My Approach

I tailor my approach to the needs of each individual client. My training is in psychodynamic psychotherapy, which helps me to grasp the impact of your life's experiences and their impact on your way of being in the world, your relationship to yourself and others. My additional training includes work with mindfulness, Buddhist psychology, attachment theory and somatic-based therapies which help me frame for you how you interact with your feelings, beliefs, assumptions and choices. My interpersonal style is active, engaged, honest and humorous. Most of my clients report feeling deeply supported and challenged in their work with me.

My Background

I became a psychotherapist because I love the life journey, despite how harrowing, joyous and confusing it feels at times. A lifelong seeker of health and resilience, I first pursued my own growth work (and continue to) and then entered social work to develop reliable skills to help others find health, choice and possibility. I have been licensed and in practice since 2000. My additional training has been in grief and loss work, sensorimotor/somatic psychotherapy and in parenting education. My specialties include grief and loss work for people facing loss of loved ones to death or life changes, illness in themselves or recovering from life in dysfunctional families. I specialize in working with teens facing illness in themselves or their families and/or loss. My additional specialty is in parenting education and consultation, helping parents raise emotionally healthy and well behaved children who are responsible to themselves, their families and their communities.
