I welcome all clients but those who might benefit most from my expertise are those who are facing medical illnesses, such as cancer or heart disease, or who would like to change their health behaviors. My interest in health psychology began during my 30-year career as a medical journalist (Internal Medicine News, Pediatric News). I completed my training at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, the Family Medicine Residency Program at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, and the Children's Clinic of SB County. Ideally, I will work collaboratively with your physician to help with your integrated medical care.

Whenever people come to see me, I am always impressed by their courage. No matter what the problems are, most everyone enters therapy from a confused and vulnerable space. To do so takes courage. In knowing this, I work to honor their vulnerability and courage. I know that by providing a grounded, attentive, and focused presence to those I work with, trust will occur between us, and we can all be more free to address whatever the pain may be. Without this foundation of trust, I will not be able to effectively help at all.

Relationships move us, give us life, and can even suck the life out of us. We were made for them. That is why I specialize in them -- relationships with friends, family, colleagues, ourselves, our higher power. Properly realigning these problematic, strained, estranged relationships transforms your suffering into purposeful, worthwhile living. Ultimately your fullest life is my goal as your therapist. The greatest gift you can bring to your relationships is you. The best gift you can give the world is your relationships. What will you choose to do with these two important aspects of your one life?

My goal as a therapist is to help you live a happier and more fulfilling life. It is difficult to know if you are on the right path, have healthy relationships, are satisfied with your career, or living up to your potential. How do you feel about where you are headed? These are questions worth asking. I can support your self discovery in a compassionate and understanding way. As a therapist I empower clients struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relationship problems and life transitions. I specialize in working with young women, new moms and couples navigating the transition to motherhood and parenthood.

Each of us passes through struggles that are difficult to cope with. In working together to form a therapeutic relationship we can become healthier and more able to react more skillfully to the challenges that present themselves. My work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families is based off a strong clinical foundation and woven together with compassion, respect and caring. By resolving some of our issues we can become balanced and find improved overall health (mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, emotionally).

For the past 14 years, I've worked with adults struggling with eating disorders and substance abuse disorders. For seven years, I served as the family program director at a treatment center for men with addiction issues. I found this role to be especially helpful because I worked directly with the clients as well as addressed the many challenging dynamics that occur within families. I know that most people who struggle with substance use disorders have a heightened awareness of other people’s emotional states. This can be both a gift and an overwhelming challenge that I can help you to navigate.

Are you feeling anxious or stressed and find it hard to get out of your head? Do you feel consumed with worry? Perhaps you feel stuck in a sad place from a past loss or a present difficulty or feel little hope for the future. These feelings can cause us to isolate and feel misunderstood by others. Many times, people feel beaten down by the world and end up turning their experiences inward, feeding a harsh self-critic who makes us doubt or judge ourselves, taking us away from the power of our inner resources. When we feel disconnected to ourselves, it is harder to build trust to connect to others and the larger world.

My roots as a therapist and healer have seeded over the past thirty-five years, bringing substance and depth to my one-on-one sessions with couples and individuals. During this time, I have maintained a private practice, which has always consisted of process-oriented consciousness work -- a means by which to enter safely and deeply into the inner landscape of the psyche for positive and real world change. My results-oriented approach to psychology is derived from the commitment to a conscious process and the intrapsychic relationship one can access when choosing to turn toward--and look at--oneself.
