Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit!
Relocated from my private practice in the Northeast 6 years ago, I provide integrative and holistic psychotherapy, breast cancer support, and creativity coaching for adults in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I graduated from the Columbia University School of Social Work in 1987 with a clinical specialty in Women's Issues, Trauma, and Addiction. Subsequently I studied an expansive myriad of treatment modalities, became adept at addressing a wide variety of life challenging issues, and consider myself seasoned both in my expertise and lived humanity. I have rich practice experience in New York City, Brooklyn (NY), and Rhode Island, both in agencies and in private practice. My approach is an active collaboration between myself and my client, is based on what my client wants as their goals, is non-judgmental, relaxed, responsive, empowered, kind, and strengths-based. The work is always enriched by my knowledge of both western and eastern therapeutic techniques (with an emphasis on mindfulness, narrative, mind-body therapies, and wellness), and by the idea that there is powerful meaning to be found, even in struggle.
