"I work with people who have experienced significant traumatic events, whether single incidents such as rape, automobile accidents or natural disasters, or ongoing trauma such as childhood maltreatment, war or torture. I also work with men and women who have identified their anger and sometimes use of violence as problematic. And I work with professionals who have been impacted by other people's traumatic experiences. I offer relational psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I also offer consultation, psychological assessments and workshops."

"My primary goal as a therapist is to work collaboratively with you to craft a therapeutic experience where you feel seen, heard, and cared for, which is tailored to what you are comfortable with and what you need. My theoretical orientation is psychodynamic, which ultimately just means that I focus on helping you to understand yourself, your feelings, your needs, and your relationships with the goal of making you more self-aware, empathic with yourself, relaxed, in control, and fulfilled in life."
"Are you feeling stuck, anxious or depressed? I can help. Spiritual Psychology and Depth Hypnosis offer fast and permanent healing on all levels; mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. Real change IS possible. Underlying negative patterns and beliefs can be transformed and new, healthier more productive ways of being will take their place. With compassion, kindness, warmth and years of grounded experience I help clients overcome depression and anxiety, heal from trauma and abuse and break free of destructive life patterns of alcoholism, addiction and co-dependency."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
"Choosing to see a therapist is a courageous act; I applaud you for taking this step. My approach to therapy is a collaborative one. I believe that in working together in an authentic and curious way, we can realize effective ways to meet life's challenges."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT
"Many of my clients are successful professionals who are beginning to question whether they are on the right path. Some are searching for a more creative or spiritual way of life. Others crave relationships of greater substance. Still others seek clarity of purpose. Most feel limited by notions of what they have to be or do for the sake of others. You may have something in common with these people."
"I have worked with people who are looking to find deeper meanings about the reasons they feel things sadness, anxiety, confusion, rejection, and rage, to name a few. When we sit down, we will work together to sort out your feelings and then help with understanding them so that you can have more control over how you think and react. There are many different paths we can follow to make links between the past and current challenges. My goal is to listen and work with you to uncover thoughts and conflicts that can interfere with your happiness in daily living."
Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MA, MFTI
"Psychotherapy with me is a collaborative, supportive, and sometimes challenging journey. On this path you will get to know what contributes to your happiness, and what no longer serves you. I hold a position of curiosity and reverence, especially when encountering patterns you don't want around anymore. Guided by a love of truth, I work with you to create and strengthen you inner support network and let go of that which limits you."
"Lacking pleasure and fulfillment, life turns anxious and desolate. When problems fester untended, they undermine zest, dampening our inner life force. A primary tool toward inner healing and growth is finding the essential meaning in your life. This requires learning who you are underneath the defenses and barriers that have been necessary for safety. In psychotherapy we form a relationship in which it is safe to talk about who you are and how you experience the world around you. Consequently you may come to know and appreciate yourself more deeply, and find the meaning that will give your life gusto."
"The essence of my work lies in creating a relationship with you in which you would feel safe to engage in an inner journey home - opening your heart to yourself, cultivating compassionate self-understanding and developing trust in what is being felt in the moment. Old hurts and self-defeating beliefs can cause us to defend against vulnerable feelings impacting our capacity to trust, ourselves and others, and our ability to connect intimately, think positively regarding our deepest life concerns and open to love, allowing it to work its way through us impacting and inspiring all areas of our life."
Marriage & Family Therapist Intern
"I provide depth-oriented psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families of all configurations. Being human isn't always easy, and sometimes we can't figure our way through it alone. When life gets complicated, brief therapy can offer you tools to navigate a crisis. Longer-term therapy moves beyond symptoms into a deeper exploration of what makes us who we are. My approach to individual therapy is psychodynamic and humanistic. The core of the therapeutic relationship is the interaction between the two people in the room."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT, MA
"You may feel ready to make some personal or relational changes but feel apprehensive about the prospect of therapy and what it may entail. In my psychotherapy practice, I work with clients to collaboratively develop a plan that addresses your needs, incorporates your strengths, and alleviates your symptoms in the most timely way possible. My approach is compassionate, solution-focused, and pragmatic. I believe that my clients ultimately know what is best for them, and it is my job to facilitate improvement through a empathic yet challenging therapeutic environment."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, JD
"In my view, everyone has something unique to offer to the world, a gift that is particularly their own, that can enrich their life and the lives of those around them. For many reasons, people often do not recognize their own gifts or are afraid to express them. They devise very creative ways to override who they really are, sometimes consciously and sometimes not. Because it takes so much energy to hide who they really are, people eventually become symptomatic. Symptoms manifest in a variety of ways. Their purpose, however, is simply to get our attention."
"My primary expertise is in helping people to remove the internal barriers that are keeping them from reaching their dreams."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
"My therapeutic style is grounded in Existential/Humanistic and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge in order to create meaningful, joyful and healthy lives."

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT, REAT
"I generally work with high functioning people at important junctures in life where the suffering is great. Asking for help is often a powerful step of surrendering the ego's attempts to resist change. Symptoms are often a sign that something is trying to wake up inside of you. When you turn your attention inward and get intimate with your inner life you can start to find the energy to heal, to grow and to change."
Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT
"Welcome! I like to begin by making a warm and heartfelt connection with you, supporting and accepting you just as you are. From there, we work together to transform difficult struggles into opportunities for greater self-love and rich understanding. I see our work together as a living collaboration, with you being at choice and empowered every step of the way. I ground my practice in a process I call Mindful Inquiry: in a relaxed, open and deeply aware state, we illuminate and dissolve the stories of the mind, stories that had masked your innate beauty and true nature."

"We often come to therapy in crisis. Something has gone wrong in a relationship. Major, disorienting life transitions are underway. Emotional experiences are becoming increasingly overwhelming. Life seems stuck, static, depressing. Anxiety is on the rise. A series of events have altered our course. We are feeling lost. Therapy can offer a soothing lifeboat for these rough seas. Often crisis is a wake up call, a time for necessary change, new growth, a reconnoitering of the landscape, a vivid reorientation. My practice is designed to move you from crisis to care, from care to confidence, confidence to creative, enlivening capacity."
"I work with all types of people - from those suffering from anxiety or depression, to people adjusting to major life stressors or changes. Contact me for a free initial consultation to see how I might be of service."
"Are you or your child worried, unhappy, frustrated, unmotivated, failing to live up to your potential? Are you experiencing a transition that leads you to question your beliefs or direction? For over 20 years I have collaborated with clients of all ages (including young children and their parents) to identify, understand and address the barriers to more fulfilling relationships, work, academics, play, creativity and life. My focus is on an in-depth and compassionate understanding of each individual's unique strengths and difficulties, the factors that influence each person beyond his or her awareness and an individualized approach."
Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MS, MA, MFTI
"Therapy is about developing a new kind of relationship with one's experience. Much of our pain, suffering, and struggle stem from resisting the experience, judging it, and denying it. My work is dedicated to helping you embrace the challenges and find meaning in them by helping you slow down, enter the experience, and discover your potent spark. We have our answers within and by looking inside, our suffering finds meaning and transformation, our vision finds clarity and awakening."
