I specialize in working with adults who have experienced trauma of various kinds (illness, accidents, assault, loss) in childhood or adulthood. I have worked for many years with women and men who have experienced childhood sexual, physical or emotional abuse, or adult sexual assault. Recurring thoughts and images about the trauma, or less conscious feelings such as fear and worthlessness, or difficulties letting anyone get close, can persist, even if it happened long ago. My focus in therapy is to help you work through these experiences so they no longer prevent you from living more fully in your present life.

Many of us feel anxious and overwhelmed in our daily lives. Most of the time, we have the tools and support to effectively deal with our anxiety. However, there can be times when we have difficulty managing the stress on our own. Work, family, finances, health issues and other stress can trigger unresolved trauma from our past which often leads to heightened anxiety. Research shows that chronic stress negatively impacts our health and relationships. Whether your anxiety is caused by past traumatic experiences, or a recent life events, we can work together to improve your ability to cope and live a more peaceful life.

In therapy, we learn to see ourselves more clearly through identifying our strengths and weaknesses with more openess, curiousity, and less judgement. It's through this compassionate and conscious way of relating to ourselves that we can begin to make wiser decisions for ourselves and our relationships. In my 33 years of practice, I have worked with individuals, couples, families and groups. After working in a hospital system for many years, I'm very comfortable working with people with chronic illness, depression and loss. I've also been dedicated to helping women around body image issues and transitions.

It’s painful watching your child struggle. Of course you want to help them, but you’re not quite sure how. Your teen retreats to their room the moment they come home, you want to talk, but it seems they’ve completely shut you out. If you have a younger child, you may have noticed them being more clingy, throwing more tantrums, or having trouble sleeping. These changes in your child or teen seem to be worsening and now it’s reached a point where you may need additional help. While this feels overwhelming and draining for both you and your child, know that change is possible.
