I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from Fielding Institute and am supervised by Paul Becker, PhD.
I work with individuals and couples. My approach is a collaborative one – I know things work better when both people are working together. I am experienced in working with people individually or in couples who are in life transitions, survivors of trauma, catastrophic illness and/or chronic pain, anxiety, depression and/or dissociation. My goal is to help you achieve your goal and move through stuck places, resolve something from the past if need be or change something in the present to be in a stronger, clearer place.
I have authored or co-authored articles and books about child abuse (physical and emotional) and neglect, parenting, nurturing, dissociation, posttraumatic stress disorder, spirituality, the unconscious mind (a subject I am particularly interested in), hypnosis, transference and countertransference. I am a Fellow of the International Society for the Study of Dissociation (ISSD) and was the editor of the ISSD Journal for years. I have presented at international conferences focused on child abuse, dissociation and clinical hypnosis and have won awards for my work in the fields of dissociation, prevention and treatment of child abuse.
