I welcome all clients but those who might benefit most from my expertise are those who are facing medical illnesses, such as cancer or heart disease, or who would like to change their health behaviors. My interest in health psychology began during my 30-year career as a medical journalist (Internal Medicine News, Pediatric News). I completed my training at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, the Family Medicine Residency Program at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, and the Children's Clinic of SB County. Ideally, I will work collaboratively with your physician to help with your integrated medical care.

It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

I meet my clients where they are at, and begin by building on the relationship where we can focus on the parts that seem to be holding one back from living their most authentic life. Every one has their own unique journey, and I believe that in a strong therapeutic relationship, healing, growth, and transformation is possible. Therapy allows for one to gain insight and awareness around one's patterns of behavior. Let us meet together to see if we are a good fit.

During this time I am offering clients the opportunity to meet in the outdoors (e.g. beach, hikes, backyard, ect) as well as through video or phone sessions. Each person entering therapy has a unique reason for what brought them to seek help. Together we can work to explore these personal obstacles and learn to develop the skills needed to grow and embrace our most authentic selves. I have experience working with a variety of demographics most notably specialize in working with teens and young adults, helping them navigate this crazy world in search of their own unique purpose.

Positive Psychology is a valuable tool for reaching new heights, finding one's goals, and feeling supported during challenging times. I am licensed in both California and Washington. Traveling the world has offered a perspective that I use as a tool to support clients. A trusted psychologist tries to remind others of their strengths, how to center, and maintain self-regulation. My work in the field began at the age of 17 when I started volunteering in a children's mental health department of a hospital.

My work is centered in empowering people to fully own their lives. I work from the perspective that each of us is here with a purpose, that the quality of our lives matters and is rooted in empowered choices, and that we have within us the means to find solutions to the challenges that plague us. I help people connect to themselves meaningfully, to have their own back. I help people gain clarity about what is needed to make changes in their lives, and then to go out there and ask for what they need and want effectively so they experience more success and fulfillment: in work, in relationships, in spirituality, in society.

Taking steps to create a more fulfilling life may be one of the most profound actions one can undertake. I believe that walking this path requires developing a curious and accepting relationship with oneself as well as being witnessed and supported by another - be they a therapist, partner, friend or family member. Once on this path, one can heal limiting beliefs, hurtful behaviors, and unhealthy relationships, and move toward a life of fulfillment, purpose and ease.

For many people it is hard to ask for help when it comes to sorting out the challenges of life. Making the decision to seek assistance from a therapist is courageous and can be rewarded with a safe, warm and supportive therapy environment. I work with people who often feel they are in crisis, experience anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self and struggle with the relationships in their lives but are motivated to gain insight and skills that are necessary to make lasting positive changes.

Many of my clients are those who tend to give too much, disconnect from their own needs and desires, feel depressed and anxious, and/or experience chronic pain. They are often highly sensitive and imaginative, helpers and healers, with literary, artistic, or philosophical leanings. They are all seeking to heal inner conflicts and relationship problems rooted in early attachment wounds or traumatic experiences. Most importantly, my clients have come to recognize it's time to do their inner work in order to create the outer life they want, and they continue to grow and deepen into their innate wisdom long after therapy has ended.

Therapy can be one of the bravest and most life-changing experiences you can engage in. It's a personal journey of self-awareness and healing. A key aspect of that process is finding the appropriate therapist to support you on that journey. The right fit is important. My belief is that each person has within them the wisdom to know how to heal. My job as therapist is to help people connect with that inner wisdom and utilize the person's strengths to address the challenges they are currently facing.
