I love working with people, and getting to see the courage it takes for them to make the changes necessary to begin to feel better about themselves. I use a relational approach, both in my therapy relationships, and when I supervise, consult to or train therapists in the field of complex trauma and dissociation. While I have and continue to obtain advanced training in complex trauma and dissociative disorders as well as other therapy interventions, I truly believe that it is the relationship that heals, the sense of feeling and knowing the 'realness' of the other. I very much enjoy my job and getting to know and understand people who are working toward healing.

More Info About My Practice
Please feel free to connect to my website for more information on my philosophy, training, experience, current workshops, fees, and general office policies and information. I have started providing more trainings and consultation services and thus an offering fewer clinical spots, but I do supervise a number of skilled clinicians in my clinic, Changing Tides Child and Family Enrichment Center, which you can take a look at here:
The book I co-authored with PeggyEllen Kleinleader, "The Thursday Group: A story and information for girls healing from sexual abuse". You can see our blogspot at
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I work best with people who have had diagnoses of borderline personality disorder, substance abuse, and complex PTSD. My passion is in working with people who have had early childhood and lifelong experiences of extreme abuse including attachment injuries, neglect, physical and sexual abuse, particularly within the family unit.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is terrifying. Who wants to look at and acknowledge the pain and horrors of a past they have forgotten, denied, minimized or hidden from themselves and others? And yet, this work allows each of us the opportunity to grow and to expand into the best versions of ourselves. I believe it is my role to journey alongside you, not to do the work for you or allow you to ignore the work that is needed. I will walk with you so that you can feel less isolated and alone.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
People who have experienced complex developmental trauma, interpersonal trauma, and attachment trauma tend to distrust the world, even those people who are the closest to them. I feel especially honored when I am permitted into the inner circle of a person's emerging ability to trust others, when they share with me, and when they reach out to me for help.
