Anxiety, grief, fear and depression are common, yet painful, states that impact our sense of wellbeing, our relationship success and our ability to function optimally in our chosen work. I provide support for adult individuals and couples to identify and resolve the problems standing between you and the fulfillment you desire and deserve.
I have a psychodynamic orientation, focused on understanding the connection between early experience and our adult personalities. We will work together to make the unknown known, and to realize the freedom and peace that come of being liberated from emotional pain. Using practical strategies, cognitive and emotion-focused approaches, I will help you create and execute a plan to meet your important personal goals. Please see my Psychology Today provider profile for additional information.
The impact of traumatic events often lingers long after the incident itself, and the impact of repeated trauma can be especially difficult to overcome. I provide EMDR therapy - Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing - to help individuals release themselves from the grip that trauma holds on their present life. EMDR is an integrative therapy, employing psychoanalytic, cognitive, emotional and somatic techniques that combine to gently enable the mind's natural healing process. EMDR is an empirically-supported treatment, endorsed by the National Institute of Health, the World Health Organization and US Veterans Administration for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other psychologically distressing conditions.
I maintain a small consultation practice for mission-guided companies, providing them with organizational assessments and executive mentoring. For human service agencies, I also offer supervision to clinical social work teams or individuals. My twenty-five years' experience in nonprofit executive management and public health administration, combined with my clinical training, has enabled me to offer distinct supports that help leaders successfully navigate key challenges, such as Board of Director relationships, funder/regulatory engagement, service expansion, mergers, impact evaluation and employee development.
I typically schedule psychotherapy sessions on weekdays, between 8:00AM and 5:00PM. Sessions are by appointment only. Please contact me to discuss your specific needs.
First session $195
Subsequent sessions $170
Extended sessions available, charged in 15 minute increments
I participate with several insurance plans. If I am not on your plan, at your request, I will provide a statement for you to submit for reimbursement, if available through your insurance carrier. Please call to inquire.
