About Me

I am a Registered Psychologist in private practice for over 20 years and I am passionate about your right to live the rich and meaningful life you are meant to live. I am here to help you clarify what you want and foster your hope and persistence for attaining your deepest desires.

Each of us deserves to be our authentic self, free of self sabotage and self doubt. We all have within us the seeds of our own healing and growth and I collaborate with you to cultivate those seeds and enable you to become a compassionate advocate for your own ongoing freedom.

I am trained in several evidence-based approaches that incorporate theoretical principles shown to produce lasting change in anxiety, depression and self-defeating character patterns. These approaches are accelerated, affect and somatic focused, experiential and psychodynamic. I have worked with individuals and groups helping people reconnect to their health and inner resources, resolving defensive patterns of anxiety, depression, lack of intimacy, low self worth, loneliness, trauma, panic, perfectionism, stuckness and chronic worry.

Integrating an understanding of developmental psychology, attachment research, neurobiology, mindfulness and the profound hunger for reaching our human potential, I invite you to come home to the body with compassion, to experience the vulnerable discomfort of being human, and grow.

Creator of the Key to Growth public workshops and video series and the 10 week Breath Of Courage Program for anxiety and panic, I have facilitated numerous groups and garnered national and local radio and newspaper coverage for that work.  I have been consulted for TV interviews and magazine articles on anxiety and stress, have been published in academic journals, and have done training workshops for psychologists and counselors on effective treatment for panic and anxiety.
