Areas of Expertise

I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and have done specialized training in areas of particular interest.

Attachment and Developmental Psychology: My dissertation research was on attachment and its relationship to issues pertaining to eating. I work with people around those earliest attachment patterns and the ways that those patterns can impact current relationships and other areas of their lives.

Spirituality: I have a Master’s degree from the GTU and have a deep appreciation and respect for the spiritual dimension in people’s lives. I have worked with people from a wide variety of traditions who have brought their spirituality explicitly into our work.

Trauma: I have completed a 3-year advanced training in Somatic Experiencing, which is an approach to trauma developed by Peter Levine.

In more than 25 years as a psychotherapist, I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds who have faced a wide variety of challenges, such as:

  • Problems from childhood, including abuse and neglect
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Life transitions
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and loss
  • Addictions and recovery
  • Compulsive/emotional eating
  • Spirituual issues
  • Serious, life-threatening or chronic medical conditions
  • Stress
  • Relationship problems
  • Self-esteem
  • Identity issues
  • Infertility
