As social beings, we all yearn for connection and belonging and there are times when we need a helping hand to help us heal and learn from life's challenges. It takes courage to begin psychotherapy, and I will work collaboratively with you, so that you can discover how to shift limiting beliefs and obstacles that keep you from living a more fulfilling life. From this, you can improve relationships that matter and deepen your connection to yourself. Sometimes the stories you may be telling yourself, can be from the voice of a strong inner-critic, which often leads to a lack of self-acceptance. I know about this, and I can offer a wide variety of ways for you to explore this, helping you to see a clear path towards self-compassion and acceptance. It is possible to "come home" to yourself. As the great Carl Rogers said, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."

More Info About My Practice
I received my Masters in Psychology/Counseling after working as an Integrative healthcare practitioner for many years. Through this experience, I developed a deep understanding and appreciation of the body-mind connection. I believe that working with the body, mind and spirit as a system, cultivates deeper learning about yourself, leading you to create new ways of seeing, which can help you to engage life with more wholeness and joy.
I work with young adults, adults in the midst of mid-life changes and elders facing the unique challenges that each age group brings. I also work with couples, where I bring several years of experience facilitating personal growth and relationship workshops. It has been said that what is broken in relationship, is healed in relationship and I believe that self-discovery occurs while in relationship. The stakes are raised in relationship and it can be more challenging to speak and listen to each other. Unspoken misunderstandings and wishes can lead to resentments, distancing and isolation from one another. My work is strongly influenced by leading Couples Therapy models with proven success, which integrates current research on psychobiology (the brain-body connection) and attachment theory. Knowledge and a body-felt sense of this, can help couples to understand their dysfunctional patterns and move towards more healthy ways of being together.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Over the last several years, I have gathered a rich variety of skills to assist clients in "revisiting" rather than "reliving" traumas and stresses, which they have experienced over the years and may be facing today. As Peter Levine, trauma specialist says, "Trauma is a fact of life, but it doesn't have to be a life sentence." I can help you to return to a healthy state of mind, body and spirit.
I also bring my years of leading personal growth workshops, assisting individuals and couples, to create richer relationships with others and themselves. I have learned so much about myself while in relationship and dialogue with people that are important to me. It takes courage to be vulnerable and honest, and the learning that comes from this, is transformational.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
Previously, as a healthcare provider in both Integrative clinics and a large HMO, I noticed over the years, how patient's lifestyle and ways in which they perceived the world, influenced their health. I became drawn to the stories of their lives, and I noticed correlations between, those who had healthy relationships versus those who did not, with their physical and emotional symptoms. Eventually, I returned to school, and I am now a psychotherapist. Here, I hold a non-judgmental space with the client or clients, and together we can form a therapeutic relationship. This valuable alliance serves as a foundation where an individual or couple can transform the intellectual into experience, and knowledge into personal growth and insight.
