My Approach to Helping

You may be educated, even outwardly successful, but struggle to feel good about yourself, have difficulties with close relationships or just want more out of life. I believe it's human to struggle and that we all can benefit from self-exploration.

Your mind is like your GPS for living, so you'll benefit from efforts to make it as accurate and glitch-free as possible. I can help you get a deeper understanding of you - your psychology and how your mind works, in the context of your history and cultural experiences. Therapy with me is not a one-size-fits-all experience. With greater self-awareness, self-compassion, and realism, your life's journey can involve fewer self-inflicted detours as well as greater tolerance for the inevitable bumps along the way.

You may desire higher self-esteem, or less anxiety, or to feel more comfortable with closeness or vulnerability. Or you may want to improve your communication skills or work on parenting. The better you understand your operating system - your sensitivities, anxieties, and patterns of reacting - the more skillful you'll become in responding to life's inevitable challenges. Everyone in your life benefits, not just you.

With humor and compassion, alongside extensive training and 20 years of experience in private practice, I'll help you develop the self-awareness, skills and solutions that you need so that you can grow from your struggles and live up to your potential. My approach is flexible and practical, tailored to meet your needs for getting at the root of what is getting in your way. I'm LGBTQIA sensitive and welcoming.

More Info About My Practice

I offer TELEHEALTH therapy to clients residing in the states of California, North Carolina, and Washington. Please see my website for more information about my services, approach, background and fees. I do not offer in-person therapy.

Even though therapy offers a chance to make long-lasting positive changes in your life, I know that finding the right therapist and starting psychotherapy is often a difficult decision. I invite you to contact me to assess your needs at no cost by phone. There are no forms or paperwork to fill out, so why wait to start feeling better? I welcome your inquiry and look forward to hearing from you.
