About

I'm a very experienced psychotherapist with over 30 years experience in many settings. I'm warm and compassionate, but also practical. I work from a growth model that helps you access your own wisdom and make a commitment to change. My background in the arts and Jungian psychology attunes me to the dreams and imagery that can inform you about your life course, but I also help you bring these dreams into action. My experience with mind/body can help you prepare for and recover from surgery, develop resilience, stress reduction, confront mortality and life changes, find meaningful work, and appreciate relationships.
1) Body image---published Whole Person Healthcare (Praeger 2007, 3 Vol.), write and teach therapists in the US, Sweden and Israel 2) Diversity--studied and taught at the Jung Institute in Zurich, Gestalt Institute NY, UCLA, Saybrook, Lesley;worked in children's hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, health spa's 3) Awards--Fellow of APA, Rollo May award
Use words, imagery, movement to help people with illness and healing, surgery, life changes, loss, marriage and relationships, meaningful work, a life of meaning and purpose, spirituality
