One of the greatest issues that people face in their lifetime is how to cope with death and loss due to divorce, chronic health issues, and any major life transitions. Unfortunately, all too often people just try to move on, doing their individual best to "be strong" and keep going as they did before. Your feelings of grief and loss can be more than you can bear. I offer a supportive and nurturing environment so you can understand those feelings, allow them to be expressed in a safe manner, and help you adapt to the realities of your changed life.

My first priority as your therapist is to provide an environment in which you can speak freely about your concerns while I listen and reflect back to you in a non-judgemental and compassionate way. You may need new coping skills, new perspectives or a way to heal beyond old difficulties that remain unresolved. I will help you clarify what your intentions are and help you to be more compassionate with yourself during the process. One of the goals is to be more content and more at peace with yourself and in your relationships with others.

I have been a licensed psychotherapist for twenty plus years. In the past ten years, I have been certified in Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, EMDR, and use Comprehensive Resource Model, Internal Family Systems, Energy Medicine, and Emotional Freedom Technique. Integrating these modalities has been life changing for my clients when healing from trauma, depression, and anxiety. We all have experiences in our past that have created coping mechanisms that can now prevent us from having the relationships, success, joy and happiness that we are meant to experience.

***ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I believe that there is no "single" treatment that works best for everyone. I have found that the most effective therapy is when it is tailored to the unique needs of each client. We will spend time becoming acquainted with one another and arriving at a shared understanding of your treatment goals. My practice focuses on creating space in which transformation is possible and old patterns can shift into something that allows for growth and possibility. We will work on the issues that you bring to the table, and together, we will carve out a road map that will help lead you to a more authentic self.

SORRY ! I AM NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME! It is crucial to try to create a safe place for clients to heal. Within that sacred place, clients can discover their authentic selves. I meet clients where they are in life and utilize a variety of therapeutic methods to help shift old patterns that are ready to be let go of. I utilize psychodynamic techniques as well as mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy to help clients develop awareness and self-compassion. I also draw on body oriented techniques and expressive art therapy modalities which can effectively move energy that is stuck. I have trained in IFS as well.

In reality, every therapy relationship is different. Some people just want to be heard, a place to unload from their dealings with life. Others want more active guidance to grow to the next level or to reduce suffering. I am pragmatic and try to meet each person's specific needs. That may mean simply creating a time and place to decompress; working on practical solutions to life problems; or looking within at the imbalances - anxiety, depression, addiction - that create unhappiness. I am expert in meditation and related spiritual practices that heal inner conflict and restore peace.

People often ask me, "What is the purpose of therapy?" I believe there are a few answers to that question. First, you come to therapy to defrost grief, unexpressed rage and other negative feelings, e.g. traumas, losses, betrayals. You also learn to re-parent yourself. Second, you come to have a better transition in your work or love life, or to improve your performance and personal relations. Finally, you get to share your dreams and goals in a safe environment, with no judgment, and to produce amazing action plans to manifest your best life ever.
