Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)

Discover the true origin of well-being, and become the person you know yourself to be. Specializing in Relationship, Reactivity and Addiction, and active in the healing professions since 1990, I focus on clearing and and transforming deep wounds and difficult emotional patterns for individuals, couples and families. Utilizing an effective, multi-modal approach that unites the best of Western psychology and Eastern healing traditions, I help my clients become more mindful, inhabit their bodies, gain clarity about their past to create change in the present, and develop more compassion and insight. As a therapist with a teaching background, as well as a seeker who has experienced full healing from multiple traumas, I balance cognitive and emotionally-focused therapy with mindfulness techniques that access (and, if necessary) change of old patterns of thinking, behavior, and self- or relationship sabotage. Extremely effective work for addiction, trauma, grief, depression-anxiety, body image, eating disorders, relationship issues, sex and intimacy, and spiritual inquiry. I also utilize the Voice Dialogue method, and am a certified yoga therapist, having continuously taught yoga and yoga teachers professionally since 1987.

In couples therapy, I help my clients understand the emotions, needs, expectations, triggers, defenses and the coping mechanisms that keep them cycling through negative experiences. The goal is to determine how to make your relationship work for you! Learn to create more space for each partner to come forth by utilizing tools that change the way you interrelate, as well do the necessary repair work of old hurts that continue to fester. Models I work with: Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, the work of John and Julie Gottman, David Schnarch and Imago Therapy for communications skills.
