As a Licensed Clinical Psycholoigst with over 30 years of experience, I am well suited to work with individuals and couples with relationship issues, anxiety, mind-body problems. My style is interactive and respectful, and I gear my interventions to the person and their particular situation. I may use a Jungian Orientation making use of dreams; mind/body orientation, or mindfully-based cognitive approaches utilizing imagery, visualizations, progressive relaxation or biofeedback in addressing your particular life circumstances.. If you would like to obtain a broader idea of my vast experience, publications and trainings, please access my personal website at for more information.
I work with people who have anxiety and depression; relationship issues; problems coping with stress; pain management; acute, chronic and serious medical problems; life threatening illness and end of life concerns;and needs for personal growth.I am certified to work with those facing death, dying, or bereavement .
I have much experience working with patients and their families addressing the psychological aspects of medical problems. My Jungian, Mindfully based stressed management , and Mind Body Orientations provide me with a richness of tools with which to help people address these issues, including caregiver stress, and life and death situations.
