Announcement icon I offer confidential teletherapy at this time. I look forward to seeing clients in person when the state of CA determines it is safe.
These uncertain times can feel overwhelming. The world can seem frightening. Many folks feel isolated and exhausted. Others may feel anxious, depressed, or both. Now is a great time to seek therapy and find a safe place to connect, mine resources, discover tools and explore ways to help you manage challenges. I provide a warm, practical and comfortable practice where you can expect to be treated with respect, kindness, a sense of humor, compassion and over 25 years of experience with teens and families. I have a diverse practice and experience working with a variety of folx. Please contact me, I'm here to help.
Growth can happen when you feel safe, and understood, without judgment. My approach is based on individual needs, and is a compassionate, integrative model. My work incorporates multiple models including CBT, Family Systems, Narrative and Solution Focused Therapies. I build upon strengths and resources, with expertise and collaboration.
Challenges truly can be opportunities, they offer information to help us grow and change. When people are in pain I know how important it is to have a compassionate and safe place to find ways to heal, to feel and to function better. I can help you find sustainable, sensible solutions that makes sense to you. Come in and talk, plan, work, practice and heal.
