Emotional and spiritual maturation has been the focus of my practice and supervision. Using knowledge of medicine, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, as well as my experience as a mother, family and community member, treatment plans are developed according to the needs of each patient. Though useful techniques and technology are rapidly expanding, listening and understanding each individual are the most powerful tools in guiding the pathway to emotional and spiritual health.

As a parent and an Episcopal priest, I ground my therapeutic work in the belief that each patient I counsel is unique and valuable. Using the tools of psychotherapy, I try to create a safe space for each client where healing can begin. I work collaboratively with psychiatrists and other caregivers, when appropriate. Most of my patients are individuals.

My approach to therapy is psychoanalytically based. My therapeutic style makes room for a person’s faith tradition, knowing how deeply this can inform a person’s life. I work with teens, individuals, families and groups.

Psychotherapy is inherently a spiritual process as people often seek therapy because they are looking for a greater sense of meaning and purpose in their lives. I employ both psychoanalytical and relational principles in therapy with the goal of enabling people to gain self-awareness and understanding which eventually frees them from conflict and empowers them to find greater satisfaction in their relationships and work. Ultimately, psychotherapy is about maturing by learning how to forgive and love – both self and others. I work with children, teens and individuals.

Therapy according to Freud is the “talking cure”. The therapist is someone trained in theoretical application to facilitate this “healing” for individuals, couples or families who wish to deal with their issues, fears or daily needs. It is the art of listening with the ear of the heart.

I utilize psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic techniques in therapy. Although I treat people of all ages I have an extensive history working with children, adolescents and young adults. I work most often with people in individual treatment.

Having worked in diverse surroundings including residential group home, long-term inpatient, outpatient, and privately, I’ve adopted a modern analytical approach when treating symptoms of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, anger management, schizophrenia and more. Following the contact while working with a person’s transference and resistances, helps to develop a therapeutic relationship focusing on tolerating difficult feelings through talking. As an LPC I’m qualified to help in many areas including mood disorders, thought disorders, depression, anxiety, internet addiction, sex addiction and infidelity. Further, drawing on 15 years previous experience in a variety of Information Technology corporate environments, I offer a unique therapeutic perspective and understanding of the stresses faced by modern professionals and their families.
