Profile
“To each relationship, I strive to bring empathy, curiosity, and wisdom gained from professional training and life experience to guide you through the process of facing difficulty and making changes.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As the daughter of immigrants, I grew up with my feet in several worlds. Observing how people interacted and cared for each other, I also witnessed ways in which communication styles could damage or facilitate relationships. Psychology drew me in as the best language for understanding the world; I obtained my doctorate in licensed clinical psychology in order to learn more. Prior to practicing privately, I served as the clinical director of Birch Family Camp, a summer camp program hosting families affected by HIV and AIDS. I have also undertaken further study in relational psychoanalysis and development of human resilience.
What should someone know about working with you?
For over 25 years, I have conducted psychotherapy using psychodynamic and psychoanalytic approaches as well as cognitive behavioral, existential, and mind-body techniques to augment the therapeutic process. I have been honored to work with a wide variety of people going through many different types of life challenges. To each relationship, I strive to bring empathy, curiosity, and wisdom gained from professional training and life experience to guide you through the process of facing difficulty and making changes. Personal change happens best in the right climate of support and challenge. As your therapist, my role will be first to collaborate with you in observing your life patterns. We will then work together to understand what is creating difficulty and what can help you to survive, thrive, and find paths to reach your goals.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I find wisdom in the natural world and strive not just to learn about nature but to learn from it. Observing life cycles, how injury and repair happens, and how each living thing has its own perspective is enormously helpful in examining our own experiences through different lenses. I have studied evidence-based works on developing personal resilience; I utilize meditation, exercise, mind-body work, readings, and dialogue to find meaning and support ongoing growth even through the most challenging times.
