For over 20 years I have provided therapy for individuals and couples who made the courageous choice to make their lives better.  Whether you want relief from suffering, the strength to overcome challenges or more deeply connected and satisfying relationships, I can help.  As you awaken to the inner resources already within you, you begin to experience the joy, fulfillment and vitality that is your true nature.

My approach is based on the most current research, including:

INTERPERSONAL NEUROBIOLOGY

Recognizes the rapidly growing connections between psychology and neuroscience,  illuminating interactions of the mind, the brain, and relationships.  As new emotional experiences occur in therapy,  new neural pathways are formed, allowing substantial changes in feelings, mood, and behavior.

MINDFULNESS PRACTICE

Continues to reveal  functional-MRI data supporting decreased depression, anxiety, and distress along with increased immune system response, affect regulation and increased happiness.

ACCELERATED EXPERIENTIAL DYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY

Developed by Dr. Diana Fosha, author of the The Transforming Power of Affect, AEDP comprises many disciplines — among them attachment theory, affective neuroscience, body-focused approaches and transformational studies.

EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED THERAPY

One of the  strongest empirically supported models for couples therapy in the world with 90% of couples getting better and 73% fully recovered with continued signs of improvement.
