I welcome all clients but those who might benefit most from my expertise are those who are facing medical illnesses, such as cancer or heart disease, or who would like to change their health behaviors. My interest in health psychology began during my 30-year career as a medical journalist (Internal Medicine News, Pediatric News). I completed my training at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, the Family Medicine Residency Program at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, and the Children's Clinic of SB County. Ideally, I will work collaboratively with your physician to help with your integrated medical care.

During this time I am offering clients the opportunity to meet in the outdoors (e.g. beach, hikes, backyard, ect) as well as through video or phone sessions. Each person entering therapy has a unique reason for what brought them to seek help. Together we can work to explore these personal obstacles and learn to develop the skills needed to grow and embrace our most authentic selves. I have experience working with a variety of demographics most notably specialize in working with teens and young adults, helping them navigate this crazy world in search of their own unique purpose.

Positive Psychology is a valuable tool for reaching new heights, finding one's goals, and feeling supported during challenging times. I am licensed in both California and Washington. Traveling the world has offered a perspective that I use as a tool to support clients. A trusted psychologist tries to remind others of their strengths, how to center, and maintain self-regulation. My work in the field began at the age of 17 when I started volunteering in a children's mental health department of a hospital.

My work is centered in empowering people to fully own their lives. I work from the perspective that each of us is here with a purpose, that the quality of our lives matters and is rooted in empowered choices, and that we have within us the means to find solutions to the challenges that plague us. I help people connect to themselves meaningfully, to have their own back. I help people gain clarity about what is needed to make changes in their lives, and then to go out there and ask for what they need and want effectively so they experience more success and fulfillment: in work, in relationships, in spirituality, in society.

Most people experience anxiety, depression, and a multitude of self, relational, and financial stressors in daily life. Though these experiences are normal for most people now, I hope to help children and adults realize their potentials through goals, hobbies, and processing any emotional or physical burdens that may arise. Coping skills such as thought balancing exercises can be very helpful as well. My approach is warm, connected and fun, yet honest and serious when and if needed. I like helping people focus on their specific strengths and weaknesses in order to begin to help make more positive overall life choices and changes.

Feeling stuck, lonely, depressed, anxious, fearful or unfulfilled? GOOD NEWS...YOU'RE NOT ALONE! I believe true change & growth require a willingness to take risks. Resiliency & self-trust are strengthened by facing & moving through adversity. You can’t “know” what you're capable of until you try. Together, we can explore & map out a plan so you can take that leap of faith, try something new, face your fear or learn to accept the things outside your control. Life can be hard at times...with insight, the right tools, supportive relationships & a little courage you can get through almost anything & live a fulfilled life!

For many people it is hard to ask for help when it comes to sorting out the challenges of life. Making the decision to seek assistance from a therapist is courageous and can be rewarded with a safe, warm and supportive therapy environment. I work with people who often feel they are in crisis, experience anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self and struggle with the relationships in their lives but are motivated to gain insight and skills that are necessary to make lasting positive changes.

Therapy can be one of the bravest and most life-changing experiences you can engage in. It's a personal journey of self-awareness and healing. A key aspect of that process is finding the appropriate therapist to support you on that journey. The right fit is important. My belief is that each person has within them the wisdom to know how to heal. My job as therapist is to help people connect with that inner wisdom and utilize the person's strengths to address the challenges they are currently facing.
