Practice Description:
Due to the current pandemic restrictions, I am currently only offering telehealth sessions via phone and various video platforms.

I believe that people have an innate capacity to heal and change. Access to this healing is sometimes blocked by negative and destructive patterns that are formed when there is a need to adapt and survive difficult, traumatic or overwhelming experiences. In a collaborative, empathic, and safe atmosphere, I facilitate people's connections to their own resources and foster the creation of a compassionate self that is free to make mindful choices and unhook old patterns. Through psychodynamic, humanistic and somatically oriented approaches, I help people find new insights and awareness, build resiliency and create pathways to greater fulfillment.

I work with people on issues related to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, addictions, grief, and life stress. I have extensive experience with developmental trauma, sexual trauma, 9/11 trauma, and single event trauma. I offer additional expertise in the areas of relationships, sexual orientation, and gender identity. I am a trauma specialist, trained in Somatic Experiencing and certified in EMDR.

In the area of adoption, I work with all members of adoption triads: adoptees, adoptive parents and birth parents. I offer a place to explore the experience and meaning of adoption, whether with parents at the beginning of the adoption process or with adjustment as a child grows up, or with adoptees as they explore their own identity, or with birth mothers as they decided to place a child for adoption.

I welcome new clients as well as those who are looking for new approaches to old problems.
