Announcement icon All sessions are conduced via telehealth, phone or video, and will be until it is safe to return to in-person visits.
Many of my clients are those who tend to give too much, disconnect from their own needs and desires, feel depressed and anxious, and/or experience chronic pain. They are often highly sensitive and imaginative, helpers and healers, with literary, artistic, or philosophical leanings. They are all seeking to heal inner conflicts and relationship problems rooted in early attachment wounds or traumatic experiences. Most importantly, my clients have come to recognize it's time to do their inner work in order to create the outer life they want, and they continue to grow and deepen into their innate wisdom long after therapy has ended.
My work integrates psychology with spirituality, the arts, and humanities. I have advanced training in Jungian/Depth psychology, particularly the work of Marion Woodman, as well as somatic psychologies such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR. Becoming whole is not just about the behavior and brain functions, it's about the whole person.
I have experienced parenting, divorce, bereavement, and chronic pain as well as love, joy, and boundless enthusiasm. I am a creative writer, performer, and spiritual seeker. All have spurred me to keep learning what it means to be human. I look forward to learning what you have to say about this amazing experience of Life--the beauty and the suffering.
