I have worked for over twenty years to help families individuals children and couples find a way to continue to understand their inner world and set their inner compass despite the trauma and loss or illness that have threatened their ability to continue to grow and change. I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy which holds the relationship between the therapist and client as a catalyst for change. I use empathy, relational and interpersonal modes, and attachment principles to form a plan to bring about the changes the client would like to see.
Over the past 14 years I have incorporated Eastern philosophy of psychology into the Western psychological theories. Using mindfulness based techniques as a touchstone, I teach meditation skills , when appropriate, to help bring focus and deeper experience and acceptance of life’s conditions.
