About

I offer a safe and supportive space for you to look at your life honestly, to figure out and to work toward realizing your dreams, and to explore and face what may be getting in the way of you living the life you want. No matter where you come from or what you have been through you can have a good life. It is never too late. With support you can reckon with your past trauma and grief, face your fears, and go on to thrive in life.
I have worked as a licensed therapist for 25+ years helping teens, college students, and adults of all ages through major transitions. I help them to build more tolerance to reckon with the anxiety that comes as they push the edge of change, to become more intimate with themselves and others, and to put themselves out in the world.
I also have extensive experience helping others recover from addictions, post-traumatic stress, depression, and anxiety in private practice, at Women's Crisis Support, and at Kaiser Permanente's Addictions Medicine and Women's Health. In addition, I have worked at UCSC for 20+ years helping college students navigate their lives, education, and future.
