Thanks for visiting. 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. Please note, I am not on any insurance panels. I also train therapists and do therapy with other therapists who want to deepen their personal and work experiences. My goal is to help others live richly, meaningfully, and deeply. I welcome those who find this information resonant.
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. To see an interview of me discussing gestalt therapy go to youtube and look up my interview on The Therapy Corner.
Experienced, empathic, and skilled psychologist offering professional and in-depth processes to help us all grow and thrive. I work most effectively in person but occasionally do virtual sessions when needed.
