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.

Each of us passes through struggles that are difficult to cope with. In working together to form a therapeutic relationship we can become healthier and more able to react more skillfully to the challenges that present themselves. My work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families is based off a strong clinical foundation and woven together with compassion, respect and caring. By resolving some of our issues we can become balanced and find improved overall health (mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, emotionally).

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.

Welcome, our practice at Insight Neuropsychology specializes in personalized neuropsychological assessment and treatment services to assist you in promoting your cognitive health. Our goal is to help you learn about how your brain is functioning, as insight is the first step in learning how to improve your mental functions. Neuropsychological assessment is one of the most sensitive instruments for detecting subtle cognitive deficits that are not obvious on MRI's or other brain scans, but which can have a large impact on a person's daily functioning. In addition to assessment, we also provide supportive counseling for patients and caregivers.

I practice Positive Psychology, the study of what makes life worth living. Things that are good in life are every bit as important and genuine as what is bad. What is good isn’t simply the absence of problems, but is something that exists in its own right. Good isn’t the reverse or reciprocal of disorder, but stands on its own and requires its own explanation. We can look at the positive aspects of life and help an individual develop a balanced view of their circumstances and how they plan to address the issue(s) they are facing.

Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to reflect on the deeper dimensions of your experience, and to recognize your own unique callings in life. The goal in existential therapy is to experience greater freedom in making the choices that empower you to be the kind of person you most want to be. Psychological freedom is twofold: freedom from the unwarranted fears, anxieties and assorted forms of emotional distress that constrict our life engagements, and at the same time, a freedom to engage in the vital relationships, creative activities, and genuine responsibilities that characterize a meaningful and fulfilling life.

We are living in very stressful times that challenge us to find meaning. Often the very painful issues that bring people to therapy -- anxiety and/or depression, difficulty with relationships, life-cycle transitions, trauma, illness, aging, lack of purpose and belonging -- present a wonderful opportunity for exploration, growth, and development. I especially enjoy working with individuals in transition, whether in early adulthood, mid-life, or the "third chapter" of older age and have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with feelings of not fitting in, living non-traditional lives or in non-traditional relationships.

Life inevitably brings challenges that affect our sense of well being and create strain in important relationships. Sometimes this can lead to just feeling "off" or incomplete or distressed about not being able to make sense of it all. Sometimes repetitive patterns of thinking and feeling can leave us feeling stuck and blocked. I believe psychotherapy offers a helpful and meaningful opportunity for sorting through these difficulties and identifying sources of strength and greater fulfillment. I know it can be difficult to reach out for help - I would be honored to talk with you if you are considering taking this first step.

Life is truly uncertain, yet the current pandemic has highlighted and intensified this experience for many of us. COVID-19 is changing how we look at and experience life, work and relationships, thus creating new thoughts and feelings about our lives. Whether you are encountering anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues and/or other possibly debilitating physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual obstacles they can be worked with during this time of uncertainty. Additionally, with over 15 years of experience in various healthcare settings I work with burnout, compassion fatigue, moral distress and other stressors.
