I bring an open mind and heart to the essential work of facilitating healing and personal growth. I believe that client and therapist are co-creators of the therapeutic process, and my goal is to attune to your goals and world-view to identify how best to assist you, wherever you are, with whatever you are facing.
I am experienced in using various modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT); dialectical behavior therapy (DBT); and mindfulness-based strategies for stress reduction and cognitive change, including classical meditative practices to enhance awareness and promote emotional regulation. My training in internal family systems therapy (IFS) serves as a lens for viewing personality dynamics in a nonjudgmental, validating framework; and I use techniques of IFS, Focusing dreamwork, and clinical hypnosis that allow deeper exploration of your internal world to promote emotional and spiritual healing. I work with adults [18-80] with symptoms of depression, anxiety, and trauma; relationship stress; and phase-of-life adjustment, including chronic pain, grief, and loss. I promote your personal growth, spiritual exploration, and use of creativity and provide a listening mind and compassionate heart to travel with you on this stretch of your path to a more authentic and fulfilling life.
