I understand the anxiety around therapy. Will the therapist have an open mind?, is he/she supportive?, is this therapist right for me? I offer a 30-minute phone consultation to alleviate these concerns before we get started. We get to know one another and see if we are a good match. And, it won't cost you a dime! I can be either active, asking questions, exploring behaviors inhibiting your growth or listening, assimilating information, getting a better picture of where we need to go in our work. Either way, our relationship is "collaborative", with your best interests at heart.

Cultivating emotional health, growing vibrantly in daily life requires a harmony of being emotionally, mentally and spiritually grounded as a human being. As lovely as it sounds, this is challenging, if not altogether a daunting process for most of us. Especially with increasing depression, anxiety, life stressors and many other barriers we struggle with. How do we begin? What can be said and how do we embark on creating a healthier relationship with our true authentic self. How do we learn to connect to others and the world to nurture wellbeing? These are the questions to search out and discover. So breathe...and let's begin!

Experiencing depression, anxiety, or relationship issues can be discouraging. One important aspect to therapy is helping clients build the inner strength to develop healthy skills and better manage their symptoms. This is partly achieved through a collaborative approach to therapy that invites the client to understand and choose what is ultimately best for their health and relationships.

My therapeutic approach stems from the belief that at some point in our lives, we all could benefit from speaking to a professional to help us navigate through whatever issues are holding us back. For some, the desire to seek support happens early in life and for others it happens later. Whether issues stem from life changes, mental health disorders, or external stressors, I believe now is always the right time to start working towards a greater understanding of yourself and your needs. Through working in collaboration with my clients, I hope to help them heal and become the best version of themselves that they've ever known.

Does the distance between you feel unbearable at times? Perhaps you can't find the will or the courage to draw near your partner. Resentment and distrust may have widened the gap. Though reactive fights stand in the way of the tenderness you need, your heartfelt friendship could be just below the surface. Hoping it will get better, we wait to get help, while patterns reinforce distance and a negative view of each other. We become less willing to reveal ourselves or seek comfort and friendship from our most important person. You both really deserve your measure of happiness.

I approach each client as a unique individual. Diagnoses suggest empirically validated treatments, but each individual is unique. There is always room for personal growth and creating balance in our lives. I am kind, gentle and honest. I have been practicing in Thousand Oaks, CA for over 15 years. I run a free weekly support group for pregnancy and infant loss sponsored by Hospice of the Conejo. Other support groups I have run are Bereavement Groups for Children and the support group for those who lost their loved ones on the Metrolink train crash.

Grief takes many forms: Relationship, career, role transitions, aging, and health loss, to name a few. Whether someone dies by suicide, illness, accident, or natural circumstances, our world turns upside-down and we feel hopeless, our grief endless. Sometimes there's despair, anxiety, sometimes relief. Sometimes we think of what we could've, would've or should've done. Sometimes we're just numb. Sometimes we (or others) judge that passing time should measure our healing. Grief is individual and personal; there is no right or wrong way to feel. One thing IS certain: We need support, hope and understanding.
