I am a psychologist experienced in helping children, teens and adults. My experiences in the mental health field began in 1981 and include working with the seriously mentally ill, treating traumatized children, and working with the oppressed. These experiences have taught me the importance of maintaining compassion for others even when they are in extreme states or are easily wounded. Working with different cultures has taught me to respect the world view and values of others. My background helps me to understand struggles of all types with a greater depth and sensitivity. All problems, worries and concerns are significant and deserving of a serious approach.

I enjoy working with individuals, families, and couples strengthening self-reliance, self-awareness, familial as well as relational bonds. During these times, therapy has its challenges and can be quite confusing. This is especially true for younger children. Through the use of telehealth, I do what I can to make therapy a comfortable experience.

***Please note: I'm not on insurance panels, but accept clients utilizing out-of-network benefits*** One of the most challenging, frightening, and rewarding endeavors any person can do is to decide that things need to be different. How that needs to look may involve both expected and unanticipated barriers, feel overwhelming, lead to questions about personal meaning and purpose, or trigger what feels unresolved. We may not figure out all the answers and solutions together, but you don't have to move through it alone. My hope is to help you emerge more empowered, heard, supported, resilient, and clear about what you need.

If you struggle with anxiety or depression, you know how difficult it can be to cope. Anxiety is easy to recognize. We worry more, avoid difficult situations, and feel tense, awkward, or ineffective. Depression feels exhausting and hopeless. We judge ourselves and other people harshly, feel intense sadness, and become passive. It can feel like we can't do anything right or that things never go our way. Imagine being more active, skilled, and competent, communicating more effectively in relationships, being more productive at work or school, and feeling more satisfied with life.

Our world seems to be spinning out of control. Troubles we didn't know we had to worry about are now a daily reality. Working from home while homeschooling our sweet (but sometimes difficult) children can increase family stress and parenting guilt. Children may act out with increased defiance, distractibility, anger outburst, clinginess or sleep issues. Teens may withdraw, become moody, lose interest in hobbies or hygiene, or lack hope for the future ("It doesn't matter anyway," "I don't care").
