I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from Fielding Institute, Psychology Assistant supervised by Paul Becker, PhD.
I work primarily with individuals and couples. My approach is collaborative – I know transformative processes work better when all people are working together energetically. I am experienced in working with people individually and in couples who are in life transitions or relationship difficulties, who are survivors of trauma, catastrophic illness and/or chronic pain, anxiety, depression and/or dissociation. I work with people who would like to make their lives better.
My goal is to help you move through a stuck or a difficult place, resolve something from the past if need be or change something in the present to be in a stronger, clearer place for your own growth and development.
I have written a book Breaking The Cycle of Child Abuse and co-authored The Nurturing Program for Parents and Children with Stephen Bavolek, PhD. Throughout the years, I have written and co-written (with Peter Barach, PhD, Catherine Fine, PhD, Paul Becker, PhD) 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 many 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.
