I am a psychologist experienced in helping children, teens and adults. My experiences in the mental health field began in 1981 and include working with the seriously mentally ill, treating traumatized children, and working with the oppressed. These experiences have taught me the importance of maintaining compassion for others even when they are in extreme states or are easily wounded. Working with different cultures has taught me to respect the world view and values of others. My background helps me to understand struggles of all types with a greater depth and sensitivity. All problems, worries and concerns are significant and deserving of a serious approach.

I enjoy working with individuals, families, and couples strengthening self-reliance, self-awareness, familial as well as relational bonds. During these times, therapy has its challenges and can be quite confusing. This is especially true for younger children. Through the use of telehealth, I do what I can to make therapy a comfortable experience.

“Any worthwhile conversation starts with listening”. We all benefit from feeling heard. As a clinician, I am able to hold space for clients to process all that they think, feel and have experienced. I help my clients rethink and reframe stories that no longer serve them of how they fit in and move through the world. Some of us are lucky to have friends and family that can support us in this way, but at times we may find ourselves needing more. Having someone who can listen to you free of judgment and provide positive support can be a game changer!

After over 40 years of practicing psychotherapy, I've learned that the quality of the relationship between therapist and client is an incredibly powerful catalyst for personal growth and healing. The core of this unique bond is trust. I focus on building trust through repeated experiences of empathy, heartfelt responses, helpful insights, shared humor, and a readiness to admit and repair mistakes. As the foundation of safety takes hold, we explore the issues that brought you into therapy. We can explore the traumas of the past that deeply disturb your sense of well-being.

Sometimes negative thinking, anxious thoughts, unhealthy relationship patterns, previous traumas, (or something else) holds us back from reaching our true potential. It's during these times, that it's difficult to see your value and the strengths you bring to yourself and others. It doesn't have to stay this way. Therapy is an opportunity to work with someone to get the life and relationships you have always wanted - and to feel good again.

***Please note: I'm not on insurance panels, but accept clients utilizing out-of-network benefits*** One of the most challenging, frightening, and rewarding endeavors any person can do is to decide that things need to be different. How that needs to look may involve both expected and unanticipated barriers, feel overwhelming, lead to questions about personal meaning and purpose, or trigger what feels unresolved. We may not figure out all the answers and solutions together, but you don't have to move through it alone. My hope is to help you emerge more empowered, heard, supported, resilient, and clear about what you need.

I am honored to do the work of holding space for individuals and families as they process through past and ongoing traumatic and distressing experiences. Integrating Trauma and Attachment-Focused Therapies, Play and Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Existentialism, and Psycho-education, I assist clients in healing and growing from what they have experienced in life. We are incredibly resilient and the strength within us sometimes needs a little guidance when we find ourselves in the dark. We will likely look at communication issues, attachment, choosing more effective coping strategies, and finding new ways to make life full and meaningful.
