Announcement icon I am available via teletherapy during COIVD public health emergency. I'm licensed to see clients in NY and NJ. Contact me for details.
Are you seeking an insightful, engaged, practical process for achieving change, passion, and/or joy in your couple relationship? I bring 30 years of multicultural experience to help you change your patterns of stress, fear, and trauma. I use collaborative, resilience, and strengths-based approaches, along with creative mind-body approaches which are especially effective for trauma-related issues. Tired of labels and pathologizing diagnostic frames? As responsive beings we adapt to our challenges and at times our adaptations need an update! Drawing on our holistic and creative selves we explore ways to embrace our humanness.
I work with couples and families on a wide range of life and relationship challenges, such as, communication, anger, loss, grief, identity, and life transitions. Drawing on my research, I also train, internationally, professionals in mental health fields and collaborative, somatic, relationally-oriented practices, and improvisation.
Therapy can be scary & exciting. Rest assured, we will build a safe space together. You are in the driver's seat. As a practitioner of improvisation I create a paced action-oriented context for change. Additionally, my Eastern-Western sensibility offers a grounding presence to create a rainbow of possibilities for a joyful, meaningful life. Let's connect!

Consultation Group for Therapist

An open consultation group for therapists' continued growth and to be in dialogue with fellow professionals. Additionally, increase your creativity, prevent burnout and get the help to stay unstuck.
