For over 20 years, I have been working collaboratively with clients to heal from painful past experiences, and to set and achieve future goals. This often includes addressing family, career, and relationship issues within the treatment,  as well as recognizing patterns of thinking and/or behavior which may be holding you back. 

I'm trained to guide you to find ways to listen to your unconscious processes. I integrate relational psychodynamic psychotherapy, Authentic Movement, somatic psychoanalysis, Family dynamics and mindfulness-based therapies.

Together we will determine which approaches work best for you, and create a treatment plan to enhance your sense of well-being, and to empower you to achieve your life goals.
