The heart of my work is compassion and curiosity. It is my goal to instill these into my clients. I believe each person is innately health seeking. Each of us can find our way off this healthy path for very important and powerful reasons. We work together to understand these reasons with deep compassion. With curiosity we look to discover ways to get back on the path to the healthiest self. I discovered over the past decade that compassion allows us to move on and that with curiosity new choices emerge which can allow for deep, profound and lasting change.
I work with adults throughout the life cycle as well as with mothers who have an infant or who have just had a second child.
My approach is eclectic, drawing from contemporary psychoanalytic theory, attachment and neuroscience research, CBT and mindfulness stress reduction. I enjoy this work and helping others. While on occasion I am not be the best fit for a client, when the fit is there it is a transformational experience.
