I believe that we come into this world whole and remain whole as we travel through our lives. Collectively and individually, however, we suffer trauma as the result of the human condition. We develop brilliant coping mechanisms for survival that, over time, become a hindrance to our continued evolution. I use a holistic treatment approach, that addresses the whole person (mind, body, soul and emotions). I view my work with clients through the lens of social justice. I am especially sensitive to how various societal oppression becomes internalized and impact our mental health and identity.

I have been in practice for over 35 years. I weave my Psychotherapy to suit the person that I am working with. Trained in numerous modalities, I respect and work with the psycho-socio-biological and spiritual parts of the person. Developing the therapeutic relationship and cultivating trust are primary in my work with my clients. Intuition, Perceptiveness and Energy Fields guide me as well. My strong interest with Trauma Work comes from my belief that we all have been traumatized in different ways. Being in the womb, leaving the womb and the birthing process are the beginnings of trauma.

Some clients are anxious to free themselves from nagging issues of the past, while others struggle to discern the best path for their future. I support couples who want to increase intimacy, and I help couples who have already decided to separate to do so as respectfully as possible.
