Don't wait another day to become your best self. The first step in seeking out a therapist can be scary. I know because I have been there before. You've already taken that first step which takes a lot of courage. Life presents challenges and sometimes these challenges can feel impossible to overcome on your own.

♡ YOU BELONG HERE ♡ ...................................................................................…...…... It takes courage to ask for help, especially when you’re hurting. Maybe it feels like no one understands. Maybe it feels like no one cares. Maybe it feels like life is too much. Maybe you just need someone to listen, or guide, with love. Here we are.

In therapy it’s sometimes said you must feel it- to heal it, and for couples this can be especially true. I can help you process difficult emotions together and come to a mutual understanding, grow closer as a couple, and improve communication. I can also work with you independently. For the individuals I work with, I promote improving emotional strength, independence, developing confidence, refining assertiveness, accepting responsibility and finding your direction. I can help you to take an objective look at the relationship dynamics you may be trying to navigate and see if solutions can be found that work for you.

I assist individuals, couples, children, and families to find meaningful connection and worth in their relationships. I firmly believe each person is worthy of dignity, love, and respect; and help my clients to discover these things within themselves. As a mother of six adopted children, I have vast experience in the joys and struggles of parenting. I strive to help others build healthy attachments within couples, families, and parent-child relationships.

Finding the right therapist is important. The fact that you're on this site shows that you may be searching for help or relief from everyday problems. In therapy, you can learn new and important things about yourself and others, identify and change negative behaviors or thoughts, and explore relationships. If you're a parent, maybe you're struggling with how to help your child who is experiencing difficulties with attention or organization at school, feelings of anxiety, worry or anger or doesn't know how to share painful memories.

Do you feel life is restricting you from who you really want to be for yourself, your partner and/or your family? My primary goal in therapy is to help enhance your ability to make choices. I use personalized approaches to help empower your bravery to look inside yourself. The authenticity of these choices will lead to serving you and your relationships in the best ways possible. Assessing our sometimes, self-imposed, "roadblocks" in life can help us build accountability for our choices. This, in turn, allows these choices to become "building blocks" toward lasting joy for each relationship creation of your choice.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in California, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in California listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
