I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist who has employed drama in my work with traumatized children, adolescents, and adults since 1986 I co-founded The Community Theater of Eilat in Eilat, Israel.  Based on the therapeutic impact I observed in this work, I went on to receive an MA in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Drama Therapy, and extensive study in Somatic Therapy at the California Institute for Integral Studies.

I have been a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist for 20 years.  I maintain a counseling and coaching private practice in John’s Landing, Portland where I specialize in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) , Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Narrative therapy, Somatic therapy, and Creative Arts Therapy to help couples and individuals with trauma and anxiety.

I facilitate a variety of groups including a Men’s Group, Creative Arts/ Somatic Therapy groups, Health & Weight Loss, Couples, and Business Growth Coaching Groups. In my coaching practice I help entrepreneurs grow their businesses and help athletes improve their performance.
