Trauma can cause a person to get stuck in the past. With therapy, healing can begin to allow you to live fully in the present, with less triggers and fear. I work with adolescents and adults who have experienced trauma, or who are suffering from depression and anxiety.

I've been doing therapy with kids and families since 1988. Individuals and couples now form a significant part of my practice. I can help you resolve conflict, build more loving relationships and address issues like depression , anxiety, parenting, addiction, sexuality and communication. Having difficult conversations requires skill and empathy which I can help you build. I'll work with you to develop practical solutions to real problems. 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.

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.

Psychotherapy can offer a process to better understand the relationship between our thoughts, feelings (emotions and physiology), and behaviors. I work with people from all walks of life and specialize in treating anxiety, depression , grief/loss, trauma, career/identity issues, and adjustment difficulties related to life transitions and illness. Some of my therapeutic goals include helping clients manage symptoms of distress with healthier coping, improving relationships (with self and others), and exploring the ways in which current problems may be linked to unresolved issues from the past.

I believe it is the "personhood" of the therapist that is most important for a genuine therapeutic relationship. I am compassionate, very intelligent and plain speaking. I have treated adults and couples for 28 years. I have lots of life experience too, which will hopefully help in understanding your issues. I am a wife and mother, have lived in 4 countries and trained therapists for 10 years. I help young and not-so-young people with their relationships with others and themselves, and with those transitions that are part of human existence.

I am passionate about working with people who are experiencing depression , anxiety, or grief.
Is it easier for you to give than to receive? Are you a nurse, therapist, teacher, or in another "helping profession"? Are you tired of struggling with the daily life grind, while longing for a rich and vibrant life? Do you wonder why you often feel so depleted, while others are enjoying life? Are you in a relationship but are struggling with the same issues and can't find your way to a better way of relating? You are not alone! You deserve to be happy and fulfilled. You can heal and learn new ways of living! I hold the space in which a full and rewarding life is possible for you, even if you cannot yet imagine it for yourself.

My specialty is working with the symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety with the goal of reducing these symptoms and improving the quality of your life.
I think that life is really about the relationships in our lives. Our earliest relationships were with our parent and/or caregivers. Siblings, friends, teachers and co-workers are added as layers upon layers. Seeking intimacy is a rite of passage. How we navigate the transitions in life with those relationships affects our whole being. I believe that therapy is about better understanding who we are first and then we can relate to others in a more healthy, well rounded way.

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.

Many people come to therapy experiencing anxiety, depression , relationship difficulties, or some other phase of life issue. People who find working with me helpful tend to want to go beyond treating symptoms to understanding what is keeping them stuck and working towards being freed from internal conflicts that are blocking them from enjoying their lives. They are seeking self-discovery, healing, understanding, and growth.

I also work with you to help resolve relationship difficulties, work dissatisfactions, grief, depression and anxiety, resulting from trauma or life transitions -- recognizing patterns and discovering new possibilities.
It is possible, I believe, for life to be deeply satisfying, fulfilling and vital ~ whatever the beginning, and however difficult or confusing the present time might seem. For over 30 years in my practice, I have witnessed this again and again -- and have developed a deep respect for the stamina and resilience of the human spirit. I work to provide you with the kind of supportive context that can help you find your innate gifts, and make real the changes you envision. I focus on the ways awareness of difficulty or pain can be a key to hidden strength and renewal.

Life can bring depression , anxiety, discouragement, self doubt - many kinds of suffering.
I enjoy working with couples. The areas of upset often are a map, pointing us to possibilities of potential growth. Your difficulties can become a catalyst for increased intimacy. It's easy for any couple to get off track in efforts to communicate - slipping into blaming or power struggles, rather than your true communications, which can bring you closer and into deeper intimacy and trust. My job is to work together with you to help you develop skills that help reclaim happiness - communication skills, skills in understanding yourself and your partner, skills for building and rebuilding the life you want .

Congratulations on taking this step, especially at this difficult, pandemic time. We can speak via phone, zoom, or FaceTime. In nearly 40 years of treatment, I have assisted many clients on the spectrum which ranges from: curiosity about past lives, managing minor life changes or ADHD assessments, to more complex issues of depression , anxiety, grief, and trauma. Unexpected life events, difficult phase-of-life issues, loss, and trauma are often painful and intense. I can help you to explore and to understand the thoughts and feelings which underlie your current concerns, whether they are new or have existed since childhood.

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.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Santa Rosa. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
