About

In my practice with adults, I address a range of issues from emotional stress, grief, anxiety, depression, relational issues, and couples' concerns. I also specialize in helping people cope with health conditions and chronic illness. I incorporate a psycho-dynamic and relational analytic orientation to my work. I engage clients in a process of greater reflection and mindfulness and guide them to learn how to lower reactivity, stress and anxiety. I provide a holistic approach including reducing symptoms that limit quality of life and improving one's awareness of self-experiences that hinder greater personal freedom, growth and healing.
I am a Guided Imagery and Stress Reduction specialist and have designed and taught interventions to lower test and injection anxiety, preparing for surgery/chemotherapy, insomnia and coping with auto immune disorders. I am also a certified Multiple Sclerosis specialist, and serve on the Health Care Council of the MSAA.
