I am a licensed psychologist who has been in practice for over 20 years. My professional roles include psychotherapist, human development and parenting consultant, clinical supervisor and consultant for other licensed mental health providers, and educator.
As a psychotherapist I provide therapy for couples and families as well as for individual adults and teenagers. I also provide parenting interventions when it is appropriate and requested. This work is based on the latest science on human development and attachment and is usually done as an integrated part of the couple’s or individual treatment.
I have a particular expertise in early, formative trauma and PTSD. Thus, I assist individuals and couples with working on and through the early relational harm and hardships that continue to impact or impede their current relationships and functioning. In addition to relational and trauma issues, I provide care for people suffering from depression and anxiety, eating disorders, and general life stressors and challenges. I also treat addictions, as they are often a part of the many other issues that people are struggling with and I have extensive experience working with them.
I am an active psychotherapist who works primarily from a relational perspective. This means that I believe that we are formed, harmed and healed in relationships; and work with people in the therapy room to create the healing part of relationship in an engaged and connected manner. During this process I integrate and utilize interventions based in Interpersonal Neurobiology and Attachment science as well as dynamic, systemic, somatic, and cognitive behavioral theories.
I truly enjoy being in relationship with individuals and their families in what I believe to be sacred work, and look forward to speaking with you about entering into this process together. Please contact me at the number listed below.
