As part of Santa Cruz Therapy Collective, I enjoy supporting parents who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and the myriad challenges associated with motherhood. The experience is not always what people anticipate - instead of joy there is worry, insecurity, and overwhelm. By providing perinatal and parenting-specific information, research-based techniques for symptom relief, and flexible session options, I help to normalize these common experiences and improve the family's sense of wellness. Our work together provides relief from suffering, harmony in relationships, and joyful attunement with children.

How do we know what we need? Our nervous systems can become shut down from years of trauma and conditioning to ignore our own needs. By utilizing meditation and somatic integrated awareness, we can deepen our communication within our bodies to meet our true core needs and expand our awareness into true wellness beyond mere survival. No matter what has happened, our true soul within never leaves us and can always be rediscovered. Our soul’s core values can guide us back from darkness and uncertainty.

I am a Jungian psychologist specializing in psychotherapy for depression. Also, I am a licensed psychologist and have been licensed in California since 2002. Jungian psychology can be an effective approach for dealing with a wide variety of psychological problems, but it is particularly effective in working with depression. In general, Jungian psychotherapy helps a person lead a deeper and more meaningful life. Oftentimes symptoms brought into psychotherapy, like depressive symptoms, have deeper, symbolic meanings that encourage a client to grow. Once the purpose of a symptom is understood, the symptom often decreases in severity, or goes away altogether.

"Stuck." At some point in our lives, we all feel it. I help people link their desire for things to be different to the places they feel stuck, healthfully and effectively. You don't need to know how to change, we start with where you are. I like the Chinese proverb, "Acceptance and change are brothers, but acceptance is the older brother." By helping you learn to first accept where you are (even if now it seems impossible), suffering is naturally reduced and there is more energy and room for growth. You get to like yourself now AND change.

Many of my clients come to therapy struggling with worries or anxiety, or during difficult transitions. Some are facing difficulty in their relationships with partners, friends, or family. Others feel down or losing motivation to do the things they use to enjoy. Are you having trouble with work or school and unsure of what's holding you back? Is something that happened in the past still getting in the way? You are not alone. Therapy can help you better understand yourself, your relationships, and your mental health challenges. You can learn skills and tools to overcome these challenges and feel more confident in your everyday life.

The heart of my work is compassion and curiosity. It is my goal to instill these into my clients. I believe each person is innately health seeking. Each of us can find our way off this healthy path for very important and powerful reasons. We work together to understand these reasons with deep compassion. With curiosity we look to discover ways to get back on the path to the healthiest self. I discovered over the past two decades that compassion allows us to move on and that with curiosity new choices emerge which can allow for deep, profound and lasting change.

Perhaps you are feeling stuck, trapped or anxious. Maybe you believe you don't measure up to what you assume others expect of you or what you expect of yourself. These feelings and beliefs frequently indicate aspects in your life rooted in early life trauma that are trying to get your attention, but can feel intolerable and unbearable at times. Growing the ability to connect with the many parts and experiences of your life in a new way could be key. Learning to relate with compassion to the beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and concerns that arise can be an invitation for new understanding, meaning, and creativity.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
