 Welcome.  Are you looking for help with worry, stress, anxiety or depression?  Please call (805) 601- 6100 to schedule a free phone consultation on how we may work together towards taking control, feeling better and improving your relationships. 

    With a caring and practical approach, I work with adults with depression, anxiety, stress, grief, or family and relationship issues. I use  proven, evidence-based tools to help you manage these feelings and begin to feel better quickly. 

    I have a passion for helping couples learn how to build a stronger, happier relationship, and to reconnect. I counsel parents with the challenges of raising children positively while still taking care of yourself and your relationship. 

    For adults or couples who pracitce a Faith Tradition,  I also offer Faith based Counseling.  Faith based counseling incorporates the tools and values of the client’s faith. Whether you practice a faith, or are atheist or agnostic, we will incorporate your culture and belief system.

    I also have specialized training and personal experience in managing chronic illness and grief.  If you have lost a loved one, I can help you find the way again, to breathe, to remember them in joy.

   I look forward to speaking with you.  Call for your free phone consultation.  You deserve to feel better, you can feel better!    

  

 

                                        

 

    Depression, anxiety, grief, or stress can feel like inescapable weights or burdens.  Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfulness therapies have been demonstrated to be helpful for these difficult, painful feelings.

    You can learn tools to feel better. In counseling I can show you how to do this, supporting you along the way, step by manageable step. 

Love can grow, heal, deepen.

Has your relationship suffered?  Do your arguments leave you feeling hurt, misunderstood, or even worse off than if you hadn’t talked at all?  Is their distance between you and you don't know how to get back to the closeness you once had?  Do the stresses of work or parenting leave you exhausted with no time left over for your partner?

    In Couples counseling, I can help you enhance and improve your relationship.  We will look at the patterns which increase your understanding and closeness, and those which are undermining your relationship.  We will work together towards improved communication, closeness, mutual respect, deepened understanding, trust, and intimacy.
