Personal Statement

Personal Statement:


I have been a psychotherapist for 29 years and specialize in treating post-traumatic stress disorder, attachment issues in relationships, grief, anxiety, depression, and addictive patterns.

My approach to therapy is rooted in neurobiology and integrates Somatic Experiencing® into “talking therapy.” I focus on how both suffering and a sense of well-being influence the Mind-Body-Spirit connection.

I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes, and that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Healing can occur in a therapeutic relationship, through the awareness that is born out of observing oneself while being witnessed by another.

I work with individuals, couples, families, teens and children ages 7 and up, and have worked extensively with military service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, focusing on war experiences and their influences on their relationships and families.

I am fluent in English, Spanish and German and understand the significant effects one’s culture has on personal experiences and relationships.

Personally, I am guided by 15 years of meditation and a life-long practice of yoga, dance and aikido.
