My Approach to Helping
It Does Not Have To Be This Way!
Hello! I am a licensed somatic clinical psychologist. For over twenty years, I have worked with people of all ages and levels of psychological distress. While I am trained in traditional talk therapy techniques such as depth and cognitive psychotherapy, I have found that lasting change is only achieved through addressing physical blocks in your body which keeps you locked into your unhealthy thought and behavior patterns. Working with me means learning how to feel, acknowledge, and express these self-imposed physical restrictions on your health and happiness and to release them slowly in a safe, supportive environment. In this way, any person can recover from even extreme levels of distress such psychosis, chronic anxiety, depression, and addiction. My goal for you is to help you learn how to regulate your own life without fear, without medications(if you want), and eventually without me. Call me for more information!
More Info About My Practice
I work with adults, couples, children, and whole families. I have extensive experience working with all levels of psychological distress, including chronic anxiety, depression, addiction, physical and sexual abuse, eating disorders, psychosis and schizophrenia.
I am trained in psychoanalytic therapy, depth psychotherapy, play and sandtray therapy.
In addition to my traditional therapeutic training, one of my most unique offerings is my training in somatic(body-oriented) therapy. Physical constrictions in your body block access to deeper emotions, keeping them out of reach, causing anxiety, depression, and even psychosis. By learning how to release these physical blocks, therapy can progress much more quickly and safely than just talk therapy and/or medication.
In our initial meeting, we will first discuss your specific goals for therapy. Then, together, we will create a therapeutic plan, tailored to your needs, outlining the best way to work towards helping you achieve those goals.
I look forward to hearing from you!
