Life's challenges can sometimes push our coping skills to the brink, and what used to work for us no longer does. Relief from psychological pain comes when we face feelings that we are avoiding and develop new ways of looking at our lives. I have worked successfully with adults experiencing difficult situations at work, in relationships, and in life transitions. Through our work together, I will help you challenge unhelpful beliefs and alleviate distressing emotions so that you can free yourself from suffering, regain hope, make better choices, and live a more authentic, satisfying life.

"My partner does not listen to me.” There are many, many other reasons that people seek help. Please know that you are not alone. I cannot say it enough: You are not alone!

There is nothing like being listened to and understood on a deep level, with genuine interest and acceptance. This is what I strive to offer in therapy or analysis, as we explore together your hopes and dreams, your losses and regrets, your longings and fears. Many people come to therapy to free themselves from self-defeating patterns and the legacy of past traumas, so they can be more truly themselves in relation to others and live with greater satisfaction and meaning. My analytic training enables me to work intensively, and I enjoy incorporating experiential techniques like journaling, psychodrama, and art.

It has been a privilege to provide home study, post placement and clinical services to families as they sought and sustained permanency for children through domestic and international adoption, foster and kinship care. This has increased my understanding around issues including attachment disruption, transracial adoption, behavior management, fertility, loss, grief, identify formation and school issues.

As a psychotherapist, I have been profoundly touched by survivors of trauma, particularly extreme trauma, ritual abuse, clergy abuse, spiritual abuse, mind control, and illness trauma. Trauma survivors started coming to me over 30 years ago. Though at first I had little understanding of what they had gone through, I recognized they were just normal people who had endured abnormal, extremely difficult situations. Those first few clients patiently persisted with me and taught me. I am humbled that they trusted me. As they shared their stories and hearts and we persevered, I learned more and more, and they got better and stronger.
