I am Certified in EMDR, with a strong interest in finding the right therapeutic approach to help individuals and couples become unstuck, find a sense of balance and well-being, and be able to enjoy life. EMDR is one of the powerful therapeutic tools I have to offer that allows people to work through issues in ways that surprise and free them. I work with adults and older adults coping with PTSD, depression and mood disorders, grief, loss, anxiety disorders, life changes and challenges, and relationship issues. These are treatable problems that can get better.

If you are struggling, with depression , anxiety, confusion, worry, hopelessness, lack of direction, or simply are looking to feel lighter, I intend to walk with you on your journey.
I am hoping to support individuals who would like to bring balance and fulfillment to their lives by exploring and integrating all parts (their higher and lower selves), reconnecting to the authentic self within. With the Pathwork, based on the work of Eva Pierrakos, my intention is to facilitate a self healing journey, supporting the embodiment of new awareness in order to move through life in a lighter, more natural way.  We will use dialogue, meditation, inner child/process work, with special attention to somatic experience.  With Intentional Peer Support, I offer support to parents of young adults experiencing psychosis.

For over 30 years I have grown and learned from those who are exploring identity issues, in transition, are living with depression or anxiety, grieving, at end of life, living with a life limiting illness, grappling with issues of aging and loss, and those seeking to deepen a connection to curiosity, joy, peace, and ease.
To be a compassionate companion in the process of healing is an honor I hold as sacred. Wherever you may find yourself on your journey, I will witness, listen, ask deep questions, and offer support without judgement. My goal is to hear your hearts calling and provide a safe space that allows you to remember and know who you are. I will support you to learn to understand your lived and embodied experience with a spacious sense of connectedness. Combining expressive and creative techniques with mindfulness-based practices, we will work together towards integration and wholenes based on your chosen goals.

Discovering the root causes of suffering, anxiety, and depression is difficult work. Using mindfulness techniques coupled with deep presence, I work with people to help create the life they would like to live. For over twenty years, I have honed my skills as an empathic listener. Without understanding, we find ourselves repeating patterns that are painful and unfulfilling. Using techniques from a variety of therapeutic models, I try to find the right approach for each person to come to a deeper understanding of themselves

Guidance is offered to people who are experiencing anxiety and depression , PTSD, family/partnership conflict, and other forms of "stuckness", to allow space for growth in a safe and supportive manner.
I embrace a very holistic approach to working with people, which encompasses exploring all aspects of our selves. Emotional, behavioral, biological/physical/medical, social, and spiritual factors all shape our experiences, and each provide opportunities and avenues for change when we desire that to happen.

Whether we realize it or not, we're all carrying around a bag: some of us carry a suitcase, others a backpack, and some push around a luggage cart or two overflowing with their bags. Why not downsize a bit? Therapy is all about you. Yes, you'll talk about other people, most likely. But it's not an hour about how they feel; it's an hour about how you feel. It's an hour to be completely open and honest about your life without judgement or interruption. And you deserve it.

We’ve all been stuck in a rut before. Sometimes we don’t even know how we ended up there. What we do know is that we find ourselves consistently frustrated with the same problems or the same people, having the same unproductive conversation or argument over and over again. It’s stressful and exhausting and sometimes it makes us want to give up. If you are longing to feel like "yourself" again, I can help you create space for shifts in the patterns that make you feel stuck. Most of the time, these patterns started off serving an important and positive purpose, but have likely outlasted their initial use.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
