Bio

I am a mindfulness-based psychotherapist who is deeply committed to helping people process painful experiences and dysfunctional relationships into secure, resilient narratives.  My work with couples and individuals centers around uncovering the inner scaffolding of habitual conflict, co-dependency, and complex trauma.  I also have a special focus in working with adult children of severely mentally ill parents who suffer from schizophrenia, bi-polar and borderline personality disorders. These are waters I know well.

My approach helps clients to identify and uproot deeply entrenched negative patterns that shape how they see themselves and the world, and empowers them to redeem both their relationships and life stories.

My approach is also grounded in my training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and the Gottman Method for Couples (Level 3 Practicum & Gottman Referral Network) which integrates mindfulness based techniques to promote balance, resilience and and well being.

When you’re in crisis with a problem that needs immediate attention, the thought of spending many sessions getting to know your therapist can feel daunting and frustrating. While it’s absolutely critical to build trust with a compassionate and collaborative therapist, it’s also important to get to the root of the problem, put it into a new framework, and identify practical tools to help you move forward.
