My clinical practice draws from extensive training in psychotherapy that integrates a psychodynamic perspective with therapeutic interventions that match the unique needs of a client. The range of interpersonal and skill-based interventions includes an understanding of family, culture, and gender specific influences on the current issues or concerns. The use of mindfulness principles and skills provides an added support to clients for strengthening their ability to better manage stress and for overall well-being. In over two decades as a psychotherapist I have consistently found that an integrative approach is most effective for promoting the positive outcomes that my clients are seeking.

Our way of live has been turned upside down. The structures of our community that ground, secure and orient us, have been hit by this pandemic. We find ourselves feeling disoriented and out of sorts. Others are grappling with not only the upending of routines caused by the pandemic but are fearing for their life or their livelihood. Whatever your situation, your life has been changed right now by something outside your control, and this is invariably stressful. And, of course, many of you were dealing with mental health issues or traumatic life events before the complication of a pandemic.

***NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME*** In a time of such uncertainty, it is more important than ever to connect, feel heard, and to tune into ourselves. I use a relational approach to therapy which considers the therapeutic relationship to be transformative and healing, a vehicle for better understanding our internal world. When given the space to talk things out authentically with someone who really listens, we learn to tune into ourselves so we can move forward in a more constructive way.

– My schedule is fully booked – As each person is unique, the best therapy is individualized. I am very flexible to what you personally need, constructing therapy based on what works to relieve suffering, foster growth, and develop insight. We will focus on understanding, but we might use mindfulness, anxiety management techniques, or other modalities. I avoid jargon and acronyms, preferring to talk in more ordinary or evocative language. Sometimes, there are big issues to grapple with, but often by focusing on seemingly small blocks, we can loosen the process of growth and the experience of being alive to one's own life.

I do not believe in long term therapy, and on occasion, clients will come back for a "tune-up." I am direct, I will give you feedback, (not tell you what to do) and be very supportive at the same time. Family therapists, believe that behaviors get passed down from generation to generation.

Counseling facilitates discovery and mastery of your inner resources. Spend less time on what you perceive as "wrong" and more time determining your true desires and manifesting them. View problems as opportunities to release limitations, to grow and to experience more joy. Clarify your true desires; learn that you are a powerful creator - in thought, word and deed. Recognize the guidance communicated by your emotions; focus on what is wanted now; release negative thoughts, images and bio-energetic blocks; allow more joy and good into your life; resolve trauma; manage stress and balance health by attending to body, mind and spirit.
