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.

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.
