About My Clients

I’ve heard clients say…… “I’d like to be truly happy – not just get by” "I long to more connected to my spirituality" “I wish I wasn’t so affected by the ups and downs of life”. “I’d like to feel okay on the inside even when things aren’t okay on the outside” “I want some clarity around some tough decisions” “I’m tired of being controlled by my emotional reactions" “I keep seeking some kind of fulfillment or peace but it always seems just out of reach”

My Background and Approach

I'm a seasoned therapist, in practice over 40 years, and have the tools and experience to resolve whatever is 'up' for you. I've found that 'talk therapy' is often not enough to resolve many difficulties, so I use a variety of effective approaches, uniquely adjusted to match each client's needs. In addition to talk therapy, I utilize Brainspotting; EMDR; Body Centered therapy; Meditative approaches and Hypnotherapy. I work heartfully, intuitively, and share compassion, a warm down-to-earth style, and humor. My years of experience healing my own issues, as well as assisting others, have opened my heart and deepened my insight, enabling me to fully sense my client's experience and see clearly the most effective way to help. Clients experience a feeling of positive movement, relief and lightness after most sessions. Please call for a free 20-minute consult and we can talk about how I could be of help to you :-).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My psychotherapy practice is an expression of my love for working with people, as well as my life-long devotion to spiritual exploration and healing. For most of my life, I’ve been on a journey to grow emotionally and spiritually and to share this with others. The depth of clarity and wisdom that I offer to people is a culmination of many years of meeting and learning from my own life’s challenges, as well as numerous advanced trainings in state- of -the- art psychotherapeutic modalities. I’ve lectured/presented trainings locally and nationally on many specialties, including: spirituality and healing, ‘Highly Sensitive Person,’ trauma, abuse, PTSD, women’s issues, creativity development and stepfamilies. In my free time, I love hiking, swimming, kayaking, standup paddleboarding, gluten-free baking, meditating and spending time with my husband and family. I also really enjoy humor and was a member of a comedy troupe for 15 yrs – and even dabbled in some one-woman stand-up comedy!
