In my 20 years of clinical, academic, and advocacy experience, I have worked with clients who present with a wide range of issues. I specialize in recovery from trauma (particularly childhood abuse/neglect, sexual assault and domestic violence), successful movement through life transitions (young adulthood, career, parenthood, mid-life and loss), and repair of interpersonal relationships (including a specialty in couples therapy). I have advanced training in both trauma treatment and couples therapy, which uniquely positions me to treat couples where one or both partners have a trauma history.
My goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment where clients can explore unresolved issues, vulnerabilities and relational difficulties that interfere with happiness. I work creatively and collaboratively with clients, drawing upon client's strengths and experiences, and meeting individuals and couples where they are in their journey.
Within the accepting, compassionate context of the therapeutic relationship, I use gentle challenge to help reveal maladaptive thoughts and unhealthy behaviors. Once clients recognize unproductive patterns, change can happen. I help clients make connections between their past and present to gain a better understanding of self and to foster healing.
