About me

I have been working as a therapist since 1996. I work in an integrative way; attending to the multiple aspects of self: emotions, intellect, somatic (body-physical), social, creative, and when relevant spiritual aspects of self. I specialize in working with trauma (PTSD), complex trauma (childhood and developmental trauma), including anxiety and depression and relational issues.

I work with individual adults as well as couples. When working with couples I work from an EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) model, which is based on Sue Johnson's research/model.
