My approach to psychotherapy involves a co-creative process with each client.  According to your reasons for seeking support, your sessions might include verbal therapy, art therapy, therapeutic yoga, breathwork, EMDR, and/or dreamwork to:


•       Honor your resilience and inner resources.

•       Address anxiety, depression, insomnia, and/or relationship issues.

•       Heal grief, loss, trauma, physical and emotional pain.

•       Create new pathways, perspectives, relationships to self & others, and

         visions for the future.

•       Integrate body/soul/psyche, moving toward even more wholeness.


My work as a healer is based on my experience as a therapist in addition to my own healing path over the past 30 years.  Since 2000, I have practiced art therapy and yoga therapy  with adolescents, adults, and elders.  I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and a board certified, registered Art Therapist (ATR-BC). 


Areas of specialization include adolescence and young adulthood, trauma work, somatic issues, women's health, sexuality, group psychotherapy, and clinical supervision.  I love working with clients from divergent backgrounds. 


In addition to private practice, fourteen years of experience in in-patient psychiatric settings have offered a rich foundation in working with people impacted by various forms of trauma.  Trauma-related training includes Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and certification in trauma-sensitive yoga instruction from the Trauma Center in Boston, MA.  I am continually inspired by new research in the areas of neuropsychology and trauma metabolism. 


I am guided and inspired by the work of Carl Jung, Bessel van der Kolk, Gail Malizia, Shannon McCall, my own healers, and my resilient clients.
