Worry, stress, fear, depression, anxiety, loss, and trauma can leave you feeling numb, isolated, and hopeless. These painful experiences and emotions can and do change. I provide a safe and supportive environment where you can begin to feel connected and empowered. In our sessions we attend to your feelings and thoughts as well as what is going on in your body. When you feel sad, your body responds with fatigue and tiredness and your thoughts are usually self-critical and negative. When you feel happy, your body responds with energy and joy and your thoughts are full of optimism. You can find a way of healing and connecting to inner happiness through your body, mind, and soul....and as you do, your life will change. Feelings and thoughts come and go, the trick is learning how to manage the ones we don't like. The other thing is, cultivating a daily practice of self-compassion and gratitude can change your life. Together we figure out what you can DO to make the changes you want for yourself. It is about empowerment and connection so that you can fully embrace your life and make the changes you want.

More Info About My Practice
Payment and Fees: Money is important, especially if you are going to pay someone with the hope of them helping you! I am a licensed psychotherapist in California which means that I am covered as an out of network provider for PPO's and POS. If you choose this option, you will get reimbursed for 30% of the cost of our session. If this applies to you, then I will mail a super bill to you that you submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
My fee is $125 per one hour session whether you are using insurance or private pay. I realize not everyone paying out of pocket can afford this rate, so I also offer a sliding scale. Please don't hesitate to ask. I accept cash and checks in my office, and credit cards via Paypal which can be accessed through my website. Payments are due at time of service or prior to the session.
In addition to straight talk therapy, I also am certified in the following areas: Somatic Experiencing, Dance-Movement Therapy, Expressive Arts, Authentic Movement, and Yoga. I have over 30 experience inegrating the body and non-verbal modalities into the psychotherapeutic process. I have also studied indigenous healing practices with elders in Guatemala and Peru.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My specialities include trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and loss.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is a form of healing from the past so that we may step into the present moment with a kind mind, calm body and open heart.
