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.

***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.

Follow up counseling and recommendations help clients maximize learning potential. Knowing how to navigate school resources can be intimidating. Maybe you've already tried and felt defeated by the process. I specialize in helping learners understand their own strengths and weaknesses. Better understanding brings relief and knowledge of how to advocate for appropriate accommodations and services in school and college. I also offer gifted IQ testing and counseling for anxiety in high achieving students.

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.

Although it may seem like they only cause discomfort and conflict, these emotional responses can reveal unmet needs.

Peer Relationships in Chico

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Chico

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Chico

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.
