Welcome to my profile. Finding the "RIGHT" therapist can feel like a real challenge for most people. I am a Holistic Psychotherapist in private practice since 1986. My healing approach is dependent on the needs of each individual client. The areas of special interest to me are spirituality, relationship and self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, addictions and co-dependency, loss and grief, trauma, dissociation, (not necessarily in that order). I also offer group therapy, and have facilitated groups dealing with the aging process, self esteem/relationship issues, co-dependency, spirituality, grief/loss, and depression.

The work I do involving sexuality and spirituality is done with an identical sensitivity to the intimate nature of the issues involved.
I look forward to working with you on making and taking the choices and actions that move you towards building a life filled with meaning based on your values and goals. The struggles we all face, large and small, are part of what define our humanity - be it anxiety, trauma, or confusion. It is the compassion and willingness for intimacy we show to ourselves and others that defines much of the rest. I enjoy working with my clients as they go through the process of defining who and what they want to be and then help them go about achieving it.

“Before you assist others, put your oxygen mask on first." Prioritizing your wellness is essential. Perhaps you feel pulled in a million directions or you have suffered a loss. Perhaps you are stuck in an unhealthy relationship or you constantly compare yourself to others. Breaking unhealthy cycles of thought can be life-changing, and that is what we will strive to do together.
