About

As a therapist with 25 years of experience and extensive training, I understand the complexities of suffering and the healing process. Professional peers have described me as "exceptionally attuned," "warmly down to earth" and "to the point." I offer a compassionate, accepting, and wise presence to the therapy relationship. Because this relationship is paramount to your therapy experience, I offer a free initial consultation so that we can meet. I believe that human beings have an amazing ability to gain insight and create change in their lives and am dedicated to this process for clients, myself and all beings.
Experience-based wisdom and compassion, not the latest fad, make a good therapist. My foundation is in attachment, object relations, and psychodynamic theories. I discerningly use therapeutic techniques, such as mindfulness, CBT, DBT, psychodrama, play therapy, gestalt methods, etc. My expertise is anxiety, depression, child and adolescent issues, failure to launch, and relationship issues.
Buddhist Psychology enhances my practice. Jack Kornfield, one of my teachers, describes,"When the stories of our life no longer bind us, we discover within them something greater. We discover that within the very limitations of form...is the freedom and harmony we have sought for so long." from A Path with Heart.
