About

Whether you’re struggling with stress, anxiety, or depression, psychotherapy can help you discover new perspectives and approaches for problems that are keeping you stuck. Exploring emotions and beliefs underlying self-defeating patterns of behavior creates opportunities for positive change and growth. Over 20 years of clinical experience combined with extensive training in specialized treatments for healing trauma and attachment wounds enables me to provide a customized approach to meet client’s goals.
Treatment focuses on creating a safe, collaborative therapeutic environment in which clients learn ways to discover and strengthen their inner resources to empower themselves and find greater harmony in their relationships.
I work with individuals, couples, and groups of people who are 18 years and older. In addition to being certified in EMDR and Internal Family Systems Therapy, I am a trained facilitator for the Mindfulness Based-Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), an evidence-based treatment program for sustainable weight loss without dieting.
