I work with children, from preschool through teens, families, and adults. Young children often manifest their emotions and experiences through their behavior, and I use art therapy , play therapy, sandtray techniques, and a positive, warm connection to help work through and translate their inner experience. With older children and adults, I personalize the therapeutic sessions using a blend of art therapy , sand tray, and traditional talk therapy to explore and transform areas of difficulty.

I also have a background in art therapy and sandtray.
I believe patients come to us because they feel grief, anxiety, depression and traumatized or alienated from themselves and others. The suffering you experience comes in many forms and you do not always have the words to say what you feel. I specialize in working with adults and adolescents whom have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, creative blocks, ADHD, chronic somatic pains and/or are experiencing grief and loss. I also work with couples and families. I have a specialization in expressive arts therapy and sandtray for those who may have difficulty expressing their feelings, memories and experiences through verbal means.

I specialize in working with ADHD, HSP, and ASD. Being in our bodies- and being in our world- can be very difficult. This is especially true when when you're a highly sensitive person. My typical client often hears "you're being too much" while also dreading the feeling of not "being enough". I'm here to take a deep dive into what's making you feel like "too much" and highlight the ways you are "just enough for the right people". Typically, my client's goals are to live more comfortably in their sensitive skin, find liberation from shame, and better manage depression and anxiety.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, stuck in unhelpful patterns, or generally dissatisfied with life, you are not alone. The rates of anxiety and depression continue to rise as we are bombarded by implicit and explicit messages that we are not enough, and then expected to thrive in fast-paced, competitive environments. Whether you are experiencing the first signs of emotional distress or have been struggling with problematic symptoms for years, therapy can help.

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that may have minimized your self-esteem. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be. I hold a container of acceptance in the therapy room, while searching for its meaning and resolution.

Where has all the fun gone? Does that seem like an irrelevant question when we are drowning in troubles? Or could it be the essential one? When we lose ourselves to conditioned fear and pain and self -limiting beliefs, we lose that crucial access to our authentic desires, needs and natural creative power. Through play and wonder we can rediscover these buried treasures and permit them to guide us on a course of deep choice-rich fulfillment.

I am a clinical psychologist based in Walnut Creek, CA. My graduate and postgraduate training included most major approaches to psychotherapy. When I begin psychotherapy with someone, my intent is to work in partnership with you. My style is one of active collaboration. Only with both of us involved, sharing our thoughts and ideas, can a safe and effective working environment develop. Change isn't easy. If it was, you might not be thinking about therapy.
