I specialize in mood disorders, relationships, grief & loss, self-identity, Veganism, chronic illness , GLBTQ issues, mindfulness & self-empowerment.
One of my greatest passions in life is my work as a therapist. With warmth, humor and compassion, I help others to heal and move forward in their lives. Perhaps, you are feeling "stuck"- overwhelmed by relationship issues, career, loneliness, anxiety or depression. Maybe, coping with life's daily stresses is getting you down, making it increasingly difficult to find & experience meaning and joy. These are difficult times, difficult issues, & sometimes it's hard to get through them alone.

As a therapist, my goal is to help people find healthy and successful ways to heal from the past and grow into the best version of themselves. I believe that we are all seeking to live purpose filled lives and want healthy relationships with those we love. Though this can be challenging, my passion is walking with people to a point of fulfillment and ultimately, to a point where my clients no longer need me. Through consistent work in therapy, using a variety of individualized techniques and therapeutic modalities, it is my hope that my clients truly feel supported and empowered.

It is my joy to work with teens, college students, adults and seniors. Common within these periods of life can be intense life transitions, loss and change. The journey through these stages can be full of tremendous amounts of pain, but are also unique opportunities to grow and develop new coping skills and strengths. I specialized in working with clients facing anxiety and pain due to loss, change, or trauma with a strength based approach.

As human beings we can develop painful, dysfunctional habits that keep us from connecting fully to self and others. At those times an objective therapist using a variety of approaches can help reconnect with self and others in healthier, more collaborative ways. I know that strong, collaborative interpersonal relationships provide the healing force for our emotional wounds and other stressors. Target populations: couples, children and teens struggling with life situations, Gender Identity and transitions; firefighters and police officers experiencing acute and chronic stress related symptoms at work and home.

The body carries the legacy of trauma and attachment dynamics in habits of movement, posture and nervous system regulation that can keep us stuck in the past. Therapeutic engagement doesn't have to be dysregulating and overwhelming. You shouldn't leave a therapy session feeling worse than you did when you showed up. Unfortunately, traditional talk therapies can inadvertently trigger your nervous system into survival mode. If we aren't tracking and recognizing what is happening underneath the words, therapy can feel excruciating, especially if there is a history of trauma at any stage of development.

Helping others in chaos and finding order is a path that is very comfortable for me to navigate. As a Life Coach/Professional Organizer, my passion is to help people create an improved quality of life and a healthy environment through organizing. It can be overwhelming when clutter starts taking over the physical space but it also diminishes the mental and emotional state of individuals causing paralysis and stagnation. My ability to see the potential, which guides the work I do with individuals, helping them understand where they are at the present moment and then giving them the direction to create results.

Emotional healing can feel overwhelming. I see my role, mainly, as a guide through conflicting emotions and body experiences. The goal is to activate our own inner wisdom and the body's natural instinct to heal. Holistic psychotherapy is a fresh approach that combines ancient wisdom with modern psychotherapy. It utilizes a customized, eclectic approach tailored to, and led by, client needs, interests and beliefs. I am currently taking adults and teens struggling with; chronic/ acute pain, difficult life transitions/ changes, healing (large or small, past or current) traumas, grief, sadness, anxiety, phobias, depression and more!

Do you struggle on the inside, even if others see you as capable? Maybe you criticize yourself or think you should be achieving more. I work with people who are successful in some areas and not in others. They may be frequently frustrated, disappointed, ashamed, or even angry, but they don’t know why. So they beat themselves up, hide their pain, and often give up on their dreams. As a therapist, I help my adult and adolescent clients discover how to respect, trust, and care for themselves, so they can live life fully again.

Has your QUALITY OF LIFE diminished. Any transition, no matter how big or small is easy to manage on your own. We are social beings and need support and comfort from those around us. Sometimes this necessary support is not readily available within our usual relationships, and/or sometimes we may not feel heard or understood by those close to us. I believe you have all the answers within you, but may be missing some of the key factors that are known to help us navigate and cope with the stresses of life.

We are all capable of learning to better navigate life's challenges. During these unprecedented times of stress and uncertainty, relational therapy can help. I believe in your capacity to set goals, improve coping skills, feel more secure in relationships, and process trauma. Therapy helps us learn to uncover strengths and regulate emotions so that life feels more manageable. I utilize training in Brainspotting and Mindful Awareness in Body-Oriented Therapy. Techniques in session support healing through trauma-informed interventions that center on mindful co-regulation, narrative therapy, and internal family systems work.

What type of Chico 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Chico?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
