I work solely with adults over the age of 35. It takes courage to engage in the psychotherapy process. I believe that therapy can have healing and growthful effects on peoples' lives and that emotional health significantly contributes to physical health and well-being. Facing stress, pain and trauma can be scary and I feel fortunate and honored to be able to work with people at difficult and painful times in their lives. I greatly respect the growth process that comes with the work of psychotherapy. I view the relationship between patient and psychologist as collaborative and largely driven by the expressed needs of the patient.
My therapy approach combines aspects of many theories and I bring the skills that will be most helpful to the person I am directly working with at any given time. I often use mindfulness-based approaches (e.g.,breathwork) in my work. Therapy is a unique experience within which to examine one's life and make changes that lead to greater life satisfaction.
Our work will focus on relief from sadness, anxiety, isolation, loneliness and interpersonal conflicts in a variety of ways. Therapy may address experiences of loss and finding value, purpose and meaning of personal identity at different life stages. I strive to offer a safe space within which exploration of possible and authentic change and growth happens.
