I enjoy working with individuals, families, and couples strengthening self-reliance, self-awareness, familial as well as relational bonds. During these times, therapy has its challenges and can be quite confusing. This is especially true for younger children. Through the use of telehealth, I do what I can to make therapy a comfortable experience.

I am a psychologist experienced in helping children, teens and adults. My experiences in the mental health field began in 1981 and include working with the seriously mentally ill, treating traumatized children, and working with the oppressed. These experiences have taught me the importance of maintaining compassion for others even when they are in extreme states or are easily wounded. Working with different cultures has taught me to respect the world view and values of others. My background helps me to understand struggles of all types with a greater depth and sensitivity. All problems, worries and concerns are significant and deserving of a serious approach.

If you struggle with anxiety or depression, you know how difficult it can be to cope. Anxiety is easy to recognize. We worry more, avoid difficult situations, and feel tense, awkward, or ineffective. Depression feels exhausting and hopeless. We judge ourselves and other people harshly, feel intense sadness, and become passive. It can feel like we can't do anything right or that things never go our way. Imagine being more active, skilled, and competent, communicating more effectively in relationships, being more productive at work or school, and feeling more satisfied with life.

Have you been through a traumatic experience and find it’s had a lasting impact? Or maybe like so many of us, you grew up with adversity or intergenerational trauma? A greater sense of peace and a healthier way of relating to the world are obtainable. You have the innate ability to heal. Let’s walk together down a path that will help you re-tell your story as that of a victor having survived tough stuff, rather than that of a victim. I find people in two places with healing: one is that of willingness to better cope with life and the other is that of readiness to process trauma in small, safe doses, balanced with soothing exercises.

Many of us have aspects of ourselves that have previously been abandoned, traumatized, or ignored. We want to safely explore and lovingly restore these parts but we don’t always know how. You may be considering therapy to safely explore your experiences in an empathetic, caring, and compassionate container. Some of the personal challenges that I work with clients on are those arising from periods of major life transitions where one is feeling like the ground is shifting under one’s feet and life feels unstable. Other difficulties that clients see me for are feelings of depression and anxiety as well as for symptoms from trauma.
