People who see me for the first time are often feeling overwhelmed, confused, depressed or anxious. Some people are unable to sleep, have distressing thoughts, or cannot control troublesome habits and behaviors. Others have have struggled with chronic pain due to injuries or illnesses. Many have endured the stigma of having a major mental illness which created difficulties in daily functioning, mood swings, or poor judgement and distorted thinking. And others have functioned well with significant achievements in their careers, family, and relationships but still feel empty inside, and cannot experience pleasure, meaning, or fulfillment from their lives.

I utilize diverse approaches to facilitate healing, and tailor them to your particular goals and needs. Specialty areas include hypnosis for pain management, anxiety, depression, and habit control. I have many years of experience using psychodynamic approaches to uncover patterns that have inhibited growth, and contemporary eastern approaches using mindfulness.

I believe therapy begins with creating a safe and trusting relationship. It takes courage to make a telephone call to a complete stranger asking for help. I also know from my work with hypnosis people have hidden strengths and personal resources that can be further developed in our work together.
