My Approach to Helping

As human beings, we often have a vision of what is possible for our lives but at times may find that we are self-sabotaging or getting in our own way. I'm here to help you uncover and remove the blockages that prevent you from embracing your full potential; from stepping into the relationship, career or sense of purpose that you most deeply desire. Incorporating mindfulness techniques, harnessing the mind-body connection, and employing Attachment Focused EMDR when appropriate we will work together to undo the patterns that cut you off from the opportunities of life, from others, and from your own sense of power and aliveness.

In my work with couples, I employ Dr. Sue Johnson's empirically validated Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy approach which helps shift couples from painful states of conflict and avoidance into secure patterns of attachment that allow for a renewed and lasting sense of intimacy, joy and mutual support.

As a former producer on some of the biggest primetime shows at NBC and Fox, my psychotherapy is grounded in real world experience. I know what it takes to succeed in highly competitive industries without sacrificing those other parts of life that keep us grounded and happy; from friendships and family to time for exercise, reflection and personal growth.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I feel incredibly grateful to have found a role that allows me to contribute to others while infusing my own life with great meaning and purpose. For me, it is the ultimate privilege to accompany another person on their journey toward becoming the complete human being they were born to be.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

People are often worried that therapy simply involves talking in circles week after week. This is a legitimate concern as all the studies show that we do not achieve change through insight alone. Rather, we transform through emotionally corrective experiences; we shift when our deepest emotional lives are held with attunement, care and compassion. These are integrative experiences for the brain and as neuroscience shows, neural integration translates into ever greater capacities for resilience, relationality and affect regulation; the basic building blocks of a happy and fulfilling life.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

My first experience of psychotherapy was in my early 30s and it was a major revelation. The apparently simple process of sharing difficult, previously untold experiences with a deeply compassionate listener was unbelievably cathartic. As I learned to make space for my emotions and tune into my bodily sensations I rediscovered a long-lost inner compass. Where before there had been a gnawing sense of emptiness and resignation, I now felt hope coursing through me. No longer simply blown about by the winds of life, I began taking conscious decisions to determine my own future. Having gained so much from my own psychotherapy, I found myself wanting to support others on their path of growth, empowerment, and engagement with life in whole-hearted ways.
