Practice Information:
Are your relationships troubled and disappointing? Do your fears and worries get in the way of your being your most creative, productive self? Do you sometimes find yourself in the same situations or repeating behaviors over and over, and you don't know how to find your way out? Habitual ways of reacting and behaving often began as the means of coping with the stresses of childhood, but are no longer useful or appropriate. I would like to help you become "unstuck", become less anxious and worried, feel more comfortable with yourself and happier with your relationships and work.

In sessions, I work to listen deeply and create an accepting atmosphere. There, you can become curious about your thoughts, feelings and actions, explore how your past is influencing your life today and confront the repeating patterns of emotional reaction and behavior that get in the way of your finding satisfaction in your relationships and work.

My approach to therapy is eclectic with a strong psychodynamic base for understanding the problems that bring people to seek help. In addition to my training in psychology, my early training was as a dance/movement therapist and I continue to have an interest in the connection between mind, body and emotions and the nonverbal aspects of communication and relating.
I have over 25 years of experience as a psychotherapist in a wide variety of clinical settings and private practice. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults, giving me an appreciation of early experience on adult experience, behavior and functioning. My experience in hospitals and clinics includes work with children, adolescents and adults with developmental disorders, acute and chronic emotional illness, individuals with seizures and epilepsy and individuals with a history of early trauma (child abuse).
