Practice Description: A lovely Irish proverb says: It is in the shelter of each other that people live. Together, we will make our counseling relationship a safe and warm shelter. I am passionate about the work I do, and believe in the healing properties a trusting, therapeutic relationship creates.

With a relaxed and nonjudgmental style, I will help you navigate difficult life challenges by teaching you to become more self-compassionate and less self-critical. You will learn new skills to handle distress and build healthier, more nurturing relationships. You will discover what is keeping you "stuck" in negative, counter-productive patterns, and will heal old wounds.

Every individual already possesses the wisdom he or she needs, as well as the innate capacity to love, to connect, and to thrive. I feel privileged to accompany my clients on their journeys of self discovery, healing,
and growth and look forward to accompanying you. I work with adults, adolescents and couples.

Counseling Expertise

With advanced training, sensitivity, and passion, I offer an interactive, mindfulness based, collaborative approach to therapy for couples and individuals.

~Specializing in~

Emotionally Focused Couples Counseling:

I have traveled the long and winding road of marriage for 40 years and fully understand the pitfalls and detours of committed relationships. With advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, I am dedicated to helping couples find their way back home. I will help you stop the dance of blame, distancing, and mutual hurt. We will focus on the negative cycle that has become your mutual enemy and learn to change the music to a new dance of closeness and connection.

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapies:

Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) are newer, third-wave therapies born from the union of cognitive therapy and meditative principles. These therapies provide powerful tools that can be successfully applied to depression, anxiety, addictions, rumination, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and more.

I have practiced mindfulness meditation and Metta (Compassion) meditation for over two decades and can personally attest to its benefits.

Schema Therapy:

Schema Therapy is a form of depth psychology that has shown remarkable results in helping clients change negative, (maladaptive) patterns which they have lived with for a long time, even when other methods and efforts they have tried have been unsuccessful.
