About

I am widely experienced in treating anxiety, mood problems, alcoholism, trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, co-dependency, and chronic stress from a mind/body and mindfulness perspective. I work with women and men, couples, older adults, anxious and depressed younger people. My therapies commonly include other family or significant others as needed. I've had specialized training working with the deeper mind for rapid intervention, enhancing motivation, to transform perceptions that keep us stuck, to resolve problems resistant to change and to help families cope with addiction. I offer workshops to enhance resiliency, relationship skills, creativity and problem solving.
My services are offered in a warm, relaxed, home office environment in a woodsy setting. I am active and direct, and a strong effort is made to capture the essence of the problem by the end of the first session. Please Note: services are not offered for the purpose of litigation or disability determinations.
Sandtray therapy is optional and available to clients of all ages except very young children. My clients use a tray of sand and miniature figures to create pictures in the tray that help grasp problems that are complicated or hard to put into words.
