Would you like to feel more fully alive? I come from a mindfulness-based healing perspective integrating body, mind and spirit. Together we explore the "roadblocks" that all of us unknowingly put up which use up our energy, cloud our vision of our life's purpose and prevent us from having authentic, meaningful and fulfilling lives.

The word psychotherapy means “healing of the soul.” If you’re like most, your soul has been wounded. Sometimes it’s nobody’s fault. Sometimes it is. You may have been wounded recently; or, more likely, when you were younger. And so, as a result, you’ve adopted beliefs, created stories, and implemented strategies to protect your soul from further wounding. But if you’re reading this, those beliefs, stories, and strategies are not working anymore. Have you had enough? Is it time to finally get on a healing path? There are a number of ways to heal your wounds. When we speak I’ll share some of them. I look forward to chatting.

This approach, much like the psychodynamic philosophy, pays close attention to how the unconscious mind influences how we experience life.
I work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents. I quickly get to know my clients so that we can co-create a plan that is right for them. Some people come with specific issues they would like to address. Others, are not sure why they are unhappy, feel nervous, are dissatisfied, and are not enjoying life. Together we investigate where this may come from, look for the root cause(s) and then create a plan for change. My business and entrepreneurial background helps me to understand the pressures that many people face daily, the challenges of balancing work & life, and the struggle to maintain relationships and a career.

I practice psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
We all want to become, be, and remain adults able to enjoy times of great happiness and grow from times of stress, difficulty, and sadness. This is not an easy process and requires learning from feeling, thinking about, and experiencing the ups and downs of our lives, understanding what our experiences mean, where they come from, and what we can do to make changes in our lives. In this process we know that we can experience anxiety, depression, stress, tension, and many other things that require professional help in order to maintain our footing and keep moving forward in our lives.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Yucca Valley, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
