I offer Somatic Experiencing (SE) sessions. Do you struggle with the effects of trauma, stress, neglect or injury or feeling overwhelmed by issues of social justice and the environment? Living with and talking about these things can cause strong reactions in our bodies that deserve their own approach, in addition to psychotherapy. We want to feel comfortable in our skin - to be able to rest, feel a felt sense of belonging and to stand up for ourselves and others in a balanced way. SE helps clients navigate distressing emotions and memories as the related physical sensations gently become more differentiated and take on new meanings.

In order to do this work, your sense of comfort and trust comes first. I continually work to ensure that you feel understood.

I view mental health challenges as stemming from lived experiences. Family dynamics, traumas, and other events impact our ability to regulate emotions, know and accept ourselves, trust others, and form intimate and gratifying relationships. I believe both the body and mind are central components of therapeutic growth and healing. A main focus in my work has been the body-mind relationship in recovery from sexual violence, and I have also worked extensively with university students challenged by multicultural and diversity issues, and associated feelings of anxiety and depression.

As a therapist who goes to therapy, I know, firsthand, the importance of finding the right fit. The right therapist is different for each of us and often has little to do with programs completed or certifications earned. Instead, it’s about presence—about feeling safe to show up exactly as we are while being empowered to do what is right and true for us.

If you want to change thought patterns or behaviors, you may need to work with your body because it too has developed habits that support your cognitive and emotional habits. What distinguishes me as a psychotherapist is the amount of attention I give to the bodily components of mental/emotional habits and the resources I can bring to improve the body-mind connection. In my practice I use EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Neurofeedback (direct brain-training), and EFT (tapping to get traumatic memories unstuck).

I accept clients age 60 and over, younger if they are caring for an elder. Aging can bring the release from the worries and stress of youth, bring joy and possibilities with more free time. It can also bring anxiety about the future, depression, loss and grief, a disturbing medical diagnosis. I have almost thirty years of experience helping adults and their caregivers navigate emotional changes, trauma, challenges associated with dementia, changes in relationships, health status, grief and loss. It is my honor to walk with you at this time, and to help you find peace.

My primary therapeutic focus is to help teenagers and adults to develop a stronger sense of self and to develop the coping skills they will need to address issues of anxiety, self esteem and self worth. I use a non-judgmental, trauma informed and holistic approach to help clients develop their ability to self soothe, including using body/movement and grounding techniques. I focus on both personal autonomy and understanding ourselves in relationships, with the goal of moving out of stuck feelings and thoughts to embody a more curious stance of your experiences and the world around you.

Being human isn't easy. Being with other humans can be even more difficult! Looking for new ways to deal with the challenges of life, relationships, and the negative repetitive patterns in your own brain? Sometimes it helps to talk to someone in a non-judgmental, open and curious way to help sort things out, explore new ground, practice new responses to the same old patterns, or know yourself (and a loved one) in a new way.

Many of us look 'fine' on the outside, but inside it's more complicated than that. You may have feelings of uncertainty or insecurity, worry about some aspects of the future, or be dealing with fallout from the past. You may be struggling with challenging symptoms such as anxiousness, a sense of life dissatisfaction, or feeling 'low' much of the time. All of this is part of being a human in a complex time, and often this can be addressed by counseling. Talking and processing with another person can provide so much relief. I help by creating a safe space where you can feel free to, at your own pace, explore current challenges.

I believe the usefulness of therapy lies in the relationship the counselor and client create together. It is there that the client is able to safely explore the challenges of life. Within that relationship, personal strengths are cultivated, while weaknesses are identified and skills developed to inform how best to navigate through one's life fully. I have worked with students struggling under the pressures of academia; couples working to keep a relationship strong; couple's in the midst of separation/divorce; Individuals struggling with depression and anxiety.

What type of Ithaca mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ithaca?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
