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've also done extensive educational lecturing and have run numerous groups on topics concerning family recovery from substance abuse , parenting issues, and helping young adults (and their parents) with the changes and developmental challenges that are inherent in healthy emotional growth.
My goal is to help empower people to live their lives as fully as possible. I believe we all want to feel safe and understood in the context of our unique histories and present circumstances. However,there are times when everyone gets stuck. We may come to desire help letting go of the pain from our past so we might develop new joyful and productive ways to live our lives now. I've done this work with individuals, couples and families, in private practice and in agencies for the past 27 years.

I work with adults and couples to understand the despair of anxiety, depersonalization, and isolation - the insight into trauma, abuse , and abandonment we develop is often the reason that clients work with me for longer periods of time.
Although most people are depressed or angry at times, they generally find a way to deal with the situation. There are times, however, when a person loses hope or is overwhelmed. They or others decide they might use some help. Sometimes a woman or a man decides that they would like to adjust their life style and emphasize their sense of self. If you work in Silicon Valley, I can use my experience in industry to help you unblock your potential and design effective strategies for greater satisfaction. If you seek spiritual depth, my years as a guide may help unfold meaning.

My perspective embraces self-awareness as one of the main instruments in helping free up trauma. Fuller awareness removes the fear of the unknown, gives us distance from distress and the ability to disconnect from automatic behaviors that perpetuate negative reactions and feelings. In the words of international trauma experts “its teaching our clients how to focus on new stimuli they normally might not have noticed...” with “conscious inhibition of old responses”(Jana Fisher and Pat Ogden, March 2011). The intricacies of our humanness prevents freedom from all depression, anxiety, neurosis and traumatic bodily sensations. Yet.....

Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed, or stressed, or just not like yourself? Are you feeling frustrated in your relationships? Sometimes messages or experiences from the past, faulty beliefs, or challenging relationships keep us stuck and out of touch with our well- being. Couples are helped when each has an opportunity to feel heard, and when early attachment styles and emotions underlying the problem can be better understood.

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.
