About My Clients

TAKING NEW CLIENTS NOW ACROSS CALIFORNIA. Are you anxious, exhausted, uninspired, or overwhelmed by life? Burdened with shame, pain, fear or frustration in your relationships? On-line or in-person counseling support and relief is available to you today. Mindful, Somatic and CBT therapy for adolescents 12+, teens, adults, couples and families.

My Background and Approach

I see each client as unique and my approach is highly individualized based upon your strengths, challenges and goals. I bring an extensive library of skills and tools that I have used for over 25 years. I am relational and systemic in my approach, encouraging your personal development within a holistic framework of somatic and mindfulness-based CBT. For example, your autonomic nervous system (through the breath) can be harnessed to provide immediate relief from panic attacks, so I will teach you how to work with your body and mind, rather than fighting or fleeing from it.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe all people possess an inherent capacity to heal, grow and change regardless of their past, their upbringing or their current circumstances and that all people need love and appropriate support in order for this healing, growth and change to happen. I believe that change happens when people are connected to themselves with unconditional compassion, self-respect and self-love. When this powerful connection to self is reflected and matched with robust systems of support, then true health and wellbeing are achieved. As a lifelong educator and learner I seek to empower my clients with information that supports their resilience and capacity to know, love and care for themselves while being a part of the world around them in meaningful, healthy ways. I am Black Lives Matter and LGBTQI+ allied. Kink aware and adept in addressing the unique challenges of both traditional monogamy and Ethical Non-Monogamy.
