My commitment to all my clients is to provide empathy, compassion, and curiosity in order to support authentic expression of feelings and needs. The path towards authentic expression is unique to the individual depending on their background, their experience with therapy and their specific therapeutic goals and so I offer various therapeutic interventions to support authentic self expression and healing. I value both the exploration of one's past as well as here and now functioning through mindfulness practice. Using a holistic approach and focusing on the client's strengths and insights, the journey towards wholeness begins.

I believe that anyone can benefit from therapy. Whether you’re facing life’s challenges, experiencing anxiety or depression, or you are just interested in growth and strengthening your sense of self; we all need a neutral person to talk to from time to time.

I am a strength-based psychotherapist committed to the unique process of each client and each therapeutic moment. I work with a balanced approach between a solution-focused, positive psychology and the deeper work of existential, psychodynamic or mindfulness-based interventions. I specialize in life and developmental transitions where symptoms such as anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, or triggered trauma increase in intensity and frequency and threaten that which we cherish. But I view the nagging presence and awareness of our problems as proof that we are ready and capable of dealing with them.

We all have an inner wisdom and interior life that can inform and transform how we hold and participate in the wonder of our lives. I view psychotherapy as a threshold for those seeking a deeper connection to their own experience. Exploring how these mysterious inner resources manifest in the external environment can make it possible to view our lives from a new vantage point. I support individuals to feel more alive, awake and whole in each moment regardless of their circumstances.

I believe that people come into counseling or psychotherapy for a variety of reasons from loss to personal growth. Change and transitions can be difficult. I bring a unique blend of over 25 years of experience as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Professor of Psychology, and California state provider of continue education for therapists and social workers. I believe we are on our path of personal growth. Fear, anxiety, and depression can both slow and inform this process. I work in the here and now, but realize the importance of how our childhood experience has impacted the way we feel, think, and behave.

Are you suffering from the effects of trauma in your life? Are you finding that talk therapy alone is not shifting patterns of mood and behavior? I am a holistic psychotherapist with specialized training in Somatic Experiencing and the Neuro-Affective Relational Model. You may feel as though you don't know who you are any more, that life has become burdensome, or maybe you have the sense that you were never really your authentic self to begin with. Perhaps you experience physiological and behavioral symptoms such as addiction, overwhelm, and isolation. This loss of connection to self/other is indicative of trauma. I can help you.

Thank you for viewing my profile. We live in tense and uncertain times and it's easy to get charged up and react in ways that maybe we shouldn't have. Part of my work is to help individuals and couples reduce emotional reactivity that may be causing problems. I often help people examine thoughts and misperceptions that color the way that we see the world and that effect our relationships. Did you grow up during the Cold War era? Are today's occurances in Europe triggering anxieties that you thought were long past and gone for good? You are not alone.

No matter who you are, we all can benefit from talking to someone who can offer support, practical skills and hope when life gets rough. From these life challenges we learn and grow. I see this as an opportunity to dive into what can sometimes be uncomfortable but what will ultimately set you free. I seek to offer a safe environment where you feel truly heard and seen for who you are. Where your differences are a strength and your challenges are met with compassion and insight. I seek to nurture the spark of passion for life in you so that it grows to a life where you find meaning and fulfillment and even joy.

In our busy lives we often don't have the opportunity or permission to express our deepest fears, the paralyzing effects of shame, disappointments, regrets and confusion. I am a firm believer in creating optimism by encouraging and gently challenging clients to reach for their goals; always looking at possibilities and opportunities.

Besides helping with recent and long-standing concerns or difficulties, therapy can also play an important role in furthering one's personal and spiritual growth. I maintain a diverse practice working with people who seek assistance for a wide range of concerns/hopes related to depression, anxiety, relationships, parenting, self-esteem/self-worth, life transitions, life direction and purpose, trauma, grief, etc.

You've tried to feel better - to improve things - but nothing ever changes and you're right back where you started. I can help. I specialize in helping people to leave behind the struggles, patterns and habits that keep their lives stuck on repeat, opening the door to a life of connection, wholeness and peace.
