My Approach to Helping

Hi I am a Psychotherapist and DanceMovement Therapist. My approach to therapy is integrated, understanding the person from a psychological, emotional and somatic perspective. Starting therapy to address your anxieties, whether in your body, your mind or your family situation, is often like deciding to allow someone else to enter your world, a world you have kept private, a world you sometimes struggle to make sense of.

More Info About My Practice

I am a psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience and extensive post graduate training in the areas of child, couple and family therapy. After you read a little about me, and if you decide to contact me, I am available to set up a free initial twenty minutes phone consultation, so we can get acquainted with each other; you can ask me questions you have, and we can decide together if we are a good fit to proceed to an in person session.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I was originally trained as a child, group and dancemovement therapist. Over the years I have continued my studies and accrued experience in these areas, to include in depth individual therapy, couples and family therapy. I have worked with families in crisis due to losses, mental illness, couples who experienced infidelity, poor communication, unsatisfactory relationships and history of alcohol abuse, women dealing with childhood sexual abuse, prenatal and post partum depression, poor selfbody image, food issues in adults and children, children on the Autism Spectrum or experiencing anxiety and adjustment problems, parenting issues.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a dialogue between you and your therapist; through the moment to moment interaction you are encouraged to speak freely and begin to access parts of yourself that were unknown to you and yet were causing anxiety in your mind and body. As you get to know yourself more and honor your own authenticity, you become aligned with your true self; it's as if a new life opens up in front of you. What felt like being stuck becomes a road with new possibilities.
