-- I Provide Telephone Therapy & Videoconference Sessions -- I work best with motivated adults who are committed to working on clearly identified psychological and relationship problems. My clients have tried to solve issues on their own but eventually recognize a need for professional assistance. They realize that therapists have no magical quick cures and that treatment takes courage, persistence and risk-taking. My clients learn that seeking help is a strength, not a weakness. They develop trust in the therapeutic relationship and make lasting gains. I honor each one.

I am passionate about helping tender-hearted and questioning children, teens, and adults , both in person in Santa Barbara and remotely throughout California.
Don’t keep waiting for things to change. If you found yourself here, you may be feeling down, confused, or lost. Perhaps things seem to be going from bad to worse or nowhere at all. You have likely been going it alone, but you deserve better. Seeking therapy can be scary, I know, but won’t it be just as challenging to let everything continue? You need some support, and though things may seem like a lot right now, I know how to help you through this.

And after 14 plus years working in college mental health, another passion of mine is working with adolescents/young adults and their emerging sense of self, identity formation, and potential crises.
Life can often feel painful and challenging, and relationships can be complicated. If you or your teen are in this place where additional support or guidance could be helpful, I am here to offer help and hope. I am passionate about providing a safe and non-judgmental space where understanding and discovery can thrive. My desire is to come alongside of people, collaboratively working towards growth and lasting change. One passion of mine is the journey of motherhood and the various seasons and transitions of maternal mental health - from fertility to pregnancy to postpartum.

I specialize in working with diverse individual adults with a variety of issues.
What if our most challenging difficulties with depressions, anxieties and relationship problems are messages pointing the way to more connection, confidence and aliveness? I work with individuals to transform the avoided places in you to a kinder, wiser relationship with yourself. With over 20 years experience, I am dedicated to helping you have your inner life reflect the outer life you long for, allowing your most genuine self to emerge. Seeing difficulty as an opportunity to rework outdated patterns and unproductive mental habits, one develops a limitless capacity to generate unexpected, imaginative and effective solutions.

I work with adults and adolescents and particularly enjoy working with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender clients.
I specialize in healing relationships with self and other, whether they are painful, confusing, or just plain unsatisfying. If you're "going through the motions," you've lost yourself, your anxious mind is driving you crazy, or if you can't decide whether to stay in that relationship or leave. I'll help you learn to manage those difficult emotions and confusing situations so that you can move through those life transitions and issues with a greater sense of confidence and ease.

I welcome children, adolescents, and adults .
Our quality of life is determined by the quality of our relationships. Whatever your goals may be, change is an inside job, and I'm here to be both a witness and a resource in that complex process. I'm a firm believer in establishing the basics of well-being and then slowly building on that core foundation. When we let go of shame and judgments around emotions, we allow space to cultivate more curiosity, compassion, acceptance, resiliency, and joy. When we utilize mistakes as informational gifts we can strengthen and clarify the authentic self.

I work with adults and couples.
I believe effective psychotherapy fosters one part of the path towards wholeness. Past hurts, the voice of the inner critic, emotional dysregulation, and traumatic experiences can fragment the self, and break away our inner strengths and resources. I aim to help relocate those strengths and inner resiliencies by facilitating exploration and implementing appropriate best-practice tools. Together, we can navigate the psychological barriers and free up the inner entanglement. "Wholeness is not so much perfection as completeness." -C.G. Jung.

I provide therapy for adolescents, adults , and couples who are looking to find joy where there is pain and who want to create the lives that they have dreamed of living.
Have you ever wondered why you feel depressed or anxious? Have old ways of dealing with your hardship stopped working? Do your relationships seem to always break down, leaving you feeling helpless? Many people struggle to understand themselves and the patterns that keep showing up in their lives and need a safe space with a nonjudgmental presence to explore what’s within them. Therapy can offer this space; allowing for solutions to problems to be discovered and deeper meanings of suffering to be revealed.

I work with adults who experience depression, anxiety disorders (agoraphobia, panic disorder, social anxiety, specific phobias), OCD, relationship challenges or loss, phase-of-life stressors, procrastination, & LGBTQ or Race related trauma.
Compared to many other psychologists, my therapy style may be more goal oriented, assertive, and with a stronger focus on observing and measuring therapeutic progress over longer term emotional processing. My therapeutic style is based on my belief that we do have the power to create healthy emotions & dismantle unwanted emotions. When meeting with you, I'll want to understand how your ongoing circumstances, emotions, behaviors, or thoughts impact the short term as well as the overall outcomes in your life. I base my treatment on evidenced-based inventions, eastern & wellness perspectives, and a conscious awareness approach.

I specialize in anxiety, depression, PTSD, teens, young adults , adults , and families (including foster care).
As an openly transgender therapist, I know it can be difficult to find the right person to confide in. Wanting to be loved and accepted doesn’t make you needy, or extra, or selfish, or weak. It makes you human. To me, you are not just some random psychology textbook or theory. In our work together, my focus is to build goals and a relationship where you feel comfortable exploring what you think, feel, want, and need. My style as a therapist is warm, relaxed, and conversational. I use playfulness, imagery, art, metaphors, curiosity, creativity, self-compassion, and humor when appropriate to support the therapeutic process.

I also meet with parents who are raising children/ adults with disabilities.
It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside a patient in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.
