My Approach to Helping

I believe (as data confirms) that the most important aspect of any helping relationship is the relationship.
I find that understanding how the brain works and sharing that with clients is empowering no matter what specific theory or approach is the best fit for a client. Currently much of this information comes from the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology and Mindfulness.
As a teacher in a graduate level program for other therapist, as well as a supervisor with an ongoing mindfulness based group with my peers, I both teach and incorporate the belief that all transitions are a collaborative process.
I am grateful to be part of a profession that is its self in such transition of inclusion to so many ways of knowing. It makes me smile on a daily basis. I am glad to share this energizing curiosity with anyone who is seeking help with feeling stuck, angry, fearful or lost.

More Info About My Practice

While I am on some insurance panels, I find working with profit based insurance companies more and more difficult. Again, I find even working with these companies is often a collaborative process with my client's involvement. I feel that mental health and happiness is a right and support universal health care. With this in mind, I also have a sliding scale fee for those who can't afford insurance. I also work with a number of people who don't use their insurance, and prefer to pay our of pocket.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Self-knowledge is power, it facilitates connection (internal as well as with others) improves contentment and raises compassion. The process of working with a good therapist has the ability to enhance both. These endeavors take courage, strength and curiosity.

Groups I Work With

    I work well with men and women who are in transitions in their lives. Specific focus on level of integration from past present, as well as disconnect between body and mind. Also those who are interested in reduced use or moving off of, medications when possible. Due to the dual training in being a psychotherapist and a professional teacher, levels of intervention are both geared to where the client is emotionally as well as how they process information intellectually.
