I am a psychologist experienced in helping children, teens and adults. My experiences in the mental health field began in 1981 and include working with the seriously mentally ill, treating traumatized children, and working with the oppressed. These experiences have taught me the importance of maintaining compassion for others even when they are in extreme states or are easily wounded. Working with different cultures has taught me to respect the world view and values of others. My background helps me to understand struggles of all types with a greater depth and sensitivity. All problems, worries and concerns are significant and deserving of a serious approach.

Do anxiety, worry, guilt, and depression have a way of stealing your motivation and zest for life? These symptoms often make us feel stuck or confined, like we are in a prison. Even the most mundane moments of our lives can be blurred by worry, fear, hopelessness, and intrusive thoughts. Many of us struggle with this, and there is hope.

I am committed to being real and appreciating the honesty and bravery you bring to work on things that are difficult in your life. A lot of people come into therapy feeling as though they "should" have been able to do this on their own, however, we are not born to know how to cope effectively with many of life's stressors and sometimes are even coming from environments that did not teach us great ways to do so. I work with people who struggle regulating their daily emotions and perhaps feel their emotions more intensely than others.
