations. As therapist it is my responsibility to guide: sometimes lead, share and always to jointly explore who the individual is. While everyones' therapy is different, therapy is the opportunity to pull ones' life together and develop the courage to change.
