Feeling connected and comfortable with your therapist is an essential part of treatment and healing. Using a relational approach, I try to create an environment that helps people work on deeply personal and challenging issues. My particular areas of interest and experience include grief and loss, relationships, depression, anxiety, ADHD, adolescent and parenting issues, and identity/sexuality issues. I recently published my first book on sibling loss, "Surviving Sibling Loss: The Invisible Thread that Connects Us Through Life and Death." (Available on Amazon)

Do you find yourself unhappy in your current relationship with self or others, or have you forgotten what it means to “be yourself?” Maybe it’s that you don’t feel safe in your body or with emotional intimacy, or that you feel disconnected from who you are. You’re thinking that therapy will help, but what do you need? Is it skills to get through the day? To overcome past trauma or current family conflict? To feel more connected to yourself and others? Maybe that’s the hope you have for yourself or your teen and why you want to start counseling, but you need something more than accessing and understanding emotions, you want change.

I offer clients calmness, compassion and the belief all can be helped because you have the motivation to call a therapist and want to change. . Change is painful for most of us, but it doesnt need to stop us from living a full life. Neuroscience gives us great hope knowing we can change the pathways in the brain. Therefore, the thoughts and feelings can become unstuck. My clients, whether they are a couple, individual or adolescent, tell me I am easy to talk to, and the homework, I suggest they do, brings results.

My education background grants me insight into working with children, especially adolescent girls.
The idea that one learns by experiencing and is truly capable of making the necessary shifts in their lives is a mantra I live by. When one person mirrors another with gentle listening, others are able to clearly see what no longer works in their lives. Ingrained habits coming from difficult childhoods could be the very source of havoc, that with conscious awareness, can shift. Perhaps the way one communicates is keeping love from flowing in your life. Maybe parenting a child who reminds you of yourself means confronting yourself on a deeply personal level. Or perhaps it is simply a life transition that is simply too much.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Sacramento and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
