My Approach to Helping

I currently have openings for new clients residing in California or Texas.

I'm an interactive therapist with over 20 years experience based in the SF Bay Area who provides telehealth services. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a Licensed Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and am a Certified Neuropsychotherapist (NPT-C).

I specialize in providing discreet, confidential support for clients and offer expertise in relationship issues, substance misuse, parenting, blended families, grief and loss, trauma recovery, and professional stress. My approach is trauma-informed with an attachment theory focus. I am trained in and utilize a variety of evidence-based interventions including EMDR, neuropsychotherapy, CBT, DBT, psychodynamic theory, family systems, mindfulness techniques, and others. Clients who work with me often identify the goals of wanting to overcome personal challenges and increase their sense of well-being and life satisfaction. I assist them in reaching these objectives through the use of the therapeutic relationship, experiences and tools.

I utilize Attachment Theory, neuropsychotherapy, Polyvagal Theory, EFT, EMDR, CBT, DBT, Family Systems Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, and a variety of other approaches to provide clients with support and tools that address their unique needs. In addition to providing psychotherapy services since 2001, I've created and facilitated numerous trainings for mental health professionals, developed forensic programming, and run groups in various community agencies. I've also provided clinical supervision services to Master- and Doctoral-level students in training since 2006.
