About

Our unique histories, family dynamics, inherited beliefs, and learned social roles compound to create rich personalities, but can also create subtle barriers to growth. I believe that the most effective way to heal old wounds and develop new strengths is in relationship to other people, and have faith in the potential for the therapeutic relationship to be a vehicle for deep insight and transformation. I work with adults and adolescents with histories of trauma, who are facing major life transitions, struggling with anxiety and depression, who are dealing with relationship discord or who want to explore their full potential.
I have substantial experience working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I practice Exposure and Response Prevention (E/RP), the gold standard treatment for OCD. I take expert care in helping my clients understand their OCD and overcome their most debilitating fears and anxieties.
In session, I emphasize attuning to the mind-body connection, habituating to feelings of vulnerability and integrating disparate “parts” of the psyche to guide clients towards living more conscious and intentional lives.
