"It is an honor to accompany individuals into the psyche where our deepest wounds are sometimes hidden. Healing energies can often be found in those depths, stimulating growth toward a more whole, authentic and satisfying existence. Sometimes the pain is on the surface, and symptom relief is necessary to allow the individual to return to a more effective functioning level. This can be accomplished through a combination of cognitive approaches (i.e., Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and body-centered approaches (i.e., focusing, embodied dream work, mindfulness)."

If circumstances have you feeling troubled or confused, or your relationships have become a source of frustration or distress, what and how to change may not come easy. I help people sort out what no longer works and find the way forward."

"All human beings are capable of meaningful and lasting transformation. All of us, regardless of whether we are 6 or 60, can use our minds to change our brains to change our minds to... well, you get the picture. This is thanks to a phenomenon called "neuroplasticity." Neuroplasticity says that neurons that fire together wire together. Through the intentional development of new skills for choosing healthier thoughts and responses to life's challenges, we can actually change the structure of our brains. This gradual transformation of our neurology allows us to restructure our lives to eliminate needless suffering."

"I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, eating disorders, and addiction. These and other disorders often begin, in part, as coping mechanisms to deal with uncomfortable life experiences. Unfortunately, the more time spent engaging in them, the harder it is to stop, as neural pathways in the brain are being rewired, which will reinforce the behavior. What was once a coping mechanism now becomes a significant source of distress and actually impairs functioning in all areas of life. My approach to therapy is strongly influenced by Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), Psychodynamic Theory, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)"
