People often ask me “How can you do the work you do? Aren’t you sad all the time?” Although I bear witness to great pain and struggle I am continually reminded of the strength and resiliency of human beings. My clients continue to teach me the art and beauty of being human.

I have Post Graduate training in Internal Family Systems, “IFS” (
www.selfleadership.com), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, “EMDR” (www.emdr.com) and Somatic Experiencing “SE” (www.traumahealing.com) These are all therapies that enable people to heal from the symptoms of emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. As our work progresses, I will explain these modalities and hopefully you will see how they can be helpful in your healing.

I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from Loyola University in 1999, and my Undergraduate Degree from The University of Michigan in Art History in 1984.

When I’m not in my therapy office I can be found in my studio painting abstractly with oils. I also love riding my bicycle, cross country skiing and being in nature. I’m a mom to two twenty-something daughters and a beagle named Riley.
