As a lifelong pianist, I notice a strong parallel between the way I accompany and the way I do therapy.  I delight in providing a strong foundation and support for another person to fully express their own “music.”  When I meet with you my priority is to listen so that together we can create a safe atmosphere for your growth and exploration.  As we get to know each other, exploring the issues that brought you to my office, I will integrate a broad array of therapeutic orientations and tools in order to help you move in new directions. These may include CBT, psychodynamic therapy, EMDR, Sand Tray, and Trauma Focused treatment. I value using mindfulness and somatic experiencing, finding it helpful to build mind-body-spirit connections. Prior experiences in mediation, school social work, substance abuse, and teaching piano to adults and children also inform my practice as I help clients navigate relational issues, anxiety, trauma, behavioral or emotional difficulties, chronic pain, life transitions, loss and depression. I work with children, adolescents and adults. In addition to doing therapy and making music, I love reading, gardening, walking in the woods, and spending time with my husband and our two adult children.
