My Approach to Helping

There are times in life in which everyone needs support. At times, anxiety or depression can become so overwhelming. At other times it might be intimate relationships that cause pain and confusion. Connection with one's parents or children can also be a source of struggle and frustration. Sometimes it is work or a career that feels stagnant. Whether you are struggling with painful emotions, need support with relationships, or are in a time of transition, I am honored to help. My goal is to help you integrate, or make sense of, your past, your thoughts, and your feelings coming to a place of greater compassion for yourself.

We will address your concerns from a body, mind, and soul perspective. I use methods of talk therapy, mindfulness, and body-centered techniques. But most of all, you can expect therapy tailored to your unique situation, challenges, and goals. I strive to be a loyal ally and advocate for your well-being. In therapy, you will be respected, supported, and heard.

Please reach out to me for a free phone consultation to see if I am the right fit for you. I look forward to talking with you.

More Info About My Practice

My comfortable, ground level office is located in downtown Santa Cruz, however with one extra perk: private parking is available behind the building! I offer therapy in a relaxed, warm, and non-judgemental environment. I work with a wide variety of issues: anxiety, depression, relationship problems, grief and loss, stress, and feelings that overwhelm. Many people are helped simply by talking to someone who cares and who understands. I will work with you in a gentle and profound way--developing insights, building healthier relationships, and connecting to all parts of yourself. In therapy, we will work towards moving to a place where you feel more anchored, more connected, and more in control. Regardless of what has brought you to therapy, your desired focus will lead our work together.
