I have worked with adult individuals and couples since 2005 both in short-term and long-term psychotherapy. My main orientation is psychodynamic and looking at personality development, but I also use cognitive-behavioral and neuroscience research. I am a preferred provider for many years with UCSB and sixty percent of my practice has been working with graduate students. We worked on anxiety, depression, self-esteem, sense of self, individuation, trauma, PTSD, OCD, personality disorders and phobias. While individuals makes up the main part of my practice working with couples is also a passion of mine.

I've been licensed/ in practice for 32 years; enjoying the privilege with individuals, couples and families.
Every person has intrinsic value and worth- which is vitally important to remember when exploring one's personal journey. At times we forget and need gentle reminding. Having a skilled clinician to help shine a light on things that need attention or adjustment, sets us up for more of what we really want and need in life. Each person also holds a personal narrative, which contributes in shaping relationships and life choices, as well as contributes to problematic patterns and habits. Seeking support for a more fulfilling life and the restoration of what matters most, is nothing less than heroic. Call for a complimentary intake.

I have had over 50 years of experience in learning how to integrate these processes in order to help individuals and couples .
EFFECTIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY .... ---involves more than someone giving you sage advice or counseling --- involves more than sitting and talking with a kind, patient and empathic professional --- involves more than simply identifying and changing negative thoughts and doubts --- involves more than feeling your hurt feelings and catharsis --- involves more than learning mindfulness or meditation --- does not occur in a few sessions. Effective psychotherapy integrates all these processes tailored to your life and provides you with TOOLS with which to make better decisions about your life, and manage and heal your emotional issues and traumas. .

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.

Are you feeling in a rut with your partner ? Having a hard time communicating or getting stuck in that same old fight? You're not alone. I am most passionate about working with couples who want to feel connected again. Life transitions, infidelities, and individual differences can lead partners to feel frustrated and misunderstood. Using techniques from Emotionally Focussed Therapy (EFT) and The Gottman Approach, I can work with you to regulate emotions, rebuild trust and strengthen communication, so you may repair hurts in your relationship and grow stronger than ever before.

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 offer individual and couples therapy.
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.

Life can lead us down some pretty confusing paths sometimes, leaving us feeling crazy, unsettled, and totally lost. You don't have to feel like this forever. I work with individuals, couples , and teens who are really going through it - anxiety, panic and stress, relationship issues, PTSD, and unresolved issues that continue to impact current life. Many of my clients are insightful, curious, growth-oriented people who are seeking something beyond traditional therapy. My focus is on helping you to UN-learn all the crap you've taken on over the years that is weighing you down and freeing up whatever it is that seems to be stuck.

How often do you feel trapped in your life, stuck in patterns or habits that aren't doing you any good, or that you are not reaching your potential? We all have things that keep us from living the life that we want to lead - sometimes we need help getting through or around those obstacles, and sometimes we need help tearing them down entirely. I have been working in the mental health field since 2003, and in that time I have worked with a broad range of individuals, couples , families, and children to help improve their lives.
