About My Clients

We all feel discouraged sometimes and we all want to be seen and loved for who we are. Life does not always go where we expect it to – disappointments, losses and transitions do happen. I offer an artful blend of tools and insight with sound science as our base. Let’s tap into your inner wisdom and together, forge a path forward. This path can include laughter, joy and feeling at home in who you are despite the challenges you are facing.

My Background and Approach

I offer research-based strategies to increase feelings of trust, good will and connection. With more than twenty years of ongoing training and clinical experience, I consider and honor differences in how people think and feel. You will be comfortable and supported in whatever style suits you best during our sessions. For individuals, couples and families I bring experience and training in Compassion-Focused Therapy, Shame Resilience, Self-Compassion and Family Systems. Couples will want to know that I am trained in the Gottman Method - Level 3.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

There is no one right way to communicate, the key is understanding what makes each other tick and learning how to connect effectively.Adults consult with me for help making sense of their relationships with friends, partners and family. Managing stress, anxiety, self-doubt and sadness are also issues we can work on together. I also consult with parents and families who may have concerns or need help connecting with their child/teen or young adult. As an individual, couple and family systems therapist I specialize in transitions across the life cycle. I value gender, sexual, racial, class, disability and religious/spiritual identity. We are all doing the best we can and that sometimes we just need a little help. Let’s talk about how I can help you.
