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.

Each of us passes through struggles that are difficult to cope with. In working together to form a therapeutic relationship we can become healthier and more able to react more skillfully to the challenges that present themselves. My work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families is based off a strong clinical foundation and woven together with compassion, respect and caring. By resolving some of our issues we can become balanced and find improved overall health (mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, emotionally).

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.

As a former social worker and mental health clinician for 20 years I witnessed families going through extreme circumstances of mental illness, addiction, abuse, children with serious emotional and behavioral problems at home and school, and complex custody cases through the court system. This experience taught me the importance of the therapeutic relationship, building safety and trust, open communication, working with people where they are at, and empathy. I believe it is through this process of being seen, heard, feeling valued and safe that the healing process can begin.

In my practice I blend together the art and science of psychotherapy with a strong focus on global change. My intention is to help you thrive. I use a comprehensive approach with a strong mind-body focus and integrate psychoanalysis with neuroscience.This helps to interpret properly and work more efficiently toward transforming maladaptive mechanisms that stifle your life. Often I use Neurofeedback and Biofeedback and work directly and noninvasively with the brain and the nervous system. This helps you self-regulate and embody change quicker, with less distress. In most cases the results are permanent.

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.

I've been an educator for over 20 years, at Dartmouth College and UC Santa Barbara, where I met many young adults facing stress, anxiety, and depression. Their experience inspired me to start clinical training in 2005 at the New Center for Psychoanalysis in LA, where I have also been a faculty member. My approach to psychoanalysis is interdisciplinary; I'm affiliated with the Neuroscience Institute at UCSB and was a clinical member of THRIVE Infant-Family Program in LA. My current research focuses on the links between biology, sociality, psychology and the environment. I specialize in infant-family therapy, adults, and seniors.

From this meeting place we have the possibility of developing a trusting relationship that allows you to begin to reveal more of who you are, what you experience, and what you want.

My mission as a therapist is to sit with clients in a way that supports healing and growth and encourages discovery of innate wisdom. I believe that we all possess the capacity to know peace, but that sometimes we become disconnected as a result of painful experiences and unhelpful coping patterns. Disconnection can manifest as anxiety, depression, addictive or other self-destructive behaviors, or even psychosis. When symptoms interfere with our ability to have satisfying experiences-- in relationships, at work, and in life in general-- we can benefit from getting help.

I tend to work well with individuals that feel deeply, are highly sensitive to their environment, empathic, and who struggle to connect with themselves and their own needs, often putting others first. Someone interested in re-routing some of their mental energy toward the process of self-attunement, mindful awareness, and self-love, would be a wonderful candidate for my style of work. I insist whenever possible in laughing with my clients, and showing love and care in the way I listen actively, and share my energy with those I support.

Neurotherapy can dramatically speed up your progress towards the life you want. I run this practice with my husband, together we train clinicians in the cutting edge field of clinically-applied neuromodulation. Our neurotherapeutic hardware, strategies & techniques have been adopted by clinicians worldwide because they are highly effective. Watch this video to see how it works: https://youtu.be/KX3VqbZ53tA
