I am currently accepting individual adult clients of all ages. My approach is warm and collaborative, drawing on different therapeutic models to target your specific needs. I use a psychodynamic lens to help you identify what past and present conditions are determining your choices and coming between you and a more satisfying way of life, cognitive and mindfulness approaches to help you regulate emotions and gain perspective on self-defeating thoughts, and Sandplay therapy to process trauma and explore states of mind that are difficult to put into words. I also use Ecotherapy perspectives and exercises.

My ideal client is someone who wants solutions to current life issues, but also to explore and let go of limiting beliefs and patterns. Many of them deal with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship issues, and blocked creativity. Uncovering and releasing unresolved emotions opens up space for lasting change. My Mind/Body approach integrates relational talk therapy, somatics, and expressive arts. Through these processes of self-discovery and healing, clients may feel more empowered and connected with their innate vitality and creativity.

I believe that coming to therapy is about making a home in ourselves: a home where we feel at ease, where all the different parts of us are okay and we don't feel that something is wrong with who we are. When life gets hard we can feel isolated and cutoff - from the people around us, and also from ourselves. When we most need to feel compassion towards ourselves it can be hardest to find. My work is to help you find that compassion for yourself and to support you in strengthening your capacity to meet whatever life brings with courage and confidence.

Once-upon-a-time none of us were parents and we didn't think much about how difficult that role could be. Fast forward to today and here you are searching for help with your child. Addictive technologies, teaching self-discipline, developing strategies for coping with change are challenging. Teaching life skills, and helping parents be more effective is what I've been doing since 1991. I'm what you might call a generalist in that I work with boys and girls of all ages and relate as easily to a six-year-old as to a sixteen-year-old.

I enjoy partnering with all ages, but especially with adolescents, young adults, adults and seniors going through significant life transitions and crises or who just generally feel stuck. Together, we’ll find clues in childhood, family patterns, memories, dreams and nightmares, negative thoughts, and hurtful relationships to alleviate anxiety, fear, depression, grief, and hopelessness. I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds and really resonate with artist, musicians, and other creative types.

We can't change our destination overnight but we can change our direction. A deep and felt understanding of how and why we live our lives can allow us to reorient ourselves to a more fulfilling life. I believe that therapeutic treatment must be tailored to each individual person seeking change. I work with adults who have endured trauma, feel anxious or depressed. I see couples that have drifted apart, struggle with anger, parenting difficulties and adolescents overwhelmed with the highs and lows of emerging adulthood. I also work with expectant parents and infant parent dyads having difficulty connecting with each other.
