About

Most of my clients have reached a point at which their lives have become uncomfortable & maybe even untenable. They may be nervous about embarking on the therapeutic journey with a stranger. Often, this is their first experience with therapy. Or, perhaps, they have been in therapy on & off throughout their lives. Because this is new & anxiety-provoking, we move slowly at first. My clients do not want to be pushed into talking about trauma or uncomfortable life events until they are ready. I respect & honor that. Most people want to move at their own pace & will tell me what that means. As trust grows, we are able to begin healing.
I am a Navy vet w/a BA (psych-SDSU) & MS/PhD (adult clinical psych-Auburn Univ). I retired from the VA in 2019. I'm mainly a psychodynamic therapist w/additional training. For your convenience, all sessions are provided via telehealth. *If you're interested in moving more quickly than traditional therapy allows, no prepay concierge services also available.
Within an established therapeutic relationship, we can explore current and (if necessary) past events that have led you to this place of discomfort. I believe that problems do not just begin on their own. They are often slow-growing and based on many experiences. In the safety of the relationship, we can find the source(s) and work to create healing.
