I have over 25 years of experience working as a psychotherapist in the field of Mental Health. I have been trained in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis on exploring the conscious and unconscious influences that affect how you deal to stress, relationships, loss, and life transitions.

During my clinical training I also focused on Somatic Studies, which explores how the mind and the body are intertwined, and paying attention to how the body expresses itself is as important as what is being said, verbally. Therefore, my approach is to assist you in achieving greater insight into how your thinking, feelings and behavior affect your situation, and also how your body is reacting and responding to the challenges you are facing.

By gaining greater awareness in this way, you will be able to influence the stress and issue you are facing with more adaptive and compassionate coping skills. I have a diverse background of clinical experience, having worked in outpatient clinics, hospitals, residential programs, and schools. I am knowledgeable about and have worked extensively with grief and loss, depression, anxiety, relationship and parenting issues, stress management and chronic pain.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Many times I have encountered people who see themselves as "less than" or somehow weak because they are coming to therapy. Then, as folks keep coming back and seeing change happen and realize they are learning something about themselves that is valuable and helpful to them, they often change the initial point of view to something like "I'm so glad I talked about that." "I feel better." They see that we are not well wired to figure out all of our problems on our own, and having someone who has experience talking with many people over time in a confidential, therapeutic setting can be extremely helpful.

Changing a behavior, mourning a loss, or dealing with stress and negative feelings is often difficult, initially, on one's own. Though friends and family can be a great source of support, it is common for people to not talk openly about their experiences for fear of being a burden or feeling embarrassed. It takes courage to go to therapy and talk intimately about oneself and make attempts to change.
