About

Life's journey can be full of unexpected turns. Relationships can go awry. Parenting, aging, illness and loss, demands for work and career can be stressful. Do you find yourself repeating and reliving destructive patterns, feeling overwhelmed, not getting sufficient joy in your life? It is hard to find a way out alone. Talking with a counselor about issues that trouble us is inherently helpful, especially when combined with methods that create calm and develop awareness of your own sensory and emotional life. We can work together.
We will build on the strengths and resources you already have and through these new perspectives you will develop resilience an inner sense of compassion and creativity. Originally informed by psychoanalytic training my practice has grown and evolved over the past 30 years to include alternate modalities - cognitive re-framing and desensitization techniques
You will find me to be a discerning and empathic listener. I have benefited from direct experience working in school settings, infant and early childhood programs, mental health clinics, and with the elderly and holocaust survivors. In the aftermath of 9/11, I worked with various corporations helping people deal with the trauma from that event.
