I help people overcome whatever is holding them back from leading highly successful lives full of positive, loving relationships.

If you are currently suffering from depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, or addiction, or are just having difficulty adjusting to a new phase or relationship in your life, I have a wide array of extremely effective ways to help alleviate your problems.

Je propose également des séances de thérapie en Français. N'hésitez pas à me contacter pour prendre rendez-vous.
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1988 and then a Master of Arts degree in Philosophy from the University of Connecticut in 1989. After two years of working in New York City, I moved to Paris to study art, literature, film, and music.

While exploring Asia in 1994, I became interested in Buddhism, yoga, and meditation – all of which led to taking a second Master of Arts degree in Religious Studies from UCSB where I concentrated on the histories of yoga and mindfulness.

After many more years of studying with myriad teachers, I decided to complete my academic education with a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University concentrating on Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Transpersonal Psychology, Carl Jung and the most recent healing modalities.
