My Approach to Helping

In our work you will begin to experience clarity, possibility and joy. I am a seasoned clinical pechotherapi & upervisor, and offer atachment-based, experiential supervision and psychotherapy which helps people clear out the clutter in their neural pathways, and uncover their tenderness and core strength. I received my MSW from Smith College and have been practicing psychotherapy, teaching and supervision in different combinations for many years. In early 2014, I earned certification in AEDP, the rubric within which lies all of my ways of connecting with people: moment-by-moment, and in a gently deepening and/or confrontational way. I also offer to guide you in body movements ( yoga & bioenergetics) to dissolve emotional blocks towards expression of trauma which is held somatically. I am internationally Certified in Bioenergetic Psychotherapy (CBT, 2004), and received Certification by the Institute of Meditation & Psychotherapy in 2011. You will notice healing both within each session, and after you leave in your every day passions & relationships. You will learn to feel grounded in body, mind and spirit, gain flow and articulation in un-doing patterns of 'stuckness' and feelings of chronic aloneness.
