The psychotherapy work we do together is pivotal to deep emotional and interpersonal healing, and helps people uncover their tenderness and their core strength. I received my MSW from Smith College and have been a practicing psychotherapist for 30 years. In early 2014, I earned certification in AEDP. AEDP is the rubric within which lies all of my ways of connecting with people: moment-by-moment, and in a gently deepening way. Our work clears out and transforms the brain's neural pathways from clutter and pain towards accelerated neuro-plasticity. I also offer to guide work with your body to dissolve emotional blocks and allow expression of trauma held somatically. You will begin to experience clarity, possibility and joy. I have also been internationally Certified in Bioenergetic Psychotherapy (CBT, 2004), and received Certification by the Institute of Meditation & Psychotherapy in 2011. You will notice healing both within each session, and after you leave in your every day passions & relationships. You will learn to feel grounded in body, mind and spirit, gain flow and articulation in un-doing patterns of 'stuckness' and chronic aloneness.
