Being accepted for who we are is one of our most basic needs as humans. With many pieces adding up to create a whole being, it is hard to find someone who can understand without having to explain every time we see them. Repeated explaining and misunderstanding can lead to a feeling of shame and uncertainty that can damage the therapeutic relationship before it starts. I work from a baseline of understanding to help create a safe space for my clients to learn and grow. Therapy should be a laboratory where you can experiment with how you interact with others and present yourself. You are the expert on you. I'm just here to guide.

Sometimes a life event knocks us off course and we struggle to find our way back. When dealing with the aftermath, the process can feel lonely and overwhelming. You find yourself wanting to feel better, but are unable to. You wonder how to move on without feelings of guilt or shame. It feels as if no one understands you or your situation.

I enjoy working with Children and Adolescents. I recognize the value of guiding and helping parents in their goal of improving their family relationships, utilizing play therapy and other psychodynamic techniques and interventions. I help children and adolescents to express their emotions and reactions to challenges in their lives. Families play an essential role in children's healing processes. The interaction between children's problems and their families is always complex. Play therapy helps in multiple Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Disorders.

I help individuals and couples manage distressing feelings. These things arise from a variety of individual or relational circumstances involving conflict, disappointment, hurt feelings, sadness, grief, loss, or other emotional concerns. It can take time to discover the source and learn to heal. I have experience with trauma, attachment, relationship and communication patterns, grief and loss, parent-child relationships (even adult children), premarital and prenatal counseling, life transitions, as well as career selection. I hope my clients become more content with their lives as a result of our work together!

I’m a psychologist fueled by a deep sense of compassion and a desire to bring about real healing in the lives of my clients. Cultivating greater awareness in the mind, body, soul and spirit, I can guide you towards creating a more awakened and centered life. By learning how to reduce reactivity to events, situations and people, you can learn to respond consciously to the things you encounter and begin to create the life you want to live. This process can help move you away from reacting to life towards finding peace within yourself, and connecting more powerfully to your true life purpose.

Life can be a wonderful experience though it is guaranteed to be filled with challenges. We all manage these challenges in different ways, from controlling our food/body, perfectionism, avoidance and over functioning. These methods often leave us exhausted and overwhelmed. If this resonates with you I am here to help. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, self esteem/body image issues and trauma. I work with my clients to identify their own, unique value system which then serves as a guide post through life. By aligning with our values, we create space to accept the difficulties of life and lead a life you desire.

Happiness is possible for each of us. It can seem out of reach, but together we can uncover your goodness and joy. You will feel less worried. You will feel more like you belong here in this world, and in your life. "Mindfulness" sounds complicated, but it simply means being here, at this moment. Feel your toes, notice the colors, breath in--good. That's it. This is something you already know how to do. We will build a practice of gratitude and happiness from this spark.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. Those, haunted by unshakable living memories, suffering countless sleepless nights, or experiencing unexplainable panic reactions that no one understands, need not just exist and simply survive in a distorted reality where the past is still present. Too many times those who just don't get it urge you to "just get over it." Puzzled friends and family can become exhausted when all of their efforts to help fail to make enough of a difference. Frustration can grow into blaming anger, which just adds more layers of misery and self-recrimination.

Namasté is a Brainspotting Therapist and Lawrence's first Accelerated Resolution Therapist (ART). ART uses visualization and rapid eye movement to reprogram the way in which distressful memories are stored in the brain, reducing strong physical and emotional reactions to past experiences. While the premise of Brainspotting is "where you look affects how you feel" and uses points in your visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain, for processing. Both are ideal for treating depression, PTSD, trauma, anxiety, for children and adults. With specialized training in treating traumatic stress.

In my experience, parents often come to that first intake session feeling at a loss on how to make positive change in their child’s behavior. I will listen to you carefully and compassionately as we all come up with a plan that works for your family. Helping children build confidence in themselves, reach goals and reclaim their joy of just being a kid is what drives me every day. I am honored to work with families as they step through the challenging process of understanding what mental illness for their child means for them. I look forward to joining you on that journey.

It takes bravery to start the journey from struggle and pain toward insight, wisdom, and healing. I am committed to assisting you in making gift to yourself and your community. We hear a lot about post-traumatic stress, but it's also very important to invite post-traumatic growth. If the hard knocks of life stay unaddressed - words unspoken, questions unasked, feelings unnamed and unexpressed - we lose our vitality and become limited to negative patterns. A therapeutic alliance can transform and liberate.

I am a clinical psychologist with post doctoral training from Stanford/UCSF and the Menninger Clinic. I have been licensed as a psychologist for 13 years and my training prior to being licensed spanned 10 years. As a therapist I offer an increased sense of safety and structure in reflecting on feelings. In this environment one relaxes and new perspectives emerge -as well as an increased ability to trust and find solutions within one's self. I am both a patient listener as well as an active and engaged clinician who offers personal insights and feedback.
