The primary focus of my clinical practice centers on provision of trauma-informed, autonomically informed care, assisting individuals, couples and families in recovering from the impact of complex trauma and in fostering resilience. I am well-versed in various trauma-informed approaches, e.g.,
Somatic Experiencing®, Relational Life Therapy, parts work, clinical hypnosis, AF-EMDR.


I have been providing guidance and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families for nearly 30 years. My therapeutic approach is focused on facilitating mental “health,” guiding people to move from disconnection to reconnection, from polarization to balance, from fragmentation to integrated wholeness.While initially trained as a generalist, working with a wide range of clinical issues, over the past 15 years, I have developed special concentration on trauma recovery work, specifically in relational trauma/C-PTSD, which is often manifested in habitual escape from inner experience, chronic anxiety/depression (autonomic/emotional dysregulation), addictive processes, fragile/inflated sense of self(shame/grandiosity), recurrent relational struggles, etc.The ultimate goal of my job as a psychotherapist is to help you discover, strengthen and trust your “inner gauge,” so that, eventually, you can confidently turn to it for answers without the need for my assistance.

Before you send out an appointment request, please first ask yourself, “Am I willing to do the work?”My clinical experience has repeatedly borne this out: When you are not ready for therapy, you will not be able to see or hear me, and I will not be able to experience the real you, either. Coming into therapy reluctantly, you may not only waste time, money and energy, but, eventually, feel bad about yourself for
“failing” in life yet again.

When you are ready to embark on this mysterious journey, you will be surprised by many amazing encounters along the way, first of all, by listening to your inner voice. You will learn to trust your inner wisdom, access your innate gift and realize your potential. You will, little by little, come to change your life from the inside out!
