I have been in private practice since 1986, over 30 years. My specialty is helping individuals who suffer from the whole spectrum of anxiety disorders. Any therapist "worth their salt" is one who has been tested by fire and has lived through a transformative experience so that they can truly share their wisdom with others. When I speak about anxiety to a client, I've been there. I am an expert on anxiety, fear, phobias, and panic.

Nurturing our imagination sparks joy and healing. Do you find your children struggling with the verbal and cognitive skills to express themselves? Therapy provides a space for safe exploration, connection and expressive development. My younger clients might be working to better communicate their needs or process trauma in non-verbal ways. They may be gaining the cognitive skills to work through anxiety and depression to better thrive in social settings. They might even be teens or adults searching for affirmation and nurturing of their inner child, which I support through guided talk therapy and encouraging new creative outlets.

I specialize in working with couples and individuals struggling with relationship and communication issues, who desire counseling from a Christian perspective. I also treat individuals, couples, and families who need help dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, and spiritual issues. My primary focus has been helping couples repair damaged relationships by teaching them how they can effectively apply biblical principles to their marriage in the most practical way possible. Of course, I realize that every situation is different, so I always attempt to meet clients "where they are" in terms of their own level of spirituality.

Could you use more support in dealing with life's challenges? Life can be painful for a variety of reasons. Some of the pain can not be avoided but therapy can be a place to bear witness to pain, honor it fully, and through time, emerge with the strength, and wisdom that comes from fully experiencing what is. Other times, we sense that we are suffering unnessessarily and stuck in repetitive and unhealthy patterns but can't seem to find our way out. Therapy can assist in helping to explore these patterns and finding ways to break free of them.

Oftentimes people face issues which feel so overwhelming and whose consequences seem so far-reaching that the individual may not be able to access the internal strength to solve the problem on their own. In a sense, they may become trapped in what is known and familiar. A person may come to the conclusion that they are worthless, or that there is no hope, or become mired in a feeling of uselessness. These thoughts may come from familial, social or cultural experiences and can cause people to live a life where they feel out of place or unable to achieve to their fullest potential.

With so much going on around the planet today, you may be feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and in need of someone to listen and help you sort through your feelings and thoughts. Smoky air, political polarization, social distancing, and worry about Covid can amplify our feelings of distress. Or you may feel so depressed or anxious that you can't attend to the world around you. You may feel too overwhelmed by what's going on internally to be able to truly enjoy your friends, your children, your partner, your self. I’d like to help you feel better and more connected.

One piece of feedback that I constantly get from my clients is that they appreciate my direct approach and how they're challenged by me in sessions. I believe that in order to grow, we have to want to face what makes us most uncomfortable. I think someone who is seeking a more hands-on and direct therapist would fit well in my practice. I like to work towards solutions and I want you (the client) to feel like you're progressing as a person in the course of our treatment. My ultimate goal is to get you better and out of my office back to your life....that's when I know I've done a good job.

When I think of the psychotherapy I have done with people having all kinds of issues the term that best describes what I do is "empowerment" In other words assisting you to become more able to act in your own best interest, develop options, have more self-respect and better relationships. If this fits what you want I look forward to hearing from you.

I am passionate about supporting children, teens and families navigate through the challenges of their social/emotional development. My background in mental health and early childhood education allows me to help children and teens who struggle with anxiety, self-regulation, anger, depression, special needs, challenging behavior, self-esteem issues, and trauma. I use play therapy to help children express their needs and resolve their challenges when words are difficult. Play therapy is a child's natural way of communicating.

I tend to work well with individuals that feel deeply, are highly sensitive to their environment, empathic, and who struggle to connect with themselves and their own needs, often putting others first. Someone interested in re-routing some of their mental energy toward the process of self-attunement, mindful awareness, and self-love, would be a wonderful candidate for my style of work. I insist whenever possible in laughing with my clients, and showing love and care in the way I listen actively, and share my energy with those I support.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in California are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in California then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in California, or Child Psychologists in California.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like California psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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. Psychologists in California specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. 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?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
