Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance.

Dealing with depression, anxiety or stress can be overwhelming — it isn’t easy to do. Every one experiences “ups and downs” in life but some “downs” can be more problematic than others. Let me help you. I offer compassionate and honest help for: repetitive relationship problems, difficult with emotional intimacy or closeness, problems at work or school, periods of marked depression or anxiety, over-consumption of alcohol or drugs, compulsive or addictive use of a computer, phone, tv, shopping, food, exercise, work or obsessive thinking and vulnerability to self injurious or self-sabotaging behaviors.

I’ve enjoyed working as a psychologist for over 20 years and my clients teach me a great deal as they trust me with their therapeutic process. The vulnerability and confidence they share with me is a privilege and a gift, as well as a deep responsibility. I realize that making the decision to see a therapist is often a long and challenging one. It’s scary to ask for help and my goal is to help you feel as safe as possible, while working through the concerns that you need assistance with. I provide HIPPA Compliant Video sessions for all clients, so you can have therapy sessions from the comfort and privacy of your home or office

Do you feel weary of the constant parade of "failed" relationships that show up in your life? Would you like to discover the secret to attracting and keeping a healthy committed relationship? If you answered "yes" to these questions, you have come to the right place. I have 25 years of experience in helping people just like you to understand how the patterns of unhealthy relationships are laid down very early in life. Relationships are like a "dance" in which each partner performs their "steps". Becoming aware of your "steps" means you can change them, and reap amazing rewards.

I have been a therapist and director of counseling programs for several years. I specialize in adults, women’s issues and couples’ therapy. I listen well, draw from theory and practical life experience to understand what my client is experiencing. I also consider what social pressures or situations impact your thinking/emotional states and what therapeutic approach might be most helpful. I take into account the client's unique human diversity, personal development, and spirituality. Together, we select the most achievable goals and work toward those.

My diverse training at UCSC, USF, Stanford University, Fremont Hospital, and as Program Director at Center For Discovery, specializing in treatment of adolescents struggling with eating disorders , has helped me to be sensitive to cultural differences, knowledgeable about a wide array of mental health struggles, and that providing a quality and comfortable relationship, is integral.
I can attest,having worked with many clients over the years, I have witnessed time and time again the true value that a psychotherapeutic relationship can provide. Through hard work, growing authenticity, and commitment, a therapeutic relationship brings forth genuine opportunities for new & useful insight, new eye opening perspectives, the application of new and working coping skills, a freedom from debilitating challenges like anxiety, panic, depression, a renewed & focused life plan, significant transformational changes, and more. Therapy can have a significant impact, once you make the powerful decision to seek treatment, and develop new belief that life can be different.

Working with eating disorders is one of my favorite parts of my practice.
Many times the reaction I get when people find out what I do is "Isn't that depressing?" Actually, it's the opposite: challenging, yet inspiring and very fulfilling. I love helping people move from pain and frustration to hope and new ways of living that work better. I work alongside you, to help you find your solutions, your strength, to make positive change happen in your life.
