I practice from the philosophical point of view that most behaviors are adaptations to the circumstances, environments and relationships human beings experience. I believe that most destructive beliefs and behaviors are rooted in the less than nurturing events we experience over the course of our life. Welcome to the human condition! Many of us can benefit from learning how to manage our human experience in healthier, constructive ways that promote growth and personal evolution. I believe in utilizing the brain’s neuroplasticity and activating our innate capacity to heal to increase and strengthen positive, growth inspiring beliefs and behaviors.

As a relational, trauma-informed therapist, I work with individuals, couples and families. I have training in EMDR, Post Induction Therapy (Relational Trauma), Experiential Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.

I take a collaborative, individualized approach with clients to assist them in constructing and understanding their personal stories. We cannot change an individual’s story but we can change the reaction and response to it. And you, with the power of your (sometimes) overwhelming humanness , can write a better ending.
