I welcome all clients but those who might benefit most from my expertise are those who are facing medical illnesses, such as cancer or heart disease, or who would like to change their health behaviors. My interest in health psychology began during my 30-year career as a medical journalist (Internal Medicine News, Pediatric News). I completed my training at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, the Family Medicine Residency Program at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, and the Children's Clinic of SB County. Ideally, I will work collaboratively with your physician to help with your integrated medical care.

Positive Psychology is a valuable tool for reaching new heights, finding one's goals, and feeling supported during challenging times. I am licensed in both California and Washington. Traveling the world has offered a perspective that I use as a tool to support clients. A trusted psychologist tries to remind others of their strengths, how to center, and maintain self-regulation. My work in the field began at the age of 17 when I started volunteering in a children's mental health department of a hospital.

Does your relationship feel terribly one-sided, with you constantly making sacrifices for someone without getting much in return? Often, when you wrap your life around someone else, accepting unacceptable circumstances to keep the relationship together, it can be emotionally exhausting and profoundly destructive. So, how do you change things when life is so challenging and you're alone in your efforts to fix it; when you feel completely responsible for the well-being of others at the cost of your peace of mind? Therapy is the best next step when your own efforts haven't worked out.

"If the only tool you have in life is a hammer, everything looks like a nail!" Therapy is not for "weak" and "sick" people, but can be an excellent way to fill your "tool box," with skills to improve relationships, communicate more effectively, manage stress, emotions, and challenging life transitions. Therapy provides a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space in which you can develop skills, insights, and inspirations, leaving you feeling more empowered in many areas of your life. My training comes from 15+ years of experience in hospitals, treatment programs, correctional facilities, and private practice.

I have been privileged to help adults and couples with life transitions and stress-related problems; depression and anxiety; grief and bereavement; traumatic events of childhood and adulthood; sexual identity issues; and other life problems. I work to bring you in close touch with the parts of yourself that you have been avoiding, neglecting or rejecting, in order to develop a different relationship with yourself, a relationship of understanding, kindness and forgiveness. When we are no longer frightened by those parts of ourselves that were unacceptable, we slow down, lose our reactivity, and remain present, even in difficult circumstances.

Many of my clients are those who tend to give too much, disconnect from their own needs and desires, feel depressed and anxious, and/or experience chronic pain. They are often highly sensitive and imaginative, helpers and healers, with literary, artistic, or philosophical leanings. They are all seeking to heal inner conflicts and relationship problems rooted in early attachment wounds or traumatic experiences. Most importantly, my clients have come to recognize it's time to do their inner work in order to create the outer life they want, and they continue to grow and deepen into their innate wisdom long after therapy has ended.
