After 18 years practicing psychotherapy I have developed into the intuitive yet practical counselor that I am today. I bring to my work a traditional psychodynamic, relational approach, my 25 years of study and practice of mindfulness and meditation, my work as an artist and study of creative modalities. I use many different practical techniques, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, guided imagery, relaxation, free association, dream work, inner child, and family systems, to help guide you as you make the changes in your life that you desire.
I believe that we all have creativity inside of us, our life force, and one of our most powerful healing tools. I will help you access this creativity and discover what makes your heart sing. I can help you clarify your goals, life purpose and gifts, and develop your strengths.
Experience has taught me that discovering and focusing on your positive aspects breathes life into your spirit, giving you the strength to combat your demons, negative thought patterns or behaviors, compulsions, addictions, or feeling trapped in the pain of the past and not knowing how to let go.
