), and have experience working with folks from a multitude of backgrounds (socioeconomic status, ethnicity, religion, LGBTQ , etc.
If you're searching for a therapist, it is likely that an event, situation, or challenge came up that has prompted you to make a change in your life. If so, I believe that therapy can provide a supportive, safe space from which to gain deeper understanding of yourself and your challenges, and to make small but steady changes in your life that increase your ability to cope with these challenges. I'd love to speak with you further if you are ready to make that step!

My clinical focuses include: identity development, anxiety, depression, relationship/interpersonal difficulties, multicultural counseling (affirmative, competent therapy with POC), and I specialize in working with LGBTQ clients.
We sometimes hit points in our life where we need extra support to examine ourselves/our relationships, acquire new skills/perspectives or learn how better cope through a difficult time. It can be intimidating to take this step in exploring your life and working towards change, and I want to make that journey as safe and beneficial as possible. I view therapy as an exploration process, where client and therapist collaboratively work together to create insight and positive change.

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 enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and members of the LGBTQ population to help you on your path toward living a happier, more satisfying life. In over nineteen years of experience as a therapist I have successfully helped people cope with anxiety, depression, addiction, co-dependency, foster care, adoption, grief and loss, phase-of-life changes, and issues related to spirituality. I am sensitive to the ways cultural factors - ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status - affect our emotional and mental well-being, an awareness that is strongly incorporated into my work.

I also work with people suffering from depression, anxiety, emptiness, loneliness, trauma, grief, individuation, the LGBT community, experienced working with veterans and their families, as well as sexual issues (talk therapy not sex therapist).
If you're "sick and tired of being sick and tired," feel empty, lonely, sad, wonder who you are, where you're going or other issues, I can help you as a teletherapist. Supportive psychotherapist, hypnotherapist and life coach, talking with you, not at you, respecting your inner wisdom and the choices you make. No problem is too big or too small. In private practice since 1990.There are no judgments just solutions. Learn who you are not who you're supposed to be. For twenty-six years I've been working with individuals, couples, relationship issues: finding one, changing one, saving one.

Life satisfaction is directly linked to how we cope with life's challenges. When we participate in escapist behavior (drinking too much, overindulging on sugar, avoiding confrontation, Netflix binges), we can feel stuck and hopeless. We get caught in these painful ways of coping because they work - at least temporarily. I specialize in helping clients get unstuck by incorporating brain-based education, support and practical suggestions for change.

We all have the right to feel happy in love, life and work. Sometimes we don't understand why we are not at peace and therapy can help us gain that perspective. Psychodynamic psychotherapy helps us look deeply into who we are and allows us to understand the root causes of our feelings. When we learn why we feel and act the way we do, it is easier to make lasting change. Using a warm, flexible collaborative approach, we will work together to help you become more knowledgeable about yourself and make the long term changes you desire.

We all face challenges in our lives and sometimes need extra help and support to help us overcome them. I offer a safe, judgement-free space to explore even the most difficult matters. My style is relational and collaborative. One of the most important aspects for achieving success in therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. I believe that you are the expert on yourself and your family and that you hold the key to achieving the life you want to live.

Are you in a "caterpillar stage" of life? You sense that you could be more, but you find yourself limited by negative thoughts and/or overwhelming emotions. Or are you in a "chrysalis stage"? Your whole life seems to have disintegrated into nothing recognizable, and you are struggling to make sense of it all. From a foundation of empathy, acceptance, compassion, and respect, I provide a safe and supportive environment in which to grow and/or heal. I work from a "client-centered" approach that helps you find your own answers and healing from within.

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.

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.

It takes courage to contact a therapist. Just calling or e-mailing me tells me you are ready and have the courage to do the important healing work therapy can provide. When you work with me you can expect that I will be compassionate and will provide a "safe harbor" for you to be yourself. You might be going through a hard time that you can't find your way through, a loss or a life-transition. It is my job to help put you at ease while teaching you skills and showing you options for feeling better and more in charge of your life.

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.
