For over 25 years, I have helped people deal with anxiety and stress caused by trauma, loss, relationship challenges, life transitions, medical illness, and infertility.
Do you have a secret? Do you seem calm and confident on the outside while on the inside you are anxious, worried and stressed? Do you feel lonely because no one really knows how you feel? Are you looking for a safe place and ally who can help you learn how to reduce stress and enjoy life more? My practice focuses on anxiety and stress. As a long standing practitioner of meditation, mindfulness, and mind-body techniques for therapy, I integrate talk therapy with mindfulness based stress reduction, EFT(tapping), thermal biofeedback, imagery, and hypnotherapy techniques to help clients find relief.

I have training in grief and loss as well as infertility, parenting, and adoption.
Is there something holding you back from the experience of feeling fully alive, safe, and satisfied in your own life; in your own skin? Experiencing internal and external difficulties long enough and under enough stress, we become disconnected to what makes life worth living. I believe my job is to provide a safe space and be a supportive, caring, non-judgmental presence as a guide and collaborator. Together we can face what is hurting or not helping you. I have worked over the years in a variety of settings with adults, children, teens, families and couples from diverse backgrounds and identities.

I specialize in working with individuals who have been touched by adoption. Every adopted person has his/her own unique feelings about being adopted. For some, these may be "back burner" yet for others they may be more complex. I counsel adoptees - at various life stages - as they explore how adoption may affect their identity, feelings surrounding grief and loss, intimacy issues and relationships with family and friends. I have extensive experience working with adoptees (and birth parents) as they navigate the complexities of the search and reunion process and reconnection.
