I am interested in working with a diverse client base, however have a particular focus in working with young adults. I enjoy working with individuals who are in the process of self discovery as is common for young people who are learning about themselves and making important life decisions. Also, I have a passion for working with the LGBT (and questioning) community. Helping folks who are in the process of coming out and understanding their gender and sexual identities is an area I’ve specialized in.

I encourage you to listen to that small voice telling you that now is the time for change.

When I began learning about therapy, the first thing that stood out was this statement: “The client- counselor relationship is the most important criterion for effectiveness.” In my experience with Suicide Prevention, Substance Dependence, Transition Aged Youth in Foster care, and Individual & Family therapy I found the statement to be accurate.

My style and approach to therapy is "keeping it real." I believe in providing individuals with real and insightful perspectives in dealing with everyday life problems. I enjoy working collaboratively with individuals to address concerns in their lives that are preventing them from reaching their optimal level. I believe that everyone has their own optimal level and this is just when you are at your best and feeling really good about yourself. I am skilled at working with relationship issues, adolescent developmental transitions, family problems, sports related concerns (self-esteem building and performance), and more.

I want to support you through the hard stuff. You may want to feel more in control of how you feel and cope with the stressors in your life. You may feel discouraged, hopeless or overwhelmed. Maybe you feel so drained emotionally and physically it's difficult finding reasons to get out of bed. It is never easy to address areas of pain, unease, or discomfort. I want you to feel less alone while you learn new ways to build your self-confidence and promote self-respect.

It can be common for many of us to struggle with multiple sources of stress that cause us to feel overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed. Sometimes having experienced traumatic events, unhealthy relationships, or a sense of isolation can leave us feeling disconnected and dissatisfied. Difficult life circumstances can take our feet out from under us and move us off course, taking us further away from the life we want.

Please note: I will not be available for consulting with prospective new clients or others by phone or email until after April 15, 2023. I have 40 years experience helping people feel better about themselves, and working through the pain and self doubt that is holding them back in life. We all need a caring, supportive person at times who listens and is genuinely concerned about our well being. When that happens new possibilities for happiness that seemed lost or forgotten can emerge to our delight and relief. For years I've led workshops and conferences at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California on compassion oriented therapy.

To fix a problem you first need to know what the problem is, and self-awareness is key in this process. You are looking for a therapist either because you have found the courage to take a closer look at yourself, or you are looking for help in finding that courage. I will be by your side as you examine whatever stumbling blocks are interfering with your journey at the moment. Together we will look at your structures, beliefs, stories and habits. Are they serving you or are they getting in the way of your growth, relationships and life experience?

Today certainly is a different world we live in. Trying to balance life along with all the adjustments in our current environment can be challenging. However, these challenges can lead us to search for self-improvement and help us prioritize the goals that fulfill our lives and create healthier connections. Therapy isn't always going to be easy, but I believe, provides personal space to explore individual behaviors, change those behaviors that are not serving and discover a variety of personal tools that help you to navigate through life’s difficulties. My philosophy is we get through things, not over them. Are you ready?

The adages are endless: “life isn’t fair”, “bad things happen to good people”, “God/ the universe won’t give you more than you can handle”... it goes on, as you know. Inspirational quotes are readily available on social media, magnets, coffee mugs, and comics. But when you’re ready to work on yourself — or like I say, when you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired — that’s when I come in. Perhaps you’re experiencing anxiety, depression, life changes, or grief. Maybe you are trying to find that right partner, trying to find your place in the community you live in, or trying to survive a trauma.

To become more intimate or connected to others, we need to improve the quality of connection to ourselves. I work with children, teens and adults. I specialize in working with individuals who are seeking personal empowerment in their lives. There are many life events, situations, or relationships that interfere with one's sense of empowerment. When feeling disempowered, one's capacity to access a full self becomes limited.

What type of Benicia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Benicia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
