I carefully tailor therapy, whether short-term or long-term, to my client's needs, making use of a wide range of therapeutic approaches in an interactive, practical, and focused way.
First and foremost, I bring a wealth of wisdom culled from my own life experience raising children, having long-term relationships, being a businesswoman, and coming from a large, dynamic family.
I bring the fruits of nearly 30 years of mindfulness practice—a calm, clear, and focused attention and an expanded view of your potential as a spiritual being.
Since 1991, I have been helping clients achieve their goals and live on purpose. I regularly and actively incorporate the best and latest information for wellbeing into my practice.
I frequently use the Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) because of its gentle, yet rapid effectiveness in accessing inner resources and systematically unburdening impediments to full living. I am a certified IFS Therapist.
In my experience, an understanding of Developmental Psychology provides a roadmap for anticipating areas of disruption in the unfolding of your life.
In addressing such symptoms as depression, anxiety, and trauma, I interweave Cognitive-Behavior Therapy throughout our work together.
Object-Relations, Psychodynamic, and Attachment theories provide helpful templates for recognizing the specific effect of historical relational experiences on your life today.
A Somatically-based approach provides essential information for understanding and working with physical symptoms and accessing nonverbal experiences.
For couples, my work is informed by John Gottman’s research, the IFS model, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
Additionally, I incorporate what I have learned from Intersubjectivity, Guided Imagery, Hypnosis, Brief Dynamic Psychotherapy/AEDP, and Dialectical Behavioral Psychotherapy (DPT).
