I am currently not taking new clients. Are you feeling emotions that are difficult to handle; issues surfacing that you're ready to take a look at? Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed? Possibly your relationships are strained or unsatisfying. Maybe you're struggling with parenting a teenager, or you are a teenager wanting someone to listen? These are all areas of interest to me. I have worked with individuals, couples for over 22 years and am still amazed that while therapy is often not easy, it is truly worth the effort for most people. I have a calm, supportive, interactive style and welcome working with you.

Are you the spouse of a law enforcement officer who is constantly caught between needing connection with your partner while also respecting the burdens he carries from his work? Even when your spouse comes home, he’s not fully present with you and your family, remaining distant and hard to connect with. You manage your home, show up to events solo, and endure the ups and downs of shift rotations because you love your partner, but deep down feel resentful that he isn’t available to you the way you need him to be. All of this is just made harder by the unknowns of the job and the anxiety of knowing if he’ll come home at all.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I work with couples, individual adults, and adolescents and their families. I realize that it is a big decision to enter therapy. When I was much younger, I remember being afraid of the idea of therapy. Then one day I experienced a crisis and found myself in front of a therapist. I mark that day as a major turning point in my life. Instead of having to deal with frequent uncomfortable feelings (e.g. anxiety, depression, feelings of unworthiness and shame), the clouds lifted and I just felt--well healthier.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Pleasant Hill using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Pleasant Hill are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Pleasant Hill
