I have been privileged to help adults and couples with life transitions and stress-related problems; depression and anxiety; grief and bereavement; traumatic events of childhood and adulthood; sexual identity issues; and other life problems. I work to bring you in close touch with the parts of yourself that you have been avoiding, neglecting or rejecting, in order to develop a different relationship with yourself, a relationship of understanding, kindness and forgiveness. When we are no longer frightened by those parts of ourselves that were unacceptable, we slow down, lose our reactivity, and remain present, even in difficult circumstances.

I have always been attracted to both ends of life's spectrum, birth and death. My work centers around the grief we experience in life, whether over the death of someone we love, the loss of a relationship, or an ending in a chapter of our lives. Our work together is based on a mindful, cognitive behavioral approach, as we gently explore the connection between your emotions and the thoughts behind them. I help you process your grief the way you need to do it and guide you as you find your way back to yourself.

Are you experiencing emotional pain that has become too amplified to sustain in silence? Perhaps the burdens you have been carrying for so long are finally too heavy to manage alone. Unresolved past experiences, loss, dysfunctional relationships, and negative self-criticism can hinder our ability to recover from the difficulties life throws our way. Let’s work together to create a therapeutic relationship built on hope and trust.

Do you feel life is restricting you from who you really want to be for yourself, your partner and/or your family? My primary goal in therapy is to help enhance your ability to make choices. I use personalized approaches to help empower your bravery to look inside yourself. The authenticity of these choices will lead to serving you and your relationships in the best ways possible. Assessing our sometimes, self-imposed, "roadblocks" in life can help us build accountability for our choices. This, in turn, allows these choices to become "building blocks" toward lasting joy for each relationship creation of your choice.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. In addition to speaking with you initially on the phone, I am happy to offer a free 50 minute consultation in my office so you can remove the guesswork and get a clear sense of what therapy with me will feel like. I bring a wealth of experience in treating everything from depression, anxiety and relationship challenges to ADHD, addictive behaviors and trauma. I have an excellent resource of referrals to physicians (both Western and naturopaths), psychiatrists, and nutritionists. Most importantly, I listen deeply to my clients and work collaboratively to facilitate change.

It takes a village...Navigating through the transitions and challenges in our lives is meant to be a collaboration with family, friends, elders, wise women and men. However, in the times of instant change and mobility, some may find themselves lost and alone, far from those they confide in and look up to. Sometimes they isolate for fear of vulnerability and the pressure to appear "to have it together". When this self-judgement and drive to be “perfect” eventally takes its toll, one can be left feeling bereft of deep connection to self and others. Finding a therapist you can trust and confide in, can help you find your way.

From a psychodynamic lens, I create a supportive environment for my clients based on trust and connection. Growth becomes possible when we have the opportunity to reflect and gain insight in a non-judgmental setting. From this space we can begin to integrate aspects of ourselves that have been neglected due to challenging or painful experiences.
