About My Clients

If you are a woman struggling with family of origin issues, trauma, boundaries, creating a sense of Self, eating/body/food/weight, sexual orientation, work/life balance, cultivating and maintaining meaningful relationships, anxiety, stress or depression, chances are that we will be a good fit. In addition to insight-oriented talk therapy, i am trained in several body - focused treatment methods that create lasting and permanent change, including EFT Tapping, PC, Meditation and Hypnosis.

My Background and Approach

My personal background includes being raised for a time outsidethe US, and because of this I have always had a great appreciation for and interest in people from all cultures different than my own. I welcome women from all places, races, religions, cultures, experiences, sexual orientations, physical abilities, body shapes and sizes, GNC, relationship configurations and more. The foundation of my therapy work is based in my own personal therapy journey of almost 30 years and includes psychodynamic talk therapy, meditation, EFT Tapping, hypnosis, and other specific (and very effective) trauma resolution skills. I believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is the foundation of all good therapy work, and the single most important factor in facilitating healing and growth. I will offer you tools that you can begin using immediately in order to achieve your goals, and together we will forge the path ahead to your most peaceful path.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Our humanity must be front and center if we are to live a meaningful life. Connection to Self and Others is essential for physical, spiritual and psychological health. Healing and wholeness is possible. Faith, religion, spirituality is all sacred, personal and individual. We are here, in this incarnation, to fill ourselves up as much as possible, so that from the excess and overflow, we may give back to the world. These are all beliefs that have been passed on to me, and values that I work to live by.
