I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.
After providing psychotherapy in medical, community and university settings, I created Lakeshore Psychotherapy Alliance to offer personalized services to clients of diverse socio-cultural experiences. I specialize in helping people, including young adults, address the challenges of life transitions, stress, career, illness, acculturation, self esteem, relationships and early loss/trauma.
I practice clinical psychology as an art and a science and with warmth, flexibility and intelligence. I have extensive experience and specialized training in a range of therapeutic approaches including couples counseling, gender & multiculturally-sensitive, mindfulness-based and emotion-focused therapies. I am a lifelong practitioner of meditation and yoga.
