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.

Most people experience anxiety, depression, and a multitude of self, relational, and financial stressors in daily life. Though these experiences are normal for most people now, I hope to help children and adults realize their potentials through goals, hobbies, and processing any emotional or physical burdens that may arise. Coping skills such as thought balancing exercises can be very helpful as well. My approach is warm, connected and fun, yet honest and serious when and if needed. I like helping people focus on their specific strengths and weaknesses in order to begin to help make more positive overall life choices and changes.

My orientation is grounded in cognitive behavioral theory, which means that a foundation of our therapy will be a focus on the influence of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors on emotional and physical well-being. We will pay particular attention to the bi-directional relationship between the stress response and physical symptoms of illness, an orientation sometimes called “mind-body medicine".

Life unfolds only rarely according to plan, and even when it appears our plans succeed, that lasts until they do not. Often as humans we do not fully understand what goes wrong or how to help ourselves or others. As a therapist, with much life, relationship and business experience, I am especially well prepared to join clients at every "crossing point". I know how to help others to survive, activate resiliency, to uncover and to clear what holds them back, and also help others to accept what must be accepted. Finally, I help others no matter what the circumstances, to thrive again, or in many cases, to do so for the first time.

Many challenges we experience in daily life relate to conflict between parts of ourself. Each part reflects our body’s own loving attempts to care for us in the best ways it knows. When we shift one part of this feedback loop, the whole system rearranges. This is what makes transformation possible. My approach to therapy is client-centered and eclectic. I start with creating a non-judgmental, inclusive space for you to come as you are. As we form and reach for your goals, our work may include body awareness, mindfulness practices, trauma modalities, behavior/communication coaching, and treating all parts of a system holistically.

Alzheimer's (Dementia) Therapists
A progressive neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimers Disease slowly destroys an individual's memory, judgment, cognition and eventually ability to function. It represents an enormous burden on victims of the disease and their family alike.

Alzheimer's is characterized by memory loss, language deterioration, impaired ability to mentally manipulate visual information, poor judgment, confusion, restlessness, and mood swings.

Alzheimer's usually begins after age 65, but its onset may occur as early as age 40, appearing first as memory decline and, over several years, destroying cognition, personality, and ability to function. Confusion and restlessness may also occur. The early symptoms of AD, which include forgetfulness and loss of concentration, can be missed easily because they resemble signs of natural aging.

If you're looking for help for a friend or mother or father with alzheimer's in Santa Barbara or for a Santa Barbara alzheimer's therapist, these professionals provide alzheimer's help, alzheimer's therapy, alzheimer's counseling and alzheimer's treatment. They include alzheimer's therapists, alzheimer's psychologists and alzheimer's counselors. Therapists can help with testing for alzheimer's or diagnosis of alzheimers in Santa Barbara.
