I have worked with adults and children in community mental health agencies, a sexual trauma agency, and a psychiatric hospital. I have special interests in couples work, trauma, biracial concerns, and anxiety. I believe therapy is about building a stronger sense of self through empathy, insight and symptom relief. I will be there to provide understanding, support and a different view of the problem that makes progress attainable and installs hope. Therapy provides an opportunity to grow as a person, get through personal struggles including mental illness, and strengthen relationships.

I have been a psychotherapist for 30+ years. My preference is to work with people who want to go beyond immediate problem solving to an understanding of the underlying causes of their difficulties. I am aware of how challenging it can be to choose a therapist. My work style is to listen deeply and be collaborative. I am interactive and direct and use the therapy relationship to understand dynamics that may not be visible to my client. I have a strong belief in our potential to grow and change especially with increased awareness within a therapy relationship.

"Seeking out a therapist and entering therapy can sometimes be an intimidating prospect. My goal as a therapist is to create a therapeutic environment that puts a client at ease and supports self-exploration in a safe, comfortable atmosphere. A client's desire for growth and change is a very personal journey and I believe in an individualized approach that supports each person's expressed need. Life is littered with suffering in different forms and I want to aid my clients in developing a deeper understanding of this suffering and meaning to what may feel meaningless."

Have you ever been lost in a dark forest? You may have felt helpless, out of control, very scared, or confused. Perhaps you suffer from anxiety, depression, and grief. If so you need someone to hold your hand and walk with you until you get home safely. When you are going through very painful suffering, your brokenness can lead you to discover how your childhood wound might affect your self-esteem and your relationships. I like to work with adult women who have been abused as a child, battered women (intimate partner abuse), and young adult women with childhood wounds.

Psychotherapy isn't one size fits all. It's a unique relationship that develops and responds to your needs, life-experiences, ethnic/cultural identity, challenges and resources. You may be feeling stuck-repeating painful patterns, wanting to make changes but not knowing how. Or you're a survivor of sexual violence and the ways you've been coping aren't working anymore. I meet you where you are and bring my clinical and life experience, deep listening, compassion, acceptance, warmth and creativity. Together we create and draw on the power of a safe, accepting therapeutic relationship to support your growth and wholeness.

My focus is to develop a relationship with the client. This is called the two person model which is different than the old fashion practice where the doctor is one up and the client is one down. Rather, the two person model attempts to understand the client through questions and mutual discussion. I am not a silent therapist. I give feedback and remain fully engaged with the patient. Together we build a rapport. I adhere to a humanistic approach.

I believe that we grow through our struggles. They often point to parts of ourselves that are denied or have been banished to adapt to our early environments. In learning how to relate to and integrate more of our wholeness, we experience a greater capacity for and flexibility in relationships as well as a greater resiliency in their lives. I work with clients to increase awareness of themselves and their patterns, both healthy and unhealthy, to have greater choice and freedom in the way they live, and to discover lifepaths that authentically express who they are.

Picking a therapist? It's confusing and scary to open up to someone new. If you have felt invisible, not seen, not heard, undervalued or dismissed. I can help. If you have known grief, trauma or unfulfilling relationships. I can help. If you've felt "you are not enough". I can help you learn how to speak "I am enough as I am". I treat people who live roller coaster lives, had parents who neglected and abused them, are lonely/disconnected, strive for perfectionism in everything. I can help you learn how to: trust again, feel your emotions, accept your past, love & forgive yourself.

Many of us walk around every day wearing some version of a mask. Some of us do so to protect or take care of others, some of us wear the mask to fit in, and some of us wear it because of shame. My hope is that everyone I work with becomes a little bit more comfortable with the person underneath the mask-- their true authentic self. Whether you struggle with depression, anxiety, the effects of trauma, addiction, or difficulty in relationships with others, I truly believe the therapeutic relationship can be a healing one, and be the first step in taking off your mask.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in California, 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in California are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in California

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in California you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in California and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in California or family therapy in California.
