The great challenge in our busy world is to stay connected with ourselves-with our bodily felt experience, our living wisdom, our sensitivity, and our depth  ~ John Welwood, Ph.D.

I help individuals and couples gain a fresh perspective, uncover new vitality and live more harmonious lives by becoming more authentically themselves, and inhabiting their lives more fully.  

Depending on your needs and goals, I offer both brief and long term therapy. In working together, clients often say that they feel more resilient, effective and enlivened.

My Approach 

I use a strength-based approach to help you draw upon your inner wisdom, self-compassion and creativity to widen your range of inner resources for desired change. Together, we tap into your curiosity, humor and strengths as key aspects of bringing about this change. 
Areas of Specialization

Trauma: I use leading-edge therapies that have been scientifically proven to effectively reduce, or resolve, the lingering effects of trauma such as anxiety, hypervigilance; numbing or poor self-esteem.

Career Boosts for Optimal Performance: brief therapies, such as EMDR, can help you overcome blocks to success. The focus of change can include: performance anxiety; procrastination; phobias and perfectionism.
