Areas of Expertise

I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. In addition to a generalized practice, I have specialized training and experience in the following:

Attachment and Relational Psychology: My dissertation was on attachment and issues related to eating. I have done post-doctoral training in prenatal and perinatal psychology as well as in relational therapy. I work with people around their earliest experiences and the way those experiences impact their current lives.

Somatic Therapy: I completed a 3-year training program in Somatic Experiencing and have also trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I integrate these somatic approaches into my work, particularly with those who have experienced trauma.

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