My Approach to Helping

For over 28 years, I have been honored to help many individuals, couples and families improve the quality of their relationships. You deserve healthy and healing connections. We will work together to develop treatment plans that are solution focused and build on the personal strengths, cultural and spiritual beliefs of all family members. My office is located in the Sacramento area, in a beautifully decorated building that provides a comfortable, relaxed and safe environment for both adults and young people. Call me to begin your journey toward "Creating Healing Connections."

More Info About My Practice

Although I do not accept insurance, I do offer a sliding scale and payment options that make my services accessible to most people. Feel free to give me a call to discuss these options with you.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Do you feel hurt or betrayed by your partner or spouse? Do you feel disconnected from your teenager? Are you parenting a child who has suffered early trauma? Healing occurs in the context of healthy relationships. I have extensive experience working with foster and adoptive families and the LGBTQ community. I have developed curriculum and trained nationally on topics related to adoption and parenting for both parents and professionals.I use an attachment focused therapy model which is grounded in the latest research.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Many of us grew up in families where we did not learn how to communicate effectively or deal with conflict. If you have experienced early trauma, did not feel accepted by your family or community, you may have grown up believing that the world was not a very safe place. As adults you may find yourself unsure of how to navigate these challenges in your present relationships. You may find yourself triggered by your partnerspouse or children's behaviors, causing you to feel angry, hurt or rejected. Psychotherapy can help you to identify these triggers understand their impact and learn to find new ways of coping. You can learn to be proactive instead of reactive, feel better about yourself and improve your relationships.
