I bring to this work deep caring and respect, an empathic connection, and creative collaboration to develop acceptance while paving the way for desired changes. For over 20 years I have offered psychotherapy in children’s mental health agencies, schools, university and hospital clinics, and private practice. I have extensive experience using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Flash for trauma reduction and performance enhancement.
Acceptance and change can evolve from understanding and connecting with all parts of ourselves. My calling is to help children and adults cope with grief and disappointment, feel seen in their sadness and worry, accept and connect with all parts of themselves, heal from painful experiences, restore their hope, and learn new ways to resolve relationship conflicts. I have dedicated time to supporting the growth of new therapists by teaching courses at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology and Notre Dame University, and offering clinical supervision to trainees, interns associate therapists.
