I have been working with parents in the Sacramento area since graduating from UC Davis with a major in psychology and a minor in human development in 1999.

I utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Narrative, and a Psychodynamic approach to work with teens and adults experiencing low self-esteem, grief, anxiety, depression, codependency, major life transitions, self-harm, and leadership and spirituality issues.
It can be difficult and uncomfortable to talk to someone we barely know about our thoughts and feelings, especially if they are upsetting to us. At some point in our lives, we will need someone to walk with us for awhile. Therapy is about me walking with you. I consider this a privilege and love helping people see how valuable they are, no matter what they have gone through.

You are human. And that means you are in the middle of living out a great story - your life. Most likely it has been many things - tragic, dramatic, romantic, comedic. Lately though, the story is off. Unexpectedly, twists have been written into the plot and there's despair, depression, anxiety, panic, confusion, and hopelessness. Who you know you are deep inside doesn't match what's happening outside. You're feeling stuck somehow, not recognizing your self, and want to feel differently. You urgently want the story to change and are tired of the way things are. There is another story that can be written.

My style as a therapist is both affirmative and challenging. I seek to support and understand you so that we may together identify the obstacles that keep you from living a more fulfilling and creative life. Therapy often involves the following processes: Changing reactive patterns of behavior, like compulsive eating or the destructive use of anger. Learning about your "filters," which are habitual ways of interpreting life events that stem from your unique conditioning. Developing skills to modulate uncomfortable feelings, such as anxiety or sadness. Strengthening your core sense of self and values.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in East Sacramento, Sacramento, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
