********Not accepting new clients currently******** I believe that a genuine therapeutic relationship can serve as a foundation for immense personal growth and change. Whether you're struggling with mental health or are curious about self-exploration I offer a therapeutic practice that is based on sincerity, compassion, and 10+ years of diverse clinical experience. I enjoy working with a broad spectrum of mental health challenges, and incorporate various theoretical models into my practice.
Overcome anxiety, depression, addictions, relational or other behavioral patterns that make it difficult to cope with life and create low self esteem or conflict. Recover your true self.
My practice is tailored to respect each individual's needs in therapy. In our work together we will use mind-body and expressive arts therapies, particularly Dance/Movement Therapy, to build on your strengths and develop effective life skills. Dance/Movement Therapy is the use of dance and other forms of body movement in psychotherapy to further healing and growth by stimulating insight into and changes in thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
My clients find validation in having a provider who understands and acknowledges the difficulties that arise from experiencing marginalization. I have been in the field for over 20 years and have found that my skills are most effective in working with people who hold marginalized identities as well as community activists. With our rapidly changing and shifting world it is important to have a provider that acknowledges the times we are living in to support those of us most affected by these changes. Many of us are struggling to navigate the vast changes in the world around us in addition to typical day to day concerns.
I believe that successful counseling begins with forming trust and a strong therapeutic relationship. From this place of connection and understanding, we'll work together to explore what's holding you back from living a life that feels full and meaningful. I enjoy working with all ages on finding strategies and solutions for better self care and management.
Welcome! I believe that it is possible for you to find emotional balance, wherever you are in your journey. Your needs and emotional well being will be the guiding force in our work together, whether you are negotiating challenging situational stressors, or wanting to understanding persistent sadness that seems to have no source. Maybe you are feeling stuck, grieving, dealing with addiction, or feeling disconnected. Together we can work toward putting you in the driver's seat of your own life.
LEAVE AN EMAIL IN ADDITION TO A PHONE. NOTE MY RETURN PHONE CALL WILL COME UP AS PRIVATE, ANONYMOUS, OR UNLISTED. I help people overcome their addictions, manage anger, depression, and anxiety, and cope with trauma. I offer guidance to those who have family addicted to drugs or alcohol. I am dedicated to improving quality of life for people. I routinely go far above and beyond expectations. I am respectful but very direct and straightforward.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with nearly two decades of experience with teens. I am embarking on a new phase of my practice in which I work with teens outside, using hands-on projects as a conduit for building confidence, emotional intelligence, and self-awareness. I typically work with clients on particular outdoor projects for 1-3 hours at a time. I don't deploy a single therapeutic technique. Rather, I blend the best parts of many different approaches. Historically, my teenage clients have found me approachable, trustworthy, and enjoyable to work with.
We could all benefit from support at times. Someone who is willing to listen. Someone to provide an outside perspective. We can work together to help you stay connected to your positive parenting skills, your need to find calm or perhaps work through a past trauma. You may be at the beginning of a journey, in the middle or further along. Wherever you are, connect with someone who provides encouragement and perspective. Children and families are welcome! We live in an ever changing world. Let's do something to help strengthen our foundation...for life!
Life is a daring adventure... with a lot of pitfalls and crash landings. Sometimes you need help to get out, over and/or through. I provide psychotherapy with respect, compassion, and a sense of humor to guide and walk alongside you. I focus on skill-building and helping you become the hero of your own life, sometimes combining counseling with hypnotherapy, sometimes hypnotherapy on its own. I follow the Intentional Peer Support philosophy: there is nothing wrong with you; and you are the expert on your own life. EMAILing me is the first step, as phone calls are difficult to return with my daily schedule.
My ideal client would be someone who wants to grow, is willing to touch his or her own pain and at his/her own pace is willing to change. We all come with our own “story”. I do believe that through personal growth we can change it - understanding that it is only a story. We are the main actor and editor of ourself and this story that is being called ”my life”. Through therapy we can learn how to take ownership and responsibility and replace it with a more satisfying and successful version of ourselves
I have experience with a diversity of issues including anxiety, depression and relationship concerns. I am a trained depth psychotherapist (Jungian-oriented), and am concerned with addressing symptoms at their root cause. I balance this approach by offering avenues of relief from symptoms in the present. Easing the burden of suffering in the here-and-now allows us to engage more fully with the work of addressing original causes, and thereby contributes to long-term resolution.

I believe that good therapy starts with a strong therapeutic relationship. From this place of connection, empathy, and understanding, we’ll work together to explore what’s holding you back from living a life that feels full and meaningful.

My approach to therapy is integrative and recognizes the importance of mind, body, and spirit.

Depression, anxiety, and despair invite us to seek out deeper connections and growth. The intimacy that develops in the therapeutic relationship is different from what passes for communication in most peoples' daily lives. In the I and Thou, of genuine therapy, there is no barrier. The goal is to be able to totally see and to be seen. Pretense, persona, the need to impress, many aspects of false perception all fall away. There are no barriers. It is a way of healing soul sickness that is challenging to both therapist and patient while at the same time being effective and fulfilling. Join me for an initial exploratory meeting.
Having a safe, nonjudgmental space, to be yourself, and to reflect, discuss, and learn about your reactions, decisions, and challenges can lead to improved well-being. My psychotherapy practice creates that space in a hopeful, compassionate atmosphere. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process. Between your counseling sessions, you are encouraged to reflect and put new skills and insights into practice. I can weave traditional psychotherapy with mindfulness practices to relieve symptoms, promote self-care, make intentional decisions, and grow. Please email me and I'll be able to answer more quickly.
Sometimes, the things that we think of as our "shortcomings" or "flaws" are actually just a product of modern day society, where we are often told how we should behave, think, and feel from moment to moment. My goal is to help you discover your true needs, desires, and feelings, and distinguish them from those imposed onto you by external pressures. I strive to create a supportive therapeutic space for all teenagers and adults regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, class, ability status and age.
I assist and support individuals and couples to live from the deepest places, to make meaning in their lives, and to improve functioning within self, and between self and others. I offer possibility.
I have been in the private practice of psychotherapy since 1977. Clients sometimes come to me when therapy with other therapists has not worked. I am willing to go as deeply as you are within the safety of clear ethical boundaries.
I value difference and work to hold and accept and work with differences, whether they be personal, sexual, racial or cultural.
Are you interested in gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and exploring ideas about your life purpose, career, or relationship issues? Do you need help developing strategies to manage stress, or in processing issues of health, grief, conflict, parenting or life transitions? Want to try something new? One on one sessions in multimodal expressive arts; visual art, writing, storytelling, movement, music and/or drama, are transformational. The arts can help you explore your personal development, quiet your mind and be present in the moment. Some clients use this as a compliment to, or alternative to, traditional talk therapy.
