My approach to therapy uses Internal Family Systems, an insight-oriented therapy which is a powerful method for understanding conflict, trauma, and defenses, and for promoting healing, change, self-empowerment and self-compassion. I view the counseling process as a partnership and an opportunity for you to learn more about yourself. We will honor the patterns that have kept you safe in the past, while at the same time gently removing the barriers that have kept you from being the person you wish to be. I utilize EMDR in my work as well to address trauma that happened long ago, as well as any recent trauma.

I have explored the mind-body connection since 1980. I use healing and recovery models of therapy that respect my clients' strength and potential. I specialize in gentle and supportive methods of assisting clients to overcome the recurrent effects of trauma. I have advanced training and experience with mind/body modalities including EMDR to facilitate healing and foster posttraumatic growth. This generally involves helping a client learn to manage the recurrent symptoms of trauma and concurrently address and heal from the cause.

Safe and trusting relationships are the context in which we most often experience healing — especially when we have been wounded by others. I believe that earning and maintaining your trust is foundational for the counseling process. I seek to provide a compassionate, genuine, calm, and steady presence, so that you can feel safe and supported as you engage in the important and at times difficult work of therapy. I am most excited when my clients can see their own strengths and realize that they are capable of facing and releasing past wounds in order to grow and heal in ways that used to seem impossible.

As a Contemplative Psychotherapist and Coach, I offer my clients a unique blend of professional and spiritual experience. For 32 years I have been counseling individuals, families, and couples. My work is enriched by over four decades of engagement in Buddhist philosophy and practice. This background offers expertise in helping individuals and couples find authentic love, and parents more mindful and ethical parenting. I also coach many clients in how to use their wisdom and kindness to reach more 'enlightened' functioning. I do accept insurance clients, but currently have a waiting list of several months.

I approach therapy as a partnership between the client and myself. Using my training in mindfulness and compassion as well as twenty years of yoga practice, I take a supportive approach where we work together, in the here and now, towards greater self-acceptance and increased comfort in day-to-day existence. Although the work can be intense, it can also be immensely rewarding. I approach clients and their struggles with great respect and seek to find a pace of therapy that is helpful and effective without being overly stressful.

Through a holistic and integrative approach I support individuals and families to navigate the unique challenges that life has unfolded for them. Whether our work takes place in my office or out in nature, I help my clients identify, cultivate and nourish their strengths and resources. Through our work my clients deepen their connection to themselves, others and the natural world. As these connections grow I support my clients to uncover limiting patterns that inhibit their relationships, creativity and happiness so they can nourish new ways of moving and relating in the world that support authenticity, ease, and joy.

My style is interactive, behavioral, and usually short-term. I'm curious about where and how clients get stuck in running their lives, solving their own problems. I focus on helping clients break dysfunctional patterns, take acceptable risks, and approach problems in a more flexible way. There's homework and new behaviors to try during the week. I have written 13 books on couple & family therapy, anxiety, depression & anger, brief therapy, clinical supervision, as well as over 300 articles. I write an online column for Psychology Today entitled Fixing Families and have provided trainings nationally.

Clients coming to see me are generally in one of three categories: 1) People who are unhappy and know why. They have experienced loss, mistreatment, oppression, trauma, major illness, discrimination, or other experiences that they identify as the source of their distress. 2) People who are unhappy and don't know why. They may feel depressed, anxious, or dissatisfied with their lives and not know the reason. 3) People who feel okay but want to come to life more fully and feel even better.

I work with clients on a real, interactive, and engaged level. My hope is to work collaboratively with clients to meet them where they are as a safe support in their journey. We get to learn and evolve throughout our lives and being human is complicated! Our struggles teach us a great deal about both our strengths and weaknesses, but we are never the sum of our difficulties. I focus on healing centered engagement with trauma informed practices in pursuit of clients experiencing their lives in the meaningful way they prefer.
