Hello, there! I welcome you to my website as you learn more about me and my experience. You may gain a sense of the kind of work I integrate into my practice.

A New York native, I was born on Long Island close to the Atlantic Ocean/Fire Island and not far from NYC. I am newer to the Pacific Northwest and the Portland metropolitan area. There is a wonderful diversity here of landscapes, rivers, waterfalls, and there is something about the presence of Mt Hood, which on a clear day you can see on the way to my office.

I am a Clinical and Somatic Practitioner member of the United States Association for Body Psychotherapy (USABP). For five years I was a regular contributor and columnist for Somatic Psychotherapy Today, a magazine publication of the USABP. Also, I am a Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute approved training assistant presently assisting Beginning I, II and III and Intermediate I, II and III in Portland, Oregon at the World Forestry Center.
