I specialize in treating trauma, anxiety and self-esteem issues. In addition to being certified in EMDR, I am trained in mindfulness-based therapies, including yoga and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. Prior to making the shift into psychotherapy, I was a professor of film and literature and a certified yoga teacher. My therapeutic approach is rooted in the belief that our lives are as rich as the characters and narratives that we find in books and movies. Stress, anxiety, depression and trauma tend to mask our awareness of this richness. Yet, it is the struggles themselves that help us to change and grow. Understanding this paradox is one way to find meaning and purpose in life. My clients benefit from slowing down, tuning in to their inner wisdom, and finding solutions to the stress, emotional pain, or emptiness they experience. My approach is holistic and integrative to help identify recurring patterns, heal traumas, and make positive changes in your life and in relationships.
