For the last 10 years, I’ve been working as a therapist with diverse populations in a variety of settings.  I currently work only with individual adults in my private practice.  My training includes analytic, psychodynamic, transpersonal theories.

I see my education and training as an ongoing process. I continue to learn as much as I can about different ways to understand and help people change their lives for the better.


Training and Consultation


I am available as a Clinical Consultant in my areas of speciality and as a generalist.  I work from psychoanalytic, pscyhodymanic, and relational perspecitives.

As a Private Practice Business Consultant to therapists looking to build their ideal practices, I offer:

  • Thinking through “next steps” in your development as a therapist (education, training opportunities, selecting a consultant or supervisor, etc.).
  • Getting started in Private Practice: practical, professional and personal challenges
  • Working within a functional clinical framework as part of building a robust practice
  • Writing your website in a way that speaks directly to your audience and communicates who you are as a clinician
  • How to build and maintain your ideal practice using your already existing strengths


Clinical Training and Presentations

I provide clincial training for therapists on Money, Meaning and Psychotherapy.  This is an in depth look at the ways in which issues of money (client’s, therapist’s and influnce of larger society) impact the clinical work.
