Are you searching for a place to heal and progress to your fullest potential? I help individuals dealing with loss, transitions, and mood disorders, including anxiety and depression, as well as survivors of trauma. My gentle, wholistic psychoanalytic approach is based in the work of C.G. Jung, emphasizing the search for meaning and wholeness. I have more than fifteen years experience in dream work, mindfulness, and the creative process. I also work to help release creative or emotional blocks. I am an analyst member of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts and the International Association of Analytic Psychologists.

A retired R.N., I see how physical issues influence psychological health. Memories, emotions, pre-verbal experiences exist unconsciously; accessing these increases emotional health and energy. Together we work to rebuild the psyche. Medical and mental health professionals, as well as writers and artists find my Jungian approach particularly helpful.

My life and work experiences also include writing, painting, a master's in Renaissance Literature, teaching literature and composition at the college level, raising three children, and living a varied and adventurous life. All of this enriches both my practice and my empathy with my clients.
