The Intuitive Moment


I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC#47196) and practice psychotherapy primarily through a Gestalt, Existential and Phenomenological lens. This approach places an emphasis on self-responsibility, here and now awareness and the client as expert of their own experience. I am particularly interested in self-empowerment as pertaining to issues of oppression, social justice, identity, self-support, loss and grief in individuals, couples and families. In addition, I also consult with organizations where I facilitate interpersonal and group processes.

I bring in extensive experience in working with individuals, families, groups and communities across diverse ethnic, cultural, social and economic backgrounds. I have specialized training in body centered Gestalt therapy and in systems therapy from the Cleveland Gestalt Institute as well as at the Cape Cod based Gestalt International Study Center.

I charge $110 for individuals and $120 for couples or families for a 50 minute session.
