"My training is in Expressive Arts Therapy, Psychoanalytic psychotherapy and EMDR. This combination allows me to work deeply and creatively, assessing your unique needs throughout the time of our work together. Therapy is a collaborative process: it happens in a space/time that is removed from the regular occurrences of life. As such, it is an opportunity to play around with ideas, thoughts and feelings in a safe setting.I take our work together very seriously, but do my best not to take myself too seriously. A sense of humor is an important component of this work, and of life."

"Therapy is a process of exploring the many ways we can understand and respond differently to the world around us and the world within us. As part of the therapy process, we unfold, heal, and grow, moving away from potentially self-defeating patterns, and towards greater well-being. This includes improved relationships, relief from painful feelings, increased self-understanding, stronger communication and coping skills, and greater meaning in life. I have worked with many people of many backgrounds on this journey. "
