Approach and Focus


I was trained in psychodynamic and family systems theories. Over the years, I have studied Jungian analytical psychology, attachment theory, feminist self-in-relation theory (Stone Center), and Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy. All of these have been integrated to form my approach to clinical work.

 

 


I work relationally and have a special interest in clients who are dealing with relationships and attachment issues, concerns of sexual and gender identity, bisexuality, mixed-orientation and nontraditional relationships, eating disorders, and matters of body image and size acceptance. I work with anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, grief, life transitions, polyamory, self-esteem, and personal growth. I enjoy working symbolically—with sand tray, dreams, art, and guided imagery.

 

 


I supervise and train student therapists and provide consultation for other therapists.
