Practice Description: “I offer compassionate understanding and support in a safe and comfortable environment. I have successfully helped many people find relief through anxiety treatment, depression counseling and relationship therapy. By incorporating body, mind and spirit in a practical approach to growth and change, obstacles and challenges become opportunities for growth and fulfillment, while confusion and emotional pain can grow into clarity and wisdom. As we learn to see things without distortions and judgements, anger is transformed into compassion. Fear dissolves into acceptance, allowing us to be fully present and alive to experience joy and happiness.

I utilize an experiential mix of styles including Cognitive Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Family Systems theories, blended with mindfulness practice. This process gently but effectively expands your capacity to enjoy life, and removes hidden beliefs and old traumas that keep you from living as a free human being.

I bring to my work years of meditation and spiritual practice as well as my formal education in Clinical and Counseling Psychology. In addition, I am associated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) as an Educator, helping families and health care providers struggling with psychiatric illness.”
