In my practice I emphasize depth work, including insight and emotional experiencing, that may allow for problems that have not responded to more solution focused methods to resolve. My focus is particularly appropriate for people seeking more fulfilling relationships and rich inner lives in addition to the resolution of a concern.

My doctorate in clinical psychology focused on mindfulness-based psychotherapies with scientific support for treating emotional concerns, including depression and anxiety. I also have a strong background in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapies. My psychotherapy training is supported by extensive experience practicing and training meditation and mindfulness.

I have special expertise in dealing with issues related to relationships and relationship difficulties. I specialize in working with people with creative practices, including creative professionals. I work with a diversity of backgrounds and lifestyles.
