About

Marriage and family relationships can be our greatest source of joy and pain as well. Our most significant relationship often takes the backseat as we cope with career, family and experiences life sends our way. Meanwhile, today’s parents are challenged more than ever to raise healthy, happy children. And then each of us will face personal challenges as well. Depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, mood swings, low self- esteem, grief and loss, lifespan transitions. There are times when each one of us needs extra support and a trained, confidential and non- judgmental counselor. I welcome all gender identities/ orientations.
Using a Mindfulness approach, I have decades of experience working with individuals, couples and families. I help people manage anxiety, depression and borderline personality disorder, by teaching mindfulness and DBT skills as well as, somatic and creative therapies. I use Gottman, Imago and EFT with couples and am a trained facilitator in Prepare/Enrich.
The Sufi poet Rumi wrote that “the wound is the place where the light enters you.” You have the capacity for healing, resilience and joy. By addressing the wound, I will help you find your light. In a comfortable and compassionate setting, you will gain new tools for living, listen for your heart’s truth and clear space for the life you dream of living.
