I practice integrative psychotherapy, drawing from relational and attachment perspectives and EMDR. I work with adults who have experienced recent or childhood acute trauma. I am particularly interested in working with developmental trauma – especially ways that early relational patterns have informed the adults’ experiences of self-in-the-world. My focus includes non-verbal, emotional and/or embodied experiences and communications.
On a personal note, this is my second career. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in new product development in the beauty industry. The international focus of my work meant that I lived and worked in different parts of the world, giving me an understanding of the role of culture in self-experience.
I have had a private practice with adults in New York for 25 years. I am a graduate of the Parnell Institute for EMDR and am an EMDRIA certified therapist and approved consultant. I also have a certificate in psychoanalysis.
