Welcome! I am currently only taking new clients interested in joining an online Internal Family Systems (IFS) Practice Group. These small groups offer hands-on IFS activities to strengthen your relationship with all parts of you. To sign up for a group (I am not currently adding to my waitlist for individual therapy), please contact me via the email link. I specialize in working with complexity and internal conflict. Some examples: "I'm afraid all the time even though I know I'm safe," or "I find myself awake all night when all I want to do is sleep." IFS lets us view conflicting parts with open-hearted curiosity.

I "Circle Forward" with adults and couples from diverse backgrounds, cultures, experiences, identities & belief systems. I am skilled at supporting people who have been overwhelmed and struggle with "trauma" - unresolved, survival responses (fight, flight, appease & shut down). These natural defensives were essential to dealing with threat in the past, but can get stuck and intrude on relationships and on physical, emotional & spiritual rhythms of day-to-day life. I support you to allow these incomplete organic impulses to emerge & complete slowly, a little at a time. I work online and in Shelburne Falls, MA.

I specialize in helping clients make the changes they need to have a satisfying and meaningful life. I believe that psychotherapy is about more than just talking things through--it is also about learning to deal with the problems life brings, whether by learning ways new ways of coping, practicing acceptance, or making sure that you are building the life you want. I enjoy working with adults and adolescents, either individually or with their families.

I believe that the journey toward becoming authentically oneself is among the most important work we do. My practice focuses on creating space in which transformation is possible and old patterns can shift into something that allows for growth and possibility. Putting language to complex internal experiences, forging connections, and examining clearly and without shame or judgment the places where stuckness happens are often crucial parts of this process. I work with clients to explore all aspects of identity, focusing on gender and identity development but also intersections of experiences of anxiety, depression, trauma, and dysregulation of mood.

In these times of collective difficulty and hibernation, much needed courage is required. When we hear messages dismissing this, it can reduce our trust in what we are perceiving in the world. At this time, are you wanting to initiate change, add motivation or more quiet softness into your life? How do you handle stress? I help purpose-driven people like artists and/or activists. I also love working with recovering addict/alcoholics. Are you wanting or needing to live more from a place of balance? I help clients work through inner blocks, to reconnect their truth; thereby creating a more intentional life.

Many people who have experience in therapy remain puzzled as to why they find it so difficult to change even after learning about the dynamics of their emotional suffering. Thinking processes can only take us so far and often are unable to instigate a deep psychological shift. Unconscious processes, even brought into the light, will resist attempts to think them away. Imagination and the body are the home of the subconscious. It is in that world, that real and lasting change can transpire. Together we will attempt to get close and "withstand" conflicts of the mind rather than "understand" them.

Through self-observation, mind-body awareness and developing self-acceptance and compassion we can update coping styles, patterns, thoughts and behaviors that have become sources of feeling "stuck" and suffering. Through caring, direct, and attuned engagement I help people "unlock" and reconnect with themselves in order to experience more fully rather than just get by.

I find current notions of “behavioral” or “mental” health to be rooted in an inaccurate medical paradigm, and so I prefer to consider social/emotional/spiritual wellbeing; “psyche” literally means “the soul” and thus I see the goal of psychotherapy as to help heal the soul. Depression and anxiety are understandable responses to problematic situations, and I enjoy helping to unravel the complicated dynamics of your lived experience in order to achieve your goals. I often work with men around issues of gender, identity, and culture; I also enjoy working with creative people, and people navigating challenging life transitions.

Often, this involves understanding and exploring the family dynamics within which they were raised, and/or past or current factors that appear to inhibit change. Then, via treatment, I aim to support people to make the changes they choose in the time that is right for them.
