I specialize in addressing the deeper, often unconscious roots of difficulties utilizing depth psychotherapy, with influences of gestalt (process) and person centered interventions.
Few of us make it through childhood without having experienced trauma of one form or another. Often times, the adaptations that we make in order to best survive early life challenges, lead to patterns of belief and action which get in the way of us finding freedom, happiness, and fulfillment as adolescents and adults. Every person deserves an opportunity to grow to their greatest potential. Therapy is a facilitated process of increasing awareness of obstacles to growth and supporting transformation.

My approach is primarily from a gestalt therapy approach which focuses on how we interrupt our own healthy functioning and learn to move through and beyond our self imposed limitations.
Thanks for visiting my profile here. I'm an experienced psychologist with a small part time practice in both San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, CA. I conduct psychotherapy with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I work primarily with older adolescents and adults. I approach therapy from a gestalt perspective which means a level of depth and connection in therapy. Also, I am not on any insurance panels at this time. I also train and do therapy with other therapists interested in improving their functioning in life or their work. You can see more information about what I do on my web sight centralcoastgestalttherapy.com.

I am grounded in Mindfulness, Somatic Therapy, Gestalt and EMDR, but am also eclectic in how these interweave toward each individuals experience.
"Let your yes be yes, and your no be no!" Asserting your own needs and wants while maintaining love and connection within relationships can seem impossible. The chaos of pleasing others feels overwhelming and our own desires can get lost in transit. That feeling of being on an emotional treadmill- working hard without the results you desire. Help to unravel some of this messiness seems difficult without grace and guidance. The salve of a listener who can also offer insight can be a process toward healing. Whatever the narrative is in your current situation let's figure it out together. Internal self love and joy is possible.

Recovering from an Eating Disorder is a challenging feat. But it can be a journey of self discovery, renewed strength,and the most important gift you give to yourself. I have been in practice in SLO since 1984, first as a Registered Dietitian, and then as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist. I specialize in treating anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and compulsive exercise, for women, men and teens. I have assisted hundreds of individuals to fully recover and go on to lead happy balanced lives. Having recovered myself, I know the pain of disordered eating and the freedom of transcending it.

***CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** With a history of working with men from all walks of life, including athletes, first responders, and students, it is clear to me that many of us are taught to separate our hearts and our heads in order to navigate our lived experience. We learn that emotions are not to be trusted, indeed that they are to be suspended if we are to make intelligent decisions. Along with this mistrust of emotion I often encounter the harmful effects of fatherlessness or abusive/neglectful father figures, which damages our understanding of masculinity and how that masculinity expresses itself in daily life.

Currently, I'm mostly using Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy with my clients. When, as a child, we find ourselves traumatizing or trapped in negative circumstances, parts of our self system compensate by locking away that which at that time was too much for us to handle. Later, if we do not go back to this locked away material, the pain, confusion and injustice of what happened to us long ago, can get triggered, or, awakened, when similar such challenges arise in the present. IFS provides a safe way for that locked away material to be approached and reprocessed, allowing our core self to take back control of our lives.
