I am passionate about helping people build a healthy relationship with themselves, based upon self-care and self-compassion.
How are you faring through the Coronavirus pandemic? Are you too busy taking care of others to know the answer to that question and perhaps feeling overwhelmed? Or are your normal personal challenges exacerbated now? More anxious, or depressed, struggling more with food and body issues... I am here to help now and when the crisis subsides and we are able to return to normal life. I offer telehealth so we can speak from the comfort of your home and when the virus passes you would have the choice to continue that way or meet in person.

Welcome to my page! I am mindful of how expensive therapy can be and I offer an affordable sliding scale. My approach as a psychodynamically trained psychologist is to create an atmosphere of safety and empathy to help you feel at ease. I will work with you to unfold and rework your deep seated beliefs. These beliefs form out of experiences throughout your life, especially in childhood, and are often maladaptive, limiting, and impede your functioning, causing noticeable symptoms. Furthermore, they may get in the way of achieving your desired goals, and negatively impact your self-esteem and ability to cope with stress.

Thank you for taking a moment to read about me and my work. My approach uses insight and depth psychotherapy combined with Mindfulness within a framework of awareness of the body. When our living process becomes stuck, therapy can move it forward. If you feel stuck in repetitive behaviors, painful feelings, and recurring anxious thoughts, I want to help you to identify how you are bogged down, so you can feel better. I can help to re-focus a sense of purpose...a way to step into your life more completely. This may include taking action if feeling adrift, or bringing clarity to a relationship.

During these Covid times, depression, anxiety, mood swings and relationship issues are playing a prominent part in our lives. I specialize in a personal approach that address who you are, what you’re experiencing, and where you’re trying to be. My orientation is Jungian, which involves compassion, dream work, the unconscious and insight. That which we can understand is more bearable and easier to shift. It results in a sense of richness and meaningfulness. I am also pragmatic in my use of cognitive behavioral tools, which support the process. Ignoring nagging issues rarely results in them going away. It can get be better.

I really enjoy working with individuals and couples. I help clients become more aware of their body sensations and use that language to identify feelings and thoughts. This allows clients to connect with their full internal experience. Clients find this extremely helpful, especially those who have suffered traumatic incidents or long-term traumas. I am gentle and supportive in my work and use deep emotional exploration of past and present mixed with a body-based mindful approach to move clients toward healing. I am EFT informed when it comes to couples work. Couples find me grounding, fair, and supportive.

Fact is, the past often gets in the way of living life to its fullest. Do you feel emotionally drained, empty inside with thoughts of self-loathing? Maybe you are consumed with shame over memories, behaviors or thoughts you cannot seem to control. Loss of sleep and an overall sense of irritability can overwhelm any sense of normalcy. This is not the real you-but how to get out from under it? Breakthroughs happen... when digging deep one needs an experienced hand to shine a light to help.
