I specialize in working with adults who have experienced trauma of various kinds (illness, accidents, assault, loss) in childhood or adulthood. I have worked for many years with women and men who have experienced childhood sexual, physical or emotional abuse, or adult sexual assault. Recurring thoughts and images about the trauma, or less conscious feelings such as fear and worthlessness, or difficulties letting anyone get close, can persist, even if it happened long ago. My focus in therapy is to help you work through these experiences so they no longer prevent you from living more fully in your present life.

In therapy, we learn to see ourselves more clearly through identifying our strengths and weaknesses with more openess, curiousity, and less judgement. It's through this compassionate and conscious way of relating to ourselves that we can begin to make wiser decisions for ourselves and our relationships. In my 33 years of practice, I have worked with individuals, couples, families and groups. After working in a hospital system for many years, I'm very comfortable working with people with chronic illness, depression and loss. I've also been dedicated to helping women around body image issues and transitions.
