Practice statement:
My practice is geared toward children and adults overcoming impact of trauma and regaining their ability to lead joyful, meaningful and successful lives.  I have extensive training and experience in working with children and teens, who have experienced physical, sexual and emotional abuse, as well as children who may be experiencing less severe symptoms of poor school performance, motivation problems, anxiety and depression or oppositional behavior.  In addition to traditional talk therapy, I use trauma-informed art and play therapy approaches, which are often more accessible to younger children and are often the more age-appropriate interventions, according to research.   I have experience in helping families dealing with separation, adoption, foster placement and child protection issues.  I also work with adults, couples and families dealing with relational struggles, anxiety, depression, anger problems and other struggles.

In my years of practice I learned that human beings are unique and each person requires their own individual path toward overcoming obstacles.  For that reason, therapy could be the most personal experience in people's lives and no one approach or preexisting formula is right for everyone, child or adult.

Practice Statement: When we change our brains, we change our lives, when we connect with our emotions, we open our hearts. I help facilitate those changes.   When I completed an MA in Human Development, (self directed/created program) my focus was on neuroscience and psychotherapy. I studied attachment theory and also Dan Siegel's work on interpersonal neurobiology: http://www.drdansiegel.com/about/interpersonal_neurobiology/ which I integrate into my work.  I trust in my ability to create safe relationships with them in which they can explore the thoughts, beliefs and emotions they have not been able to access on their own.  My family is an interracial family, so I also have in-depth knowledge of historical/racial trauma, as well as lived experience as someone outside of privilege in many ways. I work from a feminist theory perspective, and I also studied feminist pedagogy at the doctoral level.

Practice Statement

I BELIEVE: 1) It is in the context of relationship that we make the deepest change. 2) We grow and excel in an environment with just the right amount of support & challenge. 3) We must feel understood-by ourselves, yes, and often by another--before we can make change. 4) Engaging in our passions make us come alive. These four core beliefs guide my work as a psychologist, life coach, author, radio host, and performer. Working collaboratively and fostering safe spaces, together we can increase awareness and create experiences that allow our best selves to emerge.

First, I listen deeply and whole heartedly. I then shuttle between what I hear you saying is happening now and how you want your life to be different. As you try new behaviors, I help with 1) Increasing helpful thoughts and behaviors--and reducing unhelpful ones, and 2) Celebrating successes.

While I offer collaborative, integrative individual and couple psychotherapy, one of my favorite parts of my workweek is Tuesday night Group Psychotherapy for Men and Women.

Many of our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are often maladaptive and etched in our implicit brains from childhood; we need to not just explore them but to reframe them so that we can function in our lives today in a more positive, profound, and productive manner enabling us to achieve our goals in life and find happiness and contentment with our choices and ourselves.  All this is achievable.

Psychopharmacology: No

Practice Statement: In my practice, for specific trauma's, EMDR Therapy has proven itself to be highly effective and also a very efficient way of resolving the blockage that trauma often creates. This allows clients to go thru their daily lives without the debilitating, unwelcome, intrusive feelings and reminders that keep them from enjoying their day-to-day routines. Other long-term traumatizing circumstances frequently require a different approach - combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment-focused therapy, and (if needed) EMDR Therapy as well. Since I see each person as unique, I work with each client to evaluate their particular circumstances and then focus therapy as needed to meet those needs.

Populations: Adolescents, Adults, Veterans, Law Enforcement, Couples, Sex Offenders, DID (I have extensive experience working with BPD and Narcissistic Personality Disorder with DID playing a prominent role.  I find that they tend to be long-term clients that require patience in the extreme, coupled with the ability to absorb extremely inappropriate behaviors.  I am willing to journey with the client to resolve those behaviors.  My approach to working with DID is to allow the client to give me a complete picture of their experience with DID because each one is individual. As we work together I ask for specific examples of how each client experiences DID and together we creatively produce a process to reintegrate the client with themselves. Some DID issues are spiritual in nature and some are physical in nature.  It is important to identify the source for effective treatment.)  I also plan on continuing education in the area of DID in 2017.

Modalities: Main Modality is that you are the expert on your trauma. Other modalities include: CBT, Structural, Emotional Focused, Gestalt, Family Systems, Trauma and attachment: Effective treatment Interventions

Practice Statement: No one begins life to be traumatized. It just happens.  When it happens and we get stuck in the trauma, that is where a third party comes in.  I have extensive experience, both personally and professionally, with trauma. My approach is to create a safe place where you can process through the trauma at your own pace.  My therapeutic assumption is that you want to get out of the trauma even more than I want you to get out of the trauma.  My promise to you is that I will gently walk through the process for as long as you need me to.

Practice statement:My practice is geared toward children and adults overcoming impact of trauma and regaining their ability to lead joyful, meaningful and successful lives.  I have extensive training and experience in working with children and teens, who have experienced physical, sexual and emotional abuse, as well as children who may be experiencing less severe symptoms of poor school performance, motivation problems, anxiety and depression or oppositional behavior.  In addition to traditional talk therapy, I use trauma-informed art and play therapy approaches, which are often more accessible to younger children and are often the more age-appropriate interventions, according to research.   I have experience in helping families dealing with separation, adoption, foster placement and child protection issues.  I also work with adults, couples and families dealing with relational struggles, anxiety, depression, anger problems and other struggles.In my years of practice I learned that human beings are unique and each person requires their own individual path toward overcoming obstacles.  For that reason, therapy could be the most personal experience in people's lives and no one approach or preexisting formula is right for everyone, child or adult.

Practice Statement: I have been working in private practice for over 18 years and am broadly and deeply trained in both psychotherapy and holistic/integrative wellness. I specialize in customizing the methods of psychological, emotional, and psychospiritual healing to the client, co-creating both the therapeutic environment and the work to fit individual needs. In addition, I am available to consult with physicians to support the client’s physical health and wellbeing through integrative practices. 

 

Couples work often involves the exploration and untangling of childhood attachment injuries and traumas that adversely affect bonded adult relationships. I specialize in helping couples establish/re-establish intimate bonds of safety and attachment to one another. For couples “on the brink” of separation or divorce, I offer Discernment Counseling - a limited-session targeted approach to assist in determining the best course of action to move forward and get relationally un-stuck. 


Weekly Therapy Groups are offered yearly between September and May, and are designed to help participants practice symptom management, mindfulness, authenticity, self-compassion, and relational support. The group is mixed gender and the ages typically range from 20s-70s. Some clients return yearly and others get what they need over the course of one cycle. This popular group is closed, meaning that once the group begins for the year, no one else is added.

Practice Statement:

Most mental health issues can be traced back to trauma.  Trauma can originate from many different types of life experiences. If you feel anxious, depressed, sad, or unsafe, or if you feel you're not good enough, or unworthy, not smart enough, if you have feelings of anger/rage, shame or guilt, etc., chances are you have experienced some degree of trauma in your life. Alcohol, drugs, over-eating, work-a-holism, shopping to excess, etc. are some of the ways can we use to suppress and/or over-ride these uncomfortable beliefs and feelings we carry from past trauma. One does not need to continue living and suffering in this way - healing and happiness are available to you.

With effort and a little time you can heal. The path to healing is simple, but requires effort on your part. I'm skilled at this work and have years of experience. I have guided many clients on their path to freedom and happiness, and I'd be happy to work with you.
