"Well, it's always something!" How often have we all heard and said this phrase. Yet it's true. Life is always presenting us with"somethings" - loss, problems, distress, despair - obstacles to our happiness and well-being, and to our relationships. It is a very wise decision to reach out for help. Yet I know it is also stressful to try to decide on a therapist. Let me share with you who I am and my approach as a therapist. I unfailingly believe it is possible for people to make positive changes in their lives and to heal past and present trauma and pain.

Helping you find your path, your reasons, and desires are the focus of my treatment approach. I believe treatment is a path and together we can walk along your discoveries to recover from addiction, that is my commitment to you. I have extensive experience in addiction counseling/co-occurring disorders. I believe in the disease model of addiction and the family model, and recognize that by strengthening the family structure, families live healthier lives. I also recognize that addictions can be a learned behavior which can be controlled. For that, I view the 12 step model as support for treatment.

I believe people are generally quite resilient and have a natural capacity to heal from trauma and stress. But often these stressors will take a toll on well being, accumulating over time. Symptoms may show up as depression, anxiety, relationship tension, health conditions and/or a self-harming behavior. I welcome your call to discuss your personal needs and whether my approach might be a good fit. I'll do my best to help you get connected to the most optimal resources for your unique circumstances.

Life is dynamic and full of challenges, and sometimes we are presented with difficulties that we do not feel equipped to handle. Major life concerns, relationship issues, or old patterns can leave us feeling stuck, overwhelmed or uncertain about how to move forward. I have come to the belief that much of our unhappiness comes from "not knowing." When we lack information about how to have healthy relationships, how to cope with adversity, or how to survive and thrive in the world, it can lead us down paths we never intended to journey.

After earning my BS at Berkeley, I spent a number of years traveling the world and then went on to earn two MS degrees, the second in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been working as a therapist for ~5 years, but have worked as a counselor with children, adolescents, and families for >5 years. I built my own academic counseling business, in which I fostered relationships with families and the community. This experience working with hundreds of local families gave me great insight into the power of supportive, goal oriented, client centered, positive relationships as catalysts for change in individuals and relational systems.
