ABOUT ME

As a Psychotherapist, Personal Trainer and Wellness Coach I utilize a mind/body/nature approach in my work with my clients.  I promote transformational change that encourages healthy balances in work, life, spirituality and growth.  My over 20 years’ experience brings a unique integrative approach to overcoming issues such as depression, poor motivation, low self-esteem, negative body image, anxiety, and feeling out of control and disempowered in your own life.  I have supported my clients in learning radical self-acceptance through improving relationships with themselves and others. 


In addition, I have advanced training In Hakomi Mindfulness Based Somatic Psychotherapy as well as the Gottman Couples Therapy Model. 

CLINICAL APPROACH

I approach my psychotherapy work from within an integrative wellness philosophy.  I utilize theoretical orientations from evidenced based practices within the framework of four approaches: Mindfulness Based TherapyStrength Based TherapySolution Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).   I work with my clients to first identify what a truly authentic and passion filled life would be like for them – a process that at times is being considered for the first time.  This understanding guides and directs our work together as I believe that all of us hold within us our own intuitive guide on how to navigate this life while experiencing our truest self.  We can at times find ourselves our own worst enemies as we place defenses (road blocks) in our own way and sabotage our successes. Our work together identifies the reasoning behind such blocks and finds solutions and internal strengths to overcome such obstacles.

TELETHERAPY WORKS

I am utilizing a tele-health platform to work with my clients throughout California. This platform allows my clients to comfortably and safely hold sessions from whatever environment they choose.  Some of my clients prefer a quiet place in their home for sessions and others find sitting in nature to be a helpful way to integrate our work together. You will receive a HIPPA compliant on-line platform link during our scheduled time together.  It's easy, no need to download anything ahead of time.  If you would prefer to meet outside away from WiFi, FaceTime typically works better.  It's entirely up to you.

CLIENT POPULATIONS SERVED

My client populations tend to be adults, couples, teenagers and college students who are looking for positive change and healing in their lives.  In addition

I have worked extensively with adult/teen clients who have been diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illnesses such as: Schizophrenia, Severe Anxiety, Major Depression and Bipolar Disorder.   I also have extensive experience working with LGBTQ+ and transgender populations.  

​Finally, I have well established experience working with individuals and families undergoing obstetric challenges.

I write, teach and have facilitated groups on: Integrative Wellness, S.T.E.P. parenting classes, Support Groups on Self Esteem, Healthy Sexuality, Anger Management, Healthy Living, and a Women’s Empowerment Series based on, “The Four Agreements”.
