NOT ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS AT THIS TIME.I am licensed in AZ (#4054) and CA (#30066). My approach currently includes understanding the person's subjective experience of COVID-19/quarantine. In general, I practice a depth approach to Adult Psychotherapy integrated with techniques to manage patient symptoms and help people get their life back to 'normal' functioning. Patients struggling with anxiety, depression, pain, substance abuse (but not severe addiction), relationship conflicts, work related problems, 'transition to adult roles/functions' conflicts, and other mental and behavioral problems have benefitted from treatment with me.

I believe at the core of much of our struggles and pain is the need to be more aware of our feelings which directly impacts our decision making and the subsequent actions that we take. I have spent the last 20 years working with adults and children/teens in hospital, community and school settings. Especially under the current backdrop of social, emotional and financial unrest; feelings of depression, anxiety, anger and feeling out of control can often be familiar. This is a most trying time for our children and adults/parents that are trying to navigate their livelihoods and often feeling the need to be all things for all people.

Some teens didn't get a prom or high school graduation, families have lost their sources of income, adult children have been unable to spend time with their aging parents. Parents have lost their village and are struggling to meet their children's needs by themselves. And still, depression keeps creeping in, anxiety seems to be increasing, relationships are still struggling.

During these times of managing a new reality and dealing with the unknown, many people are grappling with how to cope and are in need of support. Therapy can be a safe place to explore your fears and worries, and also a place where you can learn new coping strategies, while finding hope and healing. Many of us have wounds from the past and often, new traumas can trigger those wounds to re-emerge. However, living the life you deserve is possible. I believe in the power of the human spirit and that it moves us towards healing. In therapy, you can find your way back to our path or create a new one. I see clients only via teletherapy.

Life sometimes throws us a curve ball. Daily life struggles and stress that we have normally handled with relative ease can suddenly seem overwhelming. Too much stress and the inability to handle it properly can begin to undermine our potential to enjoy our work and to care for ourselves and others. Finances, parenting, relationships, school, care taking, health concerns, and loss can be stressful aspects of life. When we begin to internalize these external stressors it can lead to depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, poor health, phsysical/emotional exhaustion and relationship problems.
