I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I received my training at Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. I received a Master’s degree in Social Services in 1991. I am a member of National Association of Social Workers (NASW). I worked as a clinical social worker in Philadelphia, PA from 1989-1991 then moved to Portland. I received my Oregon licensure in 1995. My training and professional experience has included psychotherapy with couples, adults, children, adolescents and families. I have also worked in psychiatric residential settings and hospital level care for emotionally disturbed youth. In my current practice I work with a range of issues:  parent-child challenges, trauma and stress reactions, sexual abuse, divorce adjustment, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief and loss, attention problems, children of alcoholics, chemical dependency and recovery issues, workplace conflicts, and anger management. My theoretical orientation is varied including Solution-oriented approaches, Cognitive-behavioral therapy, psycho-educational work, Psychodynamic work, Narrative therapy and Family systems treatment.  I use energetic healing techniques extensively in my practice. Among the Energy Psychology approaches I use are: Dynamic Energetic Healing (DEH)®, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT), Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I am a member of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP).
