"I work with clients on tools and strategies to help with symptom reduction while we uncover what you need for a deeper level of healing. In a safe, non-judgmental space I can help you identify the thoughts, narratives and distorted core beliefs that cause you suffering, keep you repeating the same patterns and block you from a higher quality of life. With gentleness and compassion we can explore the places you may get triggered and the old wounds that continue to cause fear and pain."

"Many people quietly suffer stress from past events. My neurofeedback, biofeedback, and hypnosis can help reduce or eliminate that stress. I have a doctorate in clinical psychology and teach psychology at the Masters level at Antioch University in Santa Barbara so I'm really good at explaining what I do. Although the explanation can often be important, what makes my work with you effective is our personal connection. Take a look at my website for more information. Telehypnosis available by phone. Here's a very relaxing fifteen minute meditation. Copy & paste in your browser : www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfTV97dk0vU"

"We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships."

I will see you as the unique individual you are and help you find ways to feel better and more in charge of your life and to maximize resources and support. I will respect the ways you want to go about change and help you navigate what has been the "comfortable norm" and what can be felt as the "uncomfortable new."

"I work with children, adolescents, and adults who are navigating issues such as depression, anxiety, anger, substance abuse, transitions, and day-to-day life stress. From a psychodynamic lens, I create a supportive environment for my clients based on trust and connection. Growth becomes possible when we have the opportunity to reflect and gain insight in a non-judgmental setting. From this space we can begin to integrate aspects of ourselves that have been neglected due to challenging or painful experiences."

"Whenever people come to see me, I am always impressed by their courage. No matter what the problems are, most everyone enters therapy from a confused and vulnerable space. To do so takes courage. In knowing this, I work to honor their vulnerability and courage. I know that by providing a grounded, attentive, and focused presence to those I work with, trust will occur between us, and we can all be more free to address whatever the pain may be. Without this foundation of trust, I will not be able to effectively help at all."

"My approach to therapy is relational. I believe the problems that lead people to therapy are most often interpersonal in nature and I see the therapeutic relationship as the primary agent of change. I endeavor to create with my clients a relationship that does not repeat the problematic relational patterns that led them to therapy. I use the therapeutic relationship to show clients that different and more satisfying interpersonal outcomes are possible. I also draw upon an existential approach to help clients accept responsibility for their role in creating themselves, their relationships and their experiential world."
