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.

Living your life fully is an ongoing process of learning how to allow your authentic self to survive and thrive despite life's challenges. When we are hurting, we forget that at the core of our being we have inner greatness, unique gifts, and a legacy that needs to be liberated and brought forth into this life. When we are wounded we tend to get trapped by the defenses we build to protect ourselves. These ways of protecting ourselves cause relationship issues, create ongoing patterns of pain and conflict for ourselves and others, and prevent us from living fully who we are. In the journey together we move at your pace in compassionately exploring and liberating your inner authentic self.

My awareness of human sexuality rises above my own personal opinion and experiences. I affirm all sexual orientations and transgender experience. I help people reclaim their authentic sexual selves within their particular spiritual/religious/lifeview practice and I tailor my treatment to best fit each individual client. I address a client's sexual issues directly. I don't sidestep the sex part to deal with the other issues in the relationship, although I don't ignore them either. Physiological, psychological, emotional and spiritual processes, are all a part of human sexuality and I understand that an integrated approach is necessary.

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.
