Professional Statement

“There are more things in heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” (Shakespeare)

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with 20 years of experience working with adults, couples, children and foster children, as well as active duty and retired military. I have extensive experience working with PTSD and other anxiety and depressive disorders. I am a California transplant from the Northeast, with Italian, European, and Native American ancestry.

I believe we are emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual beings. So I use an intuitive, empathic, yet direct, holistic integrative approach, including the following modalities but not limited to:

* Guided journeying and relaxation techniques

* Somatic (body-focused) interventions

* Storytelling and metaphor

* Jungian perspectives, dream analysis, depth psychology

* Art therapy

* Mother wound and father wound work & psychodynamic

* Qigong

* Tantra

I believe exploring one’s family history including the ancestral lineage – when appropriate – can shed light on old patterns, so sometimes regression work is helpful.

My gifts as an artist and writer bring a perspective that allows the metaphorical and subconscious to arise, with deeper insights and healing. If you’re looking for an “outside the box” and directive approach to therapy, I look forward to speaking with you.
