I work with children, adolescents, and adults in individual, couple and family therapy addressing the myriad issues that arise during the course of the human life cycle. It is my intention to help bring healing on deep levels to each client who enters my practice. I bring a mature, experienced perspective to my work, integrating years of my own personal work and professional training. I view each person with whom I have the privilege to work as an emotional, physical and spiritual being and use client centered humanistic, transpersonal approaches, combined with a psychodynamic lens.
I am certified as a Certified Sandplay Therapist. This modality allows the client to access depths not normally available in “talk therapy”. I am trained in and utilize the powerful technique of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Attachment Based EMDR to move more quickly through trauma. I have been in private practice for twenty six years and am inspired and enlivened daily by my contact with the wonderful clients who enter my door!
