Therapy can help you find balance, connection, and fulfillment. In order to do so, I believe it's important that we acknowledge the shadow elements of life-the challenges that cause us pain, confusion, and block us from finding a sense of harmony and well-being. I collaborate with you in navigating the shadows and the more buried aspects of your life in order to develop a deeper capacity for balance, personal growth, and healing. To find out more about who I am, how I work, and if I might be the right therapist for you, consider visiting sanluisobispotherapy.org

I have been working with people to achieve happier and more contented lives and relationships for more than 20 years. I have a particular interest in working with people who are interested in changing habit patterns that are familiar but not working.We all have habitual patterns of doing, being, and relating that may not be what we want in our lives today yet they persist as they have been reinforced over time. Some habits we have learned stem from childhood, others we may have developed as adults.

Does the transition into adulthood feel confusing, scary, or overwhelming? Do you feel like there's something wrong with you, or like you should have more figured out by now? Maybe you find yourself longing for support and guidance to help you get clear about who YOU really are and what YOU really want? Perhaps the friends and family in your life, whether they’re well-meaning or too busy struggling with their own challenges, aren’t showing up in a way that actually feels helpful or inspiring to you as you try to navigate these big questions? Do you feel pressured to figure out everything on your own but it all feels like too much?

My specialty is supporting humans on their path of awakening. This includes integrating expanded states of consciousness (psychedelic experiences, spiritual awakenings) and deprogramming from societal conditioning that doesn't work for them. Often included in this is integrating aspects of self which tend to be marginalized, such as sexuality or alternative lifestyles. My clients are often free-thinkers, seekers, passionate and sensitive souls, trying to find balance. Individuals & Couples.

Are old relationship patterns, experiences of trauma and neglect, or stuck ways of thinking interfering with your ability to step more fully into your life? Therapy can and should go beyond achieving a reduction in distress. In my work I aspire to facilitate development of a deeper connection with inner strength, vision, passion and conviction while addressing your issues of concern.

“Why?”, you ask, “does my life seem so hard?” Anxiety and depression, constant companions, you wonder why you aren’t feeling better after all the hard work you have done on yourself. The voices in your head - “You’re not good enough” or “No one cares” are getting louder - again. You are certain others will see through you and your “imposter syndrome”, get annoyed, and eventually leave. Most of the time you're taking care of others' needs. Often a welcome distraction, you're tired of feeling invisible to those closest to you.

I love to work with people who are tired of feeling stuck or weighed down by old patterns and are ready to transform their lives and thrive. Together, we explore the obstacles and find creative ways around or through them. My experience as an artist, meditator, and former body and energy healing practitioner allows me to approach therapy in a creative and transformative way. As a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist (REAT), I am incorporating creative expression in my work, allowing the client to access their inner truth not only verbally, but through the various non-verbal channels of expression- visual, movement, voice, or music.

We are taught to constantly go, but sometimes we need to stop, look inside, and find what's keeping us from moving forward. I offer a safe container to do this. You have the knowledge within to choose the right path. It's my job to walk with you, lighting the way. Containment and clarity: this is what I can offer to you as my client. I offer therapy in English/Spanish to individuals, couples, and families.

People seek therapy for all kinds of reasons, but common to all of them is the fact that their life is not working as well as they want. This can be for a multitude of reasons; anxieties, depression, relationship issues, lack of fulfillment, purpose or meaning. Psychological symptoms are signals that alert us to examine the obstacles that hinder us from moving through life more freely with a sense of aliveness and agency.

We all go through difficult times and it takes courage to reach out for support. You may be wondering how therapy can help you. Perhaps you want support with a challenging issue, to relieve anxiety, recover from trauma or to change patterns that no longer work for you. You may want to improve a relationship or get support with parenting or working through loss. You can make changes, break patterns, and heal. Therapy is a place to get support, to explore new strategies for coping better with life, and to view things from an expanded perspective. Our challenges present us with opportunities to heal as well as grow.

You are uncomfortable - Something is bothering you. You need resolution about an issue, event, experience or relationship. I work in a collaborative/relational model with people who have had experiences that they have not fully integrated yet. I use talk therapy, imagery, metaphor, hypnosis, EMDR, Positive Psychology, and Sensorimotor. Often clients report being disinterested in a formerly distressing topic after treatment. I'm comfortable working many types of issues including trauma, PTSD, ACA, sexual abuse, panic attacks or phobias, anxiety or depression, losses or relationship breakups, people with mysterious physical ailments.
