My roots as a therapist and healer have seeded over the past thirty-five years, bringing substance and depth to my one-on-one sessions with couples and individuals. During this time, I have maintained a private practice, which has always consisted of process-oriented consciousness work -- a means by which to enter safely and deeply into the inner landscape of the psyche for positive and real world change. My results-oriented approach to psychology is derived from the commitment to a conscious process and the intrapsychic relationship one can access when choosing to turn toward--and look at--oneself.

I know that finding the right therapist can be an overwhelming process. In my practice, I attempt to create a safe, nurturing space where we can actively engage in the process of self discovery together. I am passionate about this work and believe that it does lead to lasting change. I have experience with creative professionals and understand the ups and downs of being an industry professional. During these uncertain times, I have found that tele health offers an unexpected bonus. It seems to provide opportunities to take risks that may not feel as safe when we are face to face. I look forward to our journey together.

Self-acceptance, body positivity; the messages are great in theory. But try as you may, you can't seem to live them yourself. It's painful to feel uncomfortable in your own body; the shame, guilt, and hiding's wearing on you. It's painful to feel not enough, thinking, "If only I could look a certain way, then I'll be seen and loved." Starving, binging, or purging to feel a sense of safety- because you're unable to express your real feelings and needs. You're hurt; looking for acceptance in the wrong places from the wrong people. Secretly thinking “I can’t get out from this vicious cycle of negative relationships, food, & body image.

Are you a child, adolescent or adult having difficulty functioning at work, school, or in relationships? Sometimes a history of trauma, self defeating and limiting belief systems interfere with our ability to love, work and play. I can help when old ways of adapting to stressors no longer work. Change is necessary at the mind, body and spiritual level for adaptation to occur. We will work together through your transformation. You can learn new ways to tolerate what has been overwhelming and you can develop new, healthier coping skills to help you manage what was formerly intolerable about daily living.
