I offer psychotherapy and counseling for individuals, couples and groups regarding life issues such as work, aging, health, body, personal relationships, finances and experiencing the Self. My integrative approach can reduce anxiety and depression; move blocked cellular energy; facilitate healing loss and grief; and transform relationship. For instance, coping skills are formed early to survive in family-of-origin and the culture. As we age, these coping skills become less adaptive, causing pain. Successful transition through life involves examination of our ways of coping to keep what works and release what does not, replacing with skills which enhance life.

My methods include EMDR which uses bilateral stimulation to facilitate processing in the brain; EFT; Theta Healing; writing and narrative; and Cognitive, Psychodynamic, Family-of-Origin and Systems therapies. Treatment is based on individual need and so may include exploring conflict resolution and development of focusing and self-esteem skills.
