My ideal client is adolescent or adult, with an interest in improving and transforming their life via therapy. I focus on the whole person, contextualizing presenting problems/diagnoses within the framework of family dynamics, peer relations, trauma history, physical health, and job/school experience. That is, I don't consider it useful to assume that issues arise in a vacuum! The greatest gift my clients give me is their ability to teach me far more than I could possibly teach them. I consider our time in session one of validation, hope, and intense curiosity about my client's lives.

My foundations are in anthropology, Jungian approaches, and creative writing as ways to explore the totality of the human condition. I have extended this interest now to therapy and social work as I am a "frontline" person interested in holistic approaches in difficult circumstances.

Specialties: human systems; adolescent and family (LOVE my kids in therapy!); holistic approaches; therapeutic techniques including DBT, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma-Focused CBT; team player; role of good government; empathic listening; victim-offender issues; crisis intervention; workplace issues.
