About

My ideal client is self-reflective & insightful, committed to the work of therapy. Though many of us were wounded in childhood, few of us have had the opportunity to work through the challenges life presents. Our time together will bring relief from worries, fears, work stress, low self-esteem & self-blame which greatly constrict our lives. Those I work with will want a compassionate guide for the purpose of more fully enjoying life & relationships. I work with separating & divorcing families, parents & children, where circumstances are particularly challenging, who want better things for themselves and their children.
My approach uses insight & psycho-education. I look at our challenges/scars thru the lens of family history, relationships, undercurrents of our thoughts & feelings.I listen deeply, providing an environment which allows new experiences to unfold. I offer children a safe place to process what has happened; tools for parents to assist their children in coping.
It is lovely to be able to talk over the phone/videoconference should my approach sound like a match for you. After the phone call, we will both have a better sense of our fit. I am an out of network provider for insurance. Secure video conferencing is available. Kaiser/Magellan will not cover any services I provide.
