Do you notice yourself bumping up against the same old patterns? You may have disturbing memories that plague you, or feel stuck and afraid that you will never feel comfortable in your own skin. Maybe you struggle with feeling that you aren't good enough or deserving enough. Maybe you feel weighed down by emotional pain or shame that you can't seem to shake. So often our painful past experiences color our present perceptions, keeping us in a rut, circling through the same negative thoughts and feelings.

Is your past getting in the way of your present? The past can come back to haunt us in so many ways. In times of change and transition, old hurts rise to the surface and challenge us with challenging thougths and feelings. These thoughts leave you feeling disconnected from others, numb to your inner sense of knowing, overwhelmed with self doubt, and unsure of what to do next. This is not the real you. You are wired for connection and trust, but need some guidance to evoke this authentic self.

It’s such an intense and overwhelming time. We are all grieving. Before the coronavirus maybe you had some anxiety or a history of trauma but overall you were functioning and feeling OK without ongoing therapy. Or despite all you do to take care of yourself, you were experiencing quite a bit of anxiety and stress, struggling with feelings of shame, anger or self-hatred for a very long time. Now with the pandemic your nervous system is on overload and everything feels overwhelming, exhausting, scary. The existential pain you’ve struggled with is back and real and being felt by you and people all over the world.

Making that first call to start therapy can be hard; you're taking a risk that you'll connect with that voice on the phone, or that video image online. But you made that call-you took that risk... and that's incredible. We all need a safe space where we can talk through our fears, our worries, and our challenges. You want to find that right person who you know is not just listening to you; but really hearing you.

Life is full of change, sometimes self imposed and sometimes out of our control. During times of reflection and transition we find ourselves struggling with how to navigate the changing perception of our identity and confused about who to consult and trust. My interests are in working with you to find the insight you seek using an eclectic approach. I enjoy working with individuals to find a more authentic path of growth and personal expression. I also enjoy conducting process groups for the invaluable feedback group members provide each other.

Thank you for taking a moment to read about me and my work. My approach uses insight and depth psychotherapy combined with Mindfulness within a framework of awareness of the body. When our living process becomes stuck, therapy can move it forward. If you feel stuck in repetitive behaviors, painful feelings, and recurring anxious thoughts, I want to help you to identify how you are bogged down, so you can feel better. I can help to re-focus a sense of purpose...a way to step into your life more completely. This may include taking action if feeling adrift, or bringing clarity to a relationship.

Healing occurs when we get below the surface of the issue and connect back to our truth and authenticity. I am particularly good at helping you get to the root of your problems and dig deep. I help you identify the connection between your past experiences and how they have influenced who you are today and the actions you take in your life. Are you feeling lost or disconnected? Fearful of putting yourself out there, or questioning your path? Maybe you are navigating pivotal life and relationship changes and struggling with the grief and uncertainty of it all.

My goal is to listen well and provide the treatment that best meets your specific needs, to help you to identify your strengths and manage your vulnerabilities. In my work with families I encourage each person to express his/her individuality, and to cope with differences -striving for mutuality, fairness and harmony. My chief concern is with maximizing your capacities and potential, and helping you improve your relationship to yourself and to others. Together we may engage with imagery, sensory experiencing, movement, art, poetry and music to deepen self awareness and understanding (and relief from discomfort)
