Receiving news of your pregnancy can be exciting, yet overwhelming and scary. Everyone says how pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but no one ever talks nor prepares you for the scary side of pregnancy. You never imagined it would be this physically, emotionally demanding or draining. Soon, you find yourself experiencing intrusive negative thoughts about yourself, your baby, and the world around you. You wonder if you are even fit to be a parent. Additional outside stressors and the arrival of the baby contribute to feeling more overwhelmed and life becomes difficult to manage

Have you ever thought, “What just happened?!” or “Why does this keep happening to me?!” Maybe you feel confused, worn out, or even hopeless. Chances are, you are someone who likes to help those you care about. But perhaps you may find it hard to ask for the kind of help you so freely give. You may try again or harder, or try something different, but no matter what you do or say things don’t seem to change. You feel that familiar feeling of stuck.

Have you been feeling overwhelmed, anxious or fearful lately? Are you feeling isolated, disconnected or burnt out? These can feel like chaotic times and many people are needing increased emotional support. If you or your partner are expecting a baby or are a new parent, life can feel especially unmanageable. You may be worried about staying safe and healthy, attending doctor appointments alone or not receiving as much social support after baby has arrived. Therapy can be a safe, non-judgemental space to reflect and process these complex emotions.

The mask we wear covers how lonely we really feel. Are you going through the motions, when all you feel is lost, depressed, scared, and drained? Are you having trouble speaking up for yourself in relationships or struggling with boundaries at home or at work? Do you hold it all in, constantly frustrated? Is it hard to make life transitions right now? Are you crying in the car on the way to work while still telling everyone you are fine? Being the “strong one” is so tiring. It silences us. Let’s find your voice. You deserve a place to cry, vent, find your footing, and emerge your best self. I would be honored to help you do that.

I have been working with people for 30 years and look forward to helping clients create healthy relationships with me, themselves and with those in their lives. I enjoy working with individuals from all racial and cultural backgrounds who are motivated to make changes in their lives; to reduce painful reactions; and increase their understanding of what makes them feel happy, strong and self assured. I encourage clients to do homework assignments in between therapy sessions, in an effort to help clients take ownership of their process, and learn coping skills that will last beyond treatment.

Have you lost the intimacy in your relationship? Are you miscommunicating with your partner, or have you stopped communicating at all? Or, maybe you feel like your relationship is stagnant, and not moving in the direction that you'd like it to. If so, I am a psychologist who has successfully worked with many couples going through these stages. I use mindfulness, which helps couples to stop judging and to start communicating again. Change and progress is usually possible from the first session, but it all depends on each partner's willingness to take a step back and re-assess.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 30 years of experience working with couples and individuals navigating through some of the most difficult and stressful life changing situations and events. As a registered nurse I specialized in labor and delivery, became a certified lactation consultant and worked as an infertility nurse for many years prior to beginning my career as a psychotherapist. Through my own growth I have come to realize that every person or couple is different in terms of goals, aspirations, and the pursuit of happiness and that everyone’s path to peace of mind is different.

Initiating therapy is a courageous and vulnerable step. For many who have experienced trauma, addiction, and relational issues in their past, this is can be an intense experience. I will work closely with you to understand your individual circumstances and needs. Together, we will build a plan that honors your journey of healing. As a therapist, I will work to provide a safe space and act as a guide as you build insight and explore new ways of living. My goal is to promote healing from within, shift pervasive beliefs that no longer serve you, and help you explore and uncover attunement to your purpose and sense of self.

What type of California 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 California?
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.
