My Approach to Helping

I mainly use Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS),a psycho-spiritual approach that is the most non-judgmental, kind, gentle, and effective method I know. In IFS, no part of yourself is ever considered bad. Even though you may have been taught otherwise, you are healthy at your very core, and you can learn to access that core aspect of you. I am also trained in several trauma resolution methods. When dealing with grief, I can offer Repair and ReattachmentIADC Grief Therapy, as well as traditional grief therapy. Sessions can be done in my office or online.


More Info About My Practice

Sessions are strictly confidential, and I am currently doing them only online through a very secure, confidential portal. Therefore, illness and bad weather are not an issues. When seeking a psychotherapist, you will, of course, want someone who is qualified and highly ethical. These things are basic. Beyond this, you will want to know if the therapist has had success in working with your issue. Perhaps most importantly, you will look for a good "fit" between you and the therapist, someone you feel comfortable with and who will not judge you. I am happy to receive phone calls or emails with your questions or concerns.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Of course I have studied a great deal to obtain professional education, tools, and methods to help people. But in addition, because I have had so much life experience, I also relate to many people's issues. This means I am in no position to judge you, and I do not. It also means I have a certain understanding for what others are going through because of my own experiences.
