“My office hours are Monday and Thursday evenings.

I am familiar with New Landscape and I feel passionate about working with and helping people who have a history of trauma and who have MPD/DID. I have worked with all kinds of people including artists, refugees, immigrants, the LGBT population and war veterans.

I am easygoing, create a safe and accepting space, and I am good at getting attuned to all parts of my patients. Together, we can work on helping you gain a greater awareness of your inner life, including your thoughts, energy, feelings, and beliefs. We can help you with sorting out and working through your feelings about yourself and others and with improving interpersonal communication, emotional self-regulation and stress management. We can work on challenging unhelpful and self-sabotaging ways of thinking and behaving that tend to originate in the past and that can keep you stuck in the past. Finally, we can help you with improving overall functioning and setting and reaching realistic goals.”
