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.

If you are struggling with problematic life situations such as trauma, grief, relational issues, or other emotional difficulties, then now is the time to address them. Change can be a scary process and taking the first step to deal with a difficult problem may seem overwhelming. Working with a professional therapist can help to make those life transitions and the process of change more manageable, achievable and rewarding. I have spent the last twelve years helping people resolve a variety of difficult psychological and emotional problems.

ABLE TO DO PHONE SESSIONS. Life can be incredibly lonely and painful at times. My goal is to support you, gently and honestly, towards increased self respect and worthiness. Licensed since 1999, I have vast experience with children, families, and adults. Depression, anxiety, complicated traumas and grief; issues regarding foster care and adoption; sexual abuse, parenting, and/or child welfare are areas I'm well versed in. I'm genuine and compassionate. Most important to you should be finding a therapist with whom you're comfortable. That's not always easy, but it can be well worth your efforts. I'd be honored to be chosen by you.

I am honored to do the work of holding space for individuals and families as they process through past and ongoing traumatic and distressing experiences. Integrating Trauma and Attachment-Focused Therapies, Play and Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Existentialism, and Psycho-education, I assist clients in healing and growing from what they have experienced in life. We are incredibly resilient and the strength within us sometimes needs a little guidance when we find ourselves in the dark. We will likely look at communication issues, attachment, choosing more effective coping strategies, and finding new ways to make life full and meaningful.

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.

Perhaps, you are feeling "stuck"- overwhelmed by relationship issues, career, loneliness, anxiety or depression. Maybe, coping with life's daily stresses is getting you down, making it increasingly difficult to find & experience meaning and joy. These are difficult times, difficult issues, & sometimes it's hard to get through them alone.

Almost all of us fear our anger, but a nearly equal portion fear our love. This is a problem, since almost no one teaches us how to work with these forces or even what they are (let alone how they relate to each other as both separable and intermingling phenomena). Insofar as we fail to understand these basic facts, we remain fragmented and alienated from our own nature. We all love and hate, often in equal measure, by nature.

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").
