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.

Don’t be scared to start putting yourself and your needs first! Often times, we as individuals put everyone else’s needs ahead of our own, therefore neglecting ourselves, which ultimately is not fair to ourselves or our families. Scared to start therapy, because of societal judgment? Well, don’t be, as times have changed and stigma surrounding mental health is slowly ending. Therapy is needed now more than ever, especially given these challenging times. It is during these uncertain, unpredictable times that I am here to help you, your child, family or you and your partner. It is during these times that I help you see your worth.

As human beings we can develop painful, dysfunctional habits that keep us from connecting fully to self and others. At those times an objective therapist using a variety of approaches can help reconnect with self and others in healthier, more collaborative ways. I know that strong, collaborative interpersonal relationships provides the healing force for our emotional wounds and other stressors. Target populations: couples, children and teens struggling with control of Type I Diabetes, Gender Identity questions and transitions; firefighters and police officers experiencing acute and chronic stress related symptoms at work and home.

I offer you a 'strength based' therapy. I use support, introspection, assessment, direction and referral as a way to bring change to your life. We all experience loss, doubt, changes in our life beyond our control. For some people 'Therapy' is a place to re-charge. For others is it a vital experience needed to explore core issues ( trauma ) and re-organize their sense of self and move forward. I believe I offer a safe place for you to grow. I enjoy working with teens and their parents on issues of anxiety, depression, eating disorders and conflict. I am a survivor of the Camp Fire and feel qualified to work with other survivors.

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").

I work with teens and young adults trying to navigate the ups and downs of social pressure along with the academic, parental, and societal expectations youth face daily. I help them process their experiences and feelings so they can better communicate with others and advocate for their needs in ways that draw people closer instead of pushing them away. I also work with adults who have been experiencing anxiety while transitioning or adjusting to various life changes - some positive changes can still bring stress, fear, and relationship conflict.
