Adult Psychotherapy

"But if you learn to listen, and heed the signals being given, you can bring yourself back on the path you have chosen and have greater abundance and freedom in life."
- John-Roger

"Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion."
- Buddha

As a psychologist, I believe that the therapy relationship should be a secure base for self-exploration and growth. Through my genuine empathy and unconditional acceptance, I provide a safe haven for clients to sort out and develop their thoughts and emotions. You may be feeling anxious or depressed without fully understanding the reasons for your distress. My approach is relational and interactive: I strive to listen carefully and reflect back a comprehensive awareness of your life situation.

In the tranquility of my West Palm Beach office, we work together to attend to your current emotional life and relationships, making connections where helpful with your past history. Clients are able to develop insight and overcome negative patterns of thinking and behaving.

In my experience, effective therapy involves more than just an intellectual understanding of one's issues. The patterns that keep us stuck in life are often deeply rooted in our early emotional experiences, which affect how we view ourselves and others. What is most healing in therapy is the here and now experience a person has in working through issues and conflicts. This can happen only in the context of a safe relationship in which a person feels truly known, understood and accepted. Understanding your experience of the therapy relationship itself can bring greater awareness of your patterns of interacting with self and others. Gradually the therapy relationship leads to a new internal experience, and you begin to have more compassion for yourself.

I help you attend to your inner experience, using experiential techniques such as mindfulness, emotionally-focused, and body-focused psychotherapy.
