Stress, anxiety and depression are common human responses to difficult life events. Current research supports that therapy can help individuals better understand and move through these experiences. In my view there is great potential for healing at any stage in life. I acknowledge that a desire for depth and wholeness is universal - as is the need for meaning. I work mostly with adults, seniors, and family members experiencing adjustment to life changes; including work issues, adult children's struggles, retirement, and loss and grief.

My 35 year professional career has spanned a range of human problems from couple's conflict to trauma recovery. I have come to understand that whether a person is grappling with depression or chronic illness there is an opportunity for greater understanding of themselves, and by extension, of what it means to be a whole & complete human being in the world.

Life can be difficult. You don't have to go it alone. My approach is engaged and practical, with the goal of meeting you where you are. My work is grounded in the belief that the relationship between therapist and client is the foundation for therapeutic change. With couples, I incorporate the work of Sue Johnson/EFT, Dan Wile and The Gottman Institute. Prior to working as a therapist I enjoyed an extensive career in the business world. In Sonoma County since 1993, I hold an MA in Counseling Psychology and a BS in Business Administration. Grounded. Collaborative. Creative. Respectful.

I believe my role is to be strong and active as a therapist in order to create a safe place. With compassion, awareness and even some humor, growth and healing are possible.

I help kids, teens, and families experiencing divorce create a fulfilling “new normal” by moving from stuck and overwhelmed to thriving and free. I know that you are more than a person going through a divorce. It is overwhelming to ensure your kids are supported, especially while you are learning what it means to be a single parent, navigating the impossible waters of being a healthy co-parent, adjusting to the new financial realities, and not to mention dealing with your own heartbreak.

Is there a big weight on your shoulders or a tightness in the chest? Do you consistently have difficulty quieting your inner critic? Do find that your anxiety stops you from doing what you want to do? All of our life experiences shape who we are. We carry memories, past challenges, and formative experiences everywhere we go — it’s what makes us human. But when these pieces of us become intrusive thoughts, fixations, or impulsive behaviors, it is important to take a step back and make the time and space to work toward a more sustainable relationship with these pieces of ourselves.

Here we are together, possibly under order to shelter-in-place. Schools are closed, kids are at home, there is panic buying and non-essential business are shut down. Many people are working from home or remotely. I myself have transitioned 100% secure video conferencing. There are concerns about our under-resourced health care system fears of economic instability and insecurity. Right now, we are living in uncertainty with little information on when "normal" will return, if ever. This type of uncertainty causes all kinds of anxiety and psychological disruption in our lives.

I work with people from all walks of life, experiencing a wide variety of mental, emotional and relationship difficulties. I work with children, parents of children, adolescents, adults and older adults. Adult psychotherapy clients who work best with me are usually looking for lasting solutions to emotional problems rather than advice, "tools" or quick fixes and they can tolerate a listening approach designed to deepen discussion. They understand that the unacknowledged thoughts and feelings that create havoc can emerge in therapy, and they are looking for a professional to help them understand and work through difficult moments.

Therapy is a place to discuss any issue, big or small. Together, we will identify the root cause(s) of what is negatively impacting your life and preventing you from reaching your goals. In our sessions, I will help you be more in line with your “best self” by challenging any self-defeating thoughts or behaviors while developing healthier coping skills and ways of thinking. If you’re looking to address anxiety or depression, improve communication in your relationship (as an individual or couple), or navigate life transitions (like loss or coping with a disability), I can help get you through it.

My work as a therapist is grounded in trauma-informed, feminist, and attachment based principles that highlight the importance of safe and trusting relationships. I am here to provide attuned feedback and guidance as you navigate sex and love, anxiety, grief and loss, the ongoing effects of childhood trauma, unlearning codependency and strengthening or softening boundaries. My goal is to help you develop tools for self-awareness, resiliency and intimacy building, and conflict resolution. I believe deeply in the power of healing work, and the great courage it takes to turn inward, to turn toward pain, and to face and love ourselves.

What type of Santa Rosa mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Santa Rosa?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
