I work with children, adolescents, and adults in individual, couple and family therapy addressing the myriad issues that arise during the course of the human life cycle. It is my intention to help bring healing on deep levels to each client who enters my practice. I bring a mature, experienced perspective to my work, integrating years of my own personal work and professional training. I view each person with whom I have the privilege to work as an emotional, physical and spiritual being and use client centered, humanistic, transpersonal approaches, combined with a psychodynamic lens.

My preference is to incorporate a variety of modalities including psychodynamic , attachment-based, dialectical-behavioral, and cognitive-behavioral approaches to best suit your needs.
Do you find yourself stuck in a rut or in a pattern of behaviors that no longer serve you? Are you having a difficult time navigating complex emotions or processing a challenging past experience? I am here to help you make sense of all of life’s challenging aspects. If you have been considering seeking therapy for a while, but have been anxious about the process, I welcome you. This step you have taken requires courage and self-reflection. It is not a step that many take.

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.

I am trained in many treatment orientations, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic approaches, humanistic and existential psychotherapy, EMDR, stress-reduction techniques, creative visualization, and dreamwork.
My approach to my clients is warm, open, and accepting, and, at the same time, I am ready and willing to provide direct and honest feedback. I enjoy bringing a sense of humor and creativity, as well as strong professional ethics to my work. While my initial goal is to work together with my clients to relieve depression, anxiety, trauma, and other problems, ultimately I work with the whole person to develop and utilize his or her strengths to find balance and self-acceptance and to become more open to deeper experiences of love and joy.

I provide psychodynamic treatment which helps clients uncover a deeper awareness of themselves and cultivate lasting change.
Therapy is an investment in yourself and it can impact the trajectory of your life. We all experience symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief and overwhelm from time-to-time but you don't have to navigate those dark times alone. We don't heal in isolation; struggles become more bearable when they are companioned by someone who helps you clear a path toward the life you want to live. During sessions we will identify and challenge dysfunctional patterns, investigate the impact of family history, build resilience, and identify your strengths while expanding your repertoire of healthy coping skills.

We all develop a set of skills to cope and survive when we are young. This is the beauty of our adaptiveness and our innate pursuit of love, safety, and connectedness. However, for most of us, there reaches a point in life where the skills that once allowed us to survive are now preventing us from living the life we imagined. If you are feeling disconnected and discontented with yourself, your life, and/or your relationships, do not lose hope. It is possible to identify and adapt the patterns that you developed to keep yourself safe and attached.

My approach is to create an accepting, supportive, non-judgmental partnership in order to help my clients discover their strengths, inner resources, and to achieve a deeper understanding of who they are. This work will help you to overcome or more effectively deal with such problems as anxiety, depression, anger, stress, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and attention deficit disorder. We work together to identify self-defeating thought patterns or unconscious defenses that might be getting in the way of your natural capacity for satisfying relationships, or the full and authentic expression of who you are.

We all have behaviors and beliefs that stem from our early years. Then life happens, we do the best we know how, and we get stuck. Healing from past trauma, building more satisfying partner intimacy, communicating more effectively with your families, lovers, or peers, or learning to be grounded and empowered in your true Self, I'm committed to helping you make positive changes in your life and in your relationships. In addition to working with individuals, I welcome the challenge of helping couples release their unhealthy patterns, learn to really listen and be heard, and create a fresh, shared vision as partners in life.

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 welcome anyone who is looking to enhance and make meaning of their life. Unhealed wounds of abandonment, abuse, betrayal, loss and neglect lead to feelings of shame and fear, which keep you from having the relationships, resources and overall life experience that you want. I have expertise in identifying these core sources of pain, healing those wounds, understanding how they currently impact your life and, of course, changing those life patterns so you can experience something new!

I believe that the relationship between me and my "special friend" facilitates growth and healing. I offer a COMPLIMENTARY FIRST SESSION to see if we can take a meaningful journey together. My goal in therapy is to help individuals develop a more positive self-image, increase self-esteem, and reach their full potential. I help the people I work with to identify their needs and increase their ability to communicate their needs and feelings to others - thereby developing more loving relationships. This will lead to a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

There are times in life when our paths lead us off course and we find ourselves struggling with serious issues like negativity, depression, worry, anxiety, interpersonal relational issues, difficulty with co-workers or unfulfilling marriages. Some of us struggle with unresolved trauma from our past, leaving us feeling distant, disconnected and alone. No matter how difficult your current situation seems, I believe that it is always possible to get back on track and feel better. In my years specializing in domestic violence, eating disorders and trauma related therapy, I have helped individuals, couples and families overcome multiple obstacles.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Carmel, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
