I have a warm, collaborative, relational and empowering style. At times we look at what holds you back, and at times we look at the evolving being who is struggling to emerge. Both polarities have something to offer when properly accessed and integrated. Since wounding frequently happens in relationship, healing may best be facilitated in relationship with someone who is accepting all of who you are. Trauma requires a safe and inviting space to move into, and needs delicate handling. I help couples find a way to communicate that makes it safer for both to come forward vulnerably.

Sometimes what brings us to a place of needing help becomes fuel for great transformation. As a therapist, I am in the business of transformation. Often folks come to therapy for relief from certain symptoms or challenges, and understandably so. However, there is also an opportunity in therapy to cultivate a tremendous depth in relationship to ourselves. This depth can infuse our lives with meaning, purpose and a recognition of our intrinsic value in the world. In this light, sometimes our symptoms are signposts telling us that we may be off track. They draw us into change, however uncomfortably. It's an honor to be such a guide.

Adults and teenagers address how the use of substances, alcohol, drugs, food, impacts their lives in negative and unproductive ways. We seek solutions together to more satisfying lifestyles and relationships. I work with couples and individuals having difficulties in relationships, wanting to resolve problems rather than separating or divorcing as the only solution. I work to separate past hurts from present reality. As an Equine Specialist, I use horses and exotic animals as requested.

I offer affordable, quality therapy for those yearning to identify and change dysfunctional thinking, behavior, and emotional responses. Life is stressful enough, that the additional financial cost of therapy should not increase that stress. I believe in offering a sliding scale to those that actively want to change their lives. My training uses a Psychodynamic approach (self awareness of how you feel immobilized) and integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Strength based interventions. This means we work collaboratively, in order to actively change negative thought processes, into patterns that elevate your life rather than hinder your true potential. office locations: MV& Novato.

As LGBTQ people we often find ourselves wondering "where do I belong in this world?" and "why can't I just be myself?" It seems like we've tried everything but we don't feel like we belong or we are in a safe place to live & work. We often wonder... when is this going to get better? When can I just live my life fully how I am? Sometimes we feel sad and it can be a very lonely place. We can even forget just how special and unique we are because we are so different and surrounded by those who just don't get it. We really want someone who can connect to us and make our experiences feel validated, reminding us that we are beautiful.

Right now we are all under a huge amount of stress which can amplify struggles we were already facing. This stress can show up as anxiety, depression, trouble concentrating or feeling overwhelmed. It can show up in our relationships or in our bodies as illness, pain, nervousness or trouble sleeping. We may feel hopeless, lacking purpose, or not safe in the world. I combine talk therapy with a powerful and gentle form of energy work called Soul Lightening Acupressure which clears current and past patterns of tension and beliefs that no longer serve us and connects us with our inner wisdom so we know exactly what best serves us now.

I find that most clients come to me when their old ways of coping are no longer working (or they are unhealthy) and the stress is too much! Also, when they can't avoid the strong feelings bubbling to the surface. Why do it alone. I hold the hope for my clients when they aren't able.
