My clinical practice draws from extensive training in psychotherapy that integrates a psychodynamic perspective with therapeutic interventions that match the unique needs of a client. The range of interpersonal and skill-based interventions includes an understanding of family, culture, and gender specific influences on the current issues or concerns. The use of mindfulness principles and skills provides an added support to clients for strengthening their ability to better manage stress and for overall well-being. In over two decades as a psychotherapist I have consistently found that an integrative approach is most effective for promoting the positive outcomes that my clients are seeking.

Whether you are currently in crisis or want to address a problem you have lived with for years - psychotherapy can help. Psychotherapy is a collaboration between therapist and client. It makes use of the strengths, resources and goals of the client and the supportive attunement, non-judgmental perspective, training and experience of the therapist. Many of my clients come to me because they want to incorporate mindfulness and somatic therapies with talk therapy in order to work more effectively with anxiety, depression, pain and other challenges in which the body is implicated.

Unexpected life events as well as transitions - both planned and unanticipated - present real challenges to our psychological well-being. These are times that often lead people into psychotherapy. The confidential space, the opportunity to speak honestly and deeply without misunderstanding or judgment make the therapeutic relationship a powerful vehicle for change.

I have been in private practice for 30 years in the capacity of family therapist and clinical director at two residential facilities. I do not believe in long term therapy, and on occasion, clients will come back for a "tune-up." I am direct, I will give you feedback, (not tell you what to do) and be very supportive at the same time. Family therapists, believe that behaviors get passed down from generation to generation. We would explore your "family of origin" and sort out what behaviors are working for you and what needs to change. If YOU do the work, You WILL get better!

If you are experiencing stressful life challenges or are going through difficult life-cycle transitions that may be taxing your ability to cope, it does not mean there is something wrong with you, or that you are weak. Therapy and life coaching can help you make a courageous and transformative change in your life, and experience more joy and peace overall.
