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.

Our lives are filled with challenges, large and small. The best of these expose us to the power and vulnerability of our humanity. Facing these challenges can make for positive, at times life-affirming experiences. At other times, these challenges can be daunting or scary. The thought of confronting them leaves us stuck, anxious or fearful. In extreme cases, we may be rendered emotionally unstable - our psyches overwhelmed - unable to live in accordance with our typical, everyday lives. We question everything - our values, our purpose. Pushed to the edge of or beyond our limits, we feel small, alone, unlovable, unworthy.

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).

I help people come home to themselves. Life's challenges can leave us questioning our intuition and values and impact our self-worth, relationships, and well-being. Perhaps this is due to a difficult upbringing, perhaps due to trauma and loss, or it may be due to external stressors such as marginalization and oppression. I help clients to find their voice, re-discover self-trust, uncover inner wisdom, and cultivate strength and balance. Together we will explore your experiences, nurture inner resources, and identify and resolve destructive patterns that impact your relationships.

My approach to therapy is relational. I believe the problems that lead people to therapy are often interpersonal in nature and I see the therapeutic relationship as the primary agent of change. I endeavor to create with my clients a relationship that does not repeat the problematic relational patterns that led them to therapy. I use the therapeutic relationship to show clients that different and more satisfying interpersonal outcomes are possible. I also draw upon an existential approach to help clients accept responsibility for their role in creating themselves, their relationships and their experiential world.

To be happy and free of suffering ... this is the experience of effective therapy. When we're witnessed, deeply understood and guided to our true self, the challenges of being human can become magical. Blending multiple clinical orientations I work with the client's whole being - mind, body & spirit - to discover his/her own unique truths and capacities. Because so much of who we are is a function of our relationships, I gravitate toward couples, families and groups, teaching people how to relate to themselves and each other with refreshing honesty and authenticity.
