I implement an integrative approach, as therapy is not a "one size fits all” process.
Grief takes many forms: Relationship, career, role transitions, aging, and health loss, to name a few. Whether someone dies by suicide, illness, accident, or natural circumstances, our world turns upside-down and we feel hopeless, our grief endless. Sometimes there's despair, anxiety, sometimes relief. Sometimes we think of what we could've, would've or should've done. Sometimes we're just numb. Sometimes we (or others) judge that passing time should measure our healing. Grief is individual and personal; there is no right or wrong way to feel. One thing IS certain: We need support, hope and understanding.

Pain and suffering does not need to be a normal way of life. Have you been numbing the symptoms, but not healing the root pain? By letting go of judgment and finding your authentic self, I can help you feel empowered, in finding your own sense of healing. While cultivating an authentic relationship, we can create a healthier way to approach life. I incorporate an integrative model that is rooted in mindfulness practices and can be tailored to your individual needs.

My treatment approach includes an integrative blend of depth psychotherapy, somatic body psychotherapy, mindfulness, multigenerational family systems, internal family systems (IFS) therapy, neurons-emotional technique (NET) and mind-body wellness coaching.
I help empower sensitive, empathic adults to recognize and honor their own needs and voices.

Perhaps you haven’t even recognized your own needs many times, being so attuned to others. I offer expertise, guidance and support for you to better recognize. understand, honor, and tend to your unique needs and your valued relationships, and navigate these challenges according to your own Inner Compass.

My paramount specialty as a Life Crisis Doctor focuses on people suffering major attachment loss -- relationship, job/career, or health. Loss of such magnitude can trigger Major Depression with its overwhelming feelings of fear, desperation, and darkness. I know this terrain from the inside, having survived two separate near death experiences. I first guide people in crisis through its dangers and pitfalls so that they survive their ordeal. Then I guide them through the transformative opportunity created by the Crisis which has cracked them open, making accessible their gifts, their medicine -- contributions to the community from their Real Self.

Therapy for Individuals, Couples, and Families. You are here reading about me because you have likely been suffering – individually or with the ones you love. I have always said “We are messy people…” Our feelings, thoughts, actions often cause unintended conflict – miscommunication devolving into an increasing distance with those we intend to be closer to. Sound familiar? I have been an active advocate for families for over 30 years and a psychotherapist for nearly 20 years with a private practice focusing on Marital and Family discord, trauma recovery, severe depression, the treatment of anxiety disorders and chemical dependency

The decision to seek therapy can be one of the most important steps we take on the path to emotional wellness. It's also a decision that often comes about after a great deal of contemplation and reflection. I believe this path can ultimately lead to a more enriched and authentic life, as well as a new found inner truth and self-awareness. By addressing core issues that we often overlook, we can open the door for improvement not only within ourselves but also in our relationships with others.
