The therapeutic relationship can be a unique collaborative experience. It can introduce you to a new way of thinking that can help you overcome obstacles and move toward wholeness, happiness, and living your truth. In a trusting, safe, and affirmative environment, I work with clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds, specializing in life transitions, aging, grief and loss, LGBT issues, career stagnation and job loss, addiction, depression and anxiety, and creative blocks. Accessing my training in humanistic, relational, and narrative techniques, as well as cognitive behavioral exercises, we will work together to help you reach the joy that has been elusive, find the courage to face difficult decisions, and walk through darkness to a clear and beautiful light.

After nearly 30 years in the creative arts as an editor, writer, publisher, and manager, I made the life-altering decision to return to school, and received a Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in 2011. As an intern at Southern California Counseling Center, I currently work with individuals, couples, families, and teens and counsel students at a local high school. In addition, I participated in an intensive family-training program and a school-based counseling program.

I am a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern working under the supervision of Matt Casper, MFT. In some cases, I am able to offer a sliding scale fee based on the client's economic situation.
