Are you suffering from anxiety, depression or the aftermath of trauma? Do you struggle with painful patterns in your life that persist despite your best efforts toward change? Are you nervous to try therapy because of the expense and exposure? Have strong effort and promising insights in previous therapy failed to bring you relief? Are you struggling with a difficult child or teenager and feeling like your good intentions and best efforts are not reaching them? Traditional, insight-oriented therapy may help with such challenges--but if not, behavioral therapy may help, regardless of success with mental insight and understanding.

I will help you create a calm and safe space so you explore your relationships with yourself and others. This safety will help you open up more vulnerable experiences which I can help you process and have a greater insight and relief from your emotional pain. Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) and EMDR and EMDR M (Modified, Laurel Parnell’s training) attachment trauma therapy help you process stuck patterns either from trauma or "negative cycles" with loved ones or with your inner self. These cycles repeat endlessly and can be very distressing. I work extensively with shame and the inner critic to help you settle and open up more

I am dually licensed as an MFT and a Psychologist. I am also a hypnotherapist. I treat many conditions. Depression, Anxiety and PTSD for example. I believe that the therapeutic connection is essential; I respect my youngers as well as my elders. However, I believe that what differentiates a psychotherapist from a paid friend is a mastery of the unconcious. I therefore include in my practice methods that tap into a person's inner knowledge of self: EMDR, Natural Processing, hypnosis, inner child work and Gestalt dreamwork. I see the unconcious as the last frontier, and we are pioneers!

I believe our mutual job is to work together to help you find the best ways of dealing effectively with your problem. Sometimes, although we may know the answers to our problems, we have never been taught the skills to implement that knowledge. Part of my job is to use my expertise and education to teach those skills. For example, we may realize we are being misunderstood by others and work hard to be understood, but no matter how hard we try, nothing changes. Teaching communication skills is one of my areas of expertise that may prove useful.

I have been in clinical practice for 25 years. I have been able to work with people from all walks of life who may be struggling with issues that may either be long-standing or contemporary in nature. Therapy begins with trying to help my clients arrive at clearer conceptualizations as to why they are struggling. The reasons behind the struggle may based in history and/or based on a present challenge. My view is that when one has a more accurate view of the issue, solutions, with therapeutic guidance, tend to follow more naturally.

Having grown up in Davis, I know that it is a unique place. There are strengths and opportunities but also pressures that come in a high-achieving community, especially academic and social. I work with people at their own pace, as everyone is unique and deserves a space to feel is their own.

For many people, standard 12 step-dominated substance use treatment does not work. People may tell you that your problem is a lack of willingness, or that you are in "denial." But maybe you need someone to listen to you rather than talk at you. The fact that these programs do not work for you does not mean that you are not capable of change. It probably just means that you have not found an approach that addresses your individual needs and values.

Therapy sometimes feels intimidating and it might be hard to know where to start. I take a collaborative approach with clients to understand what led to the appointment, what kind of change they would like to see, and what barriers are preventing it. Therapy is a process of finding clarity and adjusting behaviors so that actions and values are aligned. What might sound simple, is rarely easy, and often there may be practical, societal, systemic, legal or cultural barriers that compound the difficulty. Whether goals are emotional, behavioral, relational or health-related, we will find a path forward.

Is the stress of your life overwhelming you? Or has a past experience left you stuck and unable to move forward? You're likely fed up with how anxiety or trauma have crippled your ability to function in everyday life, isolating you from others, and leaving you feeling trapped or hopeless. You might not even remember a time you didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to feel a sense of confidence. You’re ready to experience a sense of ease. Most of all, you’re ready to reclaim a sense of control over your life.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
