To address your specific needs, I will draw on a variety of tools from my training and experience, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, Imago Relationship Therapy, biofeedback, hypnosis/meditation, etc. I am committed to building a partnership with you and doing my part to create an atmosphere of acceptance and trust so that you will feel safe to explore your past, your present and your future. Through this work, you can become a conscious, knowledgeable participant on your own healing journey. My role in your therapy is to help you create solutions to the barriers that hold you in your current life space and keep you from achieving the life that you desire.

Groups are typically 90 minutes long. Different groups may be running at different times.
I am currently in the process of forming three groups:
1. An Imago Couples Group – a group for couples interested in learning different Imago techniques to help deepen their connections and improve their relationships.
2. Coping with Infertility- a group for individuals and couples who are coping with reproductive trauma.
Please contact me if you are interested in participating in a group or if you have any questions.
Workshops such as : “Couplehood As a Spiritual Path” or “Start Right Stay Connected” may be scheduled. Please contact me if interested.
Assessments are conducted on an individual basis and may include a variety of standardized tests, projective measures, normed referenced scales, and informal measures. The sessions and fees vary depending on the reason for referral.
