I love working with women who want to move beyond trauma, anxiety, narcissistic abuse (parent only-not romantic past or present) and cult recovery. Further, I am passionate about helping women who have children with special needs. I believe that with effort and the right tools women can not just survive but thrive! My practice is in both California and Arizona. I am a designated international Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy teacher having done extensive training from Oxford University in the UK in person. I have been a therapist for over 30 years so I have trained in MANY things!

Are you at a loss of what to do next to help your relationship? Do you feel like you've tried everything to "fix" it? Maybe it seems like every conversation turns into an argument. Perhaps an affair or betrayal has turned your life upside down. Maybe you're realizing you have past wounds that are impacting your current circumstances and you long for the ability to live in freedom without depression or anxiety biting at your heels.

I am looking for clients who want to heal deep wounds as a result of childhood trauma, loss, or grief. I believe we all have an inner knowing that guides us toward empowerment, enlightenment, and a better relationship to self. I also enjoy working with those who are in recovery and in need of additional healing during or after working the 12 steps. Working with couples or individuals based on the Attachment Theory which helps to identify your relationship lens is a strength of mine. Together we can learn how to work within that attachment style in order to obtain a more balanced, reciprocal, and fruitful relationship with others.

I treat individuals, couples and adolescents. I specialize in couple therapy and work on issues of communication, affairs, intimacy, relationship building and divorce transition. People often believe that they are more independent than they truly are on others, less connected and affected by the people in their lives. However, research shows the opposite. It also helps to learn about our emotions. Emotions often are automatic especially when anxiety and stress is high. My work looks at affective neuroscience which integrates the scientific research of brain function and emotions that drive behavior, focus and our relationships with others."
