I have over 20 years of experience providing mental health services to children , adolescents, and adults in individual therapy. It takes real courage when someone asks for help or looks for support and it’s a privilege to be able to offer my services and not a request that is ever taken lightly. When working with youth in particular, one thing I know to be true is that young people are more similar than dissimilar no matter where they come from. They all deserve to be respected and feel valued through a collaborative process where they are the leaders of their sessions.

I have extensive experience in working with children of all ages, & their parents.
My approach is generally solution-focused, and based on the premise that it's easier to make changes based on our strengths than our deficits. My style is down-to-earth, friendly, and collaborative. There is no problem too big that we can’t resolve together in a collaborative style. I build a therapeutic relationship on mutual respect and support people in using their strengths to overcome challenges. I very much enjoy my work and consider it an honor to be invited into the lives of the people with whom I work.

I work with children adolescents adults and families, in individual, play, family, couples and group psychotherapy.
We are all in the process of change, it is an unavoidable element of life. The trick is to have the willingness to look at how we wish to change, and take steps to do so. This may involve simply developing a different perspective on some struggle or other. No matter what the problem is though it takes courage, to allow another person to see our vulnerability. With that willingness there are very few problems which cannot be significantly improved or solved. Encouragement from a person who understands what we struggle with can help empower us to take action to feel better and be happier..

Positive Psychology is a valuable tool for reaching new heights, finding one's goals, and feeling supported during challenging times. A trusted psychologist tries to remind others of their strengths, how to center, maintain self-regulation and feel more solid in oneself. I specialize in supporting women, college-aged individuals, young women and teens. I have always focused on anxiety and depression and find them quite treatable when one is motivated.

I have over 40 years experience, 20 in the Monterey Peninsula. I believe that the key to most emotional and psychological problems lies in relationships, those in the past and in the present. Learned conscious and unconscious behavior patterns can cause difficulties in life, and these behavior problems can be changed or modified. My approach is eclectic, utilizing Gestalt Therapy, psychodrama, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Therapy, and other modalities within a psychodynamic framework. I work with adults, adolescents, couples, and families. I see people who are depressed, stressed, anxious, or who are having relationship or sexual problems.

Over the past 14-years I have had the privilege of working to help youth, families, and adults suffering from symptoms of anxiety, behavioral problems, depression, dissociation, grief, relationship problems, and trauma. All the clients I have worked with have several things in common: social, emotional, and/or behavioral problems that lead to an impairment in their ability to function and to suffering; a desire to reduce their experiences of suffering; the courage to share their personal stories in therapy; and a willingness to try something different.
