“In all Chaos, there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order ”
– Carl Jung

“A happy life is one which is in accordance with its own nature.”
– Lucius Annaeus Seneca

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been providing depth-oriented psychotherapy for adults and children since 2000.  I offer my patients depth-oriented psychotherapy because I believe it can provide the most profound and long-lasting benefits to one’s mental and emotional wholeness and well-being. It facilitates not only symptom relief but aides in the very meaningful task of one becoming more fully and truly who one is.

My work is informed by many psychological theories. In particular, I find inspiration and useful ideas from Jungian and contemporary psychoanalytic perspectives, as well as from attachment theory and neuroscience. I often work with dreams and other symbolic material including the use of art and Sandplay, if a patient is interested in working with these means.
