Registered Psychotherapist, PB614
Member New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists (Full)
USA-Registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist-NAAP (New York)
Licensed Clinical Social Worker (New York State)
I am a Psychotherapist at Ponsonby Therapy Centre, and have achieved NZ Psychotherapist Registration through PBANZ based on my New York Psychotherapy credentials.
I have 36 years of extensive clinical experience as a psychotherapist, 24 years in New York (USA) and 12 years in New Zealand in both mental health agencies, and private practice.
I work collaboratively and respectfully. Together we will discover what prevents you from having the life that you would like to have. We will learn what gets in your way; how those problems came to be; and how to make changes so that those things no longer continue to get in your way. You will become better resourced to deal with life’s problems as they come along, and enjoy your life more fully.
People come to me to work on a variety of problems including: depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, low confidence/self-esteem and assertiveness problems, sexual identity issues and parenting difficulties. I work with both individuals and couples. Low cost couple counselling is available.
While I predominantly work in a psychodynamic relational psychotherapy manner, I draw from my additional trainings in Gestalt, Psychodrama, EMDR, and Art Therapy.
