I see psychotherapy as primary care.

Whether it’s an early life trauma or a current situation that is emotionally painful, it’s natural to want to protect yourself. But when protecting and defending becomes your way of coping with emotional pain, it will eventually narrow how you see yourself and how you interact with others.

I work with adults, families and organizations to help them identify and heal protective coping patterns that can keep them stuck.


In June I’ll be offering a self-paced class for healthcare providers titled, Self-Preservation in Practice. In a nutshell, the class will help you create a tool that you can use to manage the stress that’s unique to your profession.
