More Info About My Practice

With analytical training, I learned about the unconscious mind and the early feelings, beliefs, and motivations that shape us as adults. Now I gravitate to newer approaches, those that tap the unconscious knowledge we hold in our bodies, as well as our minds. Hypnosis and Internal Family Systems are tools I use to uncover, transform and heal the wounded parts of ourselves.

My Role as a Therapist

I see my job as a facilitator of the therapy process. I listen, I ask questions, make observations, search for patterns and themes in what you tell me, and help you uncover your feelings. You are front and center, the focus of our attention. I rely on my intuition and training to guide me.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I was afraid to take any risk in my life, afraid to trust my gut, my intuition, to take that leap of faith into something I wanted but felt too unfamiliar, too far outside my comfort zone. Step by baby step, I help the people I see in psychotherapy to build their confidence and courage so that one day, they too will take that leap of faith.
