provide psychotherapeutic mental health counseling to individuals and couples
using both conventional and more spiritually-oriented approaches.
specialize in the use of imaginal dialogue, a technique that draws upon the
client’s imagination to provide precisely what s/he needs to move through
specific areas of work.
dialogue happens when we enter our imaginations and interact with whomever or
whatever we encounter there. Children engage in imaginal dialogue when they “make
believe.” When adult clients use imaginal dialogue, deep and transformative
healing can occur. For example:
mother struggling with the loss of a child is finally able to grieve when she
holds him one last time in an imaginal dialogue, and has the chance to say
and hear what had been left unsaid.
woman coming to grips with having been sexually abused in childhood is finally
able to confront her perpetrator in an imaginal dialogue where she is protected
by a fierce and loving lion.
man who is pushing through social anxiety and panic attacks experiences a profound
sense of safety and well-being when comforted by an imaginal angel.
overachiever who has recently retired feels lost without a job to go to each
In imaginal dialogue he reconnects with the energetic boy he once was and
relearns how to enjoy days of relaxation in the out-of-doors.
earned both PhD and LMSW from the School of Social Welfare at the University at
Albany in Albany, New York. My doctoral research focused on the
psychotherapeutic use of imaginal dialogue, and my dissertation on the subject
earned the University at Albany Distinguished Dissertation Award in 2010.
