In addition to adult individuals and couples, I work quite well with difficult adolescents and pre-teens, and can tolerate a high degree of intensity in therapy sessions. I am uniquely capable of providing a containing and non-judgmental space, and am particularly interested in working with issues that arise as a result of counter-culture lifestyles. I bring a social justice perspective to my work, meaning that I take the entirety of my clients' environment as equally important and formative as their early childhood relationships and mental processes.

As a psychologist, I support the nourishment of mental health and well-being where ever you may be in your life. The journey can be challenging. Patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving help one navigate through life. Sometimes those patterns create barriers and overwhelming feelings. Conflicts, anger, confusion, people-pleasing, worry, and sadness may interfere. Allow me use my life's learning and 10 years of clinical psychology experience to help you work toward your goals and find relief.

I work collaboratively with clients to explore socio-cultural considerations, how we fit or don't fit in that context and our opportunities for growth. We'll sort through to find and examine unconscious patterns and get creative to generate alternatives that put you more in line with your goals and life purpose. If you don't know what those are, we'll figure that out too.
