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.

Ready to make some positive changes? People come to therapy for many different reasons. Some want relief from stressors, to improve their personal relationships, or develop their professional goals. Others want to break life-long defeating patterns or have experienced trauma that affects their relationships with self and others. After addressing pressing issues that require immediate attention, I provide a supportive environment to develop a deeper understanding of underlying dynamics that inform the choices you make.

It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

During this time I am offering clients the opportunity to meet in the outdoors (e.g. beach, hikes, backyard, ect) as well as through video or phone sessions. Each person entering therapy has a unique reason for what brought them to seek help. Together we can work to explore these personal obstacles and learn to develop the skills needed to grow and embrace our most authentic selves. I have experience working with a variety of demographics most notably specialize in working with teens and young adults, helping them navigate this crazy world in search of their own unique purpose.

All human beings are capable of meaningful and lasting transformation. All of us, regardless of whether we are 6 or 60, can use our minds to change our brains to change our minds to... well, you get the picture. This is thanks to a phenomenon called "neuroplasticity." Neuroplasticity says that neurons that fire together wire together. Through the intentional development of new skills for choosing healthier thoughts and responses to life's challenges, we can actually change the structure of our brains. This gradual transformation of our neurology allows us to restructure our lives to eliminate needless suffering.

Most of us have come to a place in our lives where we could use some extra support, look at things in a different way and make different choices. Therapy can be helpful in assisting families and individuals in managing relationships and mental health issues. Therapy is a safe and confidential place to freely express your concerns and be heard. It is a cooperative effort between the therapist and client.

The wounds and scars of our childhood often cause us to repeat dysfunctional patterns in our attempt to heal. We don't repeat painful relationships out of masochism or familiarity; we repeat because we want a different outcome, one we believe will shift how we feel about ourselves and our past. As a psychoanalyst, I explore (not dwell on) early care-giving relationships, traumas, and other life events that shaped who you have become. As your emotional story is realized we use our therapy relationship, your current life, and ongoing awareness of your inner world to work through the stuck places and create a different future.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
