I am a trauma informed therapist, with 30+ years’ experience, my own healing journey, and clinical education focused on chronic pain and illness .
I invite you to a safe and compassionate space to untangle and release difficulties that interfere with your quality or functioning in life. Taking a look at hurts can help normalize and clarify confusing or negative behavior, thoughts, and emotions to integrate past experiences. Embodiment, mindfulness, and somatic experiential practices lead you to gain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. These practical techniques, along with education, and therapeutic processing will guide you along your path to integrated health and the resilience needed to manage the most stressful circumstances. You become your own best friend.

My main areas of focus are persistent pain conditions, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief/loss and chronic illness . Having found that a variety of modalities are more effective than one specific approach, I engage a complement of therapeutic techniques including; mind/body, evidence-based options such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), pain reprocessing therapy (PRT) along with a blend of integrative, psychodynamic and person-centered therapies. I am dedicated to providing non-judgmental, compassionate support in a truly collaborative environment.

With a background in existential therapy, I specialize in depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, relationship counseling, chronic pain and headache treatment.
Are you finding it difficult to engage in activities that once brought joy and meaning to your life due to sadness, feelings of loss, or overwhelming worry? I help people reengage in valued activities and relationships, heal from trauma, and rediscover what is most important in their lives. My approach to therapy is relational and integrative. I employ behavioral health interventions, viewing these elements as tools that are best utilized in a broader person-centered context of physiological health and psychological wholeness.

You’re a little different. You’re seeking more out of life than mainstream society implies is possible. Perhaps you’ve always felt that there’s some piece missing but you can’t put your finger on it, or that you have a calling that you haven’t discovered yet. You feel things strongly. You may have been told that you feel things too much, or that you are too much. Maybe you’re looking for a better way to live with anxiety, depression, a trauma history, or an illness you can’t make sense of. Maybe you’re not sure what’s wrong, but you know things aren’t quite right. You wonder if there’s anyone else like you. I’m so glad you're here.

I am a highly experienced therapist who comes from a holistic perspective, that is, all aspects of a person’s life are significant. It is my intention that people I work with experience a sense of being understood and cared for. I especially enjoy my work when clients find inner resources to understand and resolve their difficulties. Clients are greatly relieved, sometimes amazed, when for the first time, through the application of Mindfulness CBT, they are able to manage their busy, distracted minds, seemingly overwhelming emotions, or the constant distraction of chronic pain .

Many people in pain , crisis or with history of trauma find they are trapped in a list of what they will not do but struggle to come up with pro active steps.
My goal is to bring to you, as my client, a safe place to explore what will give you the most support for growth you want. My office is also a place to learn and try out new coping skills. I am a mentor with shelves of tools, some of which will fit the life you want to go out and have; others which may not meet your style. An ideal relationship will give you client room to open yourself to thoughts and feelings and learn what you want and need and how to express that in healthy ways

I help folks manage chronic low mood, anxiety, stress, pain , and/or illness and medically unexplained symptoms through psychotherapy and clinical hypnosis.
Reaching out for therapy can feel like taking a step into the unknown. You might hope for someone on the other side who will care, listen, and know how to effectively navigate the terrain ahead. I take very seriously the responsibility being that person to my patients and work hard to provide high quality care that is evidence-based and individualized. Have you tried to manage your symptoms, but nothing seems to quite work yet? Maybe you feel like giving psychotherapy a try - or another try. I am committed to collaborating with you or your loved one on an ambitious plan for treatment toward real change.

Maybe you've been diagnosed with a long term illness or have had symptoms for years and at times you don’t recognize yourself anymore. You know these health struggles are somehow behind your depressed and anxious feelings, and you feel alone…like no one understands. Right now, you may have more questions than answers, but one thing you know for sure is that you’d do anything to get your life back. You grieve for the person you used to be and find it hard to imagine yourself living a worthwhile life with this illness trying to drag you down every chance it gets.
