I work with individuals and couples, addressing a broad range of issues including:
Depression • Anxiety • Relationship Problems • Chronic Illness • Grief • Loss • Divorce • Parenting • Co-parenting • Transitions • Aging • Fertility • Sexuality • Infidelity • Gender • LGBTQ Concerns • Trauma • Addiction • Recovery
I am a warm and skilled clinician who draws upon depth-oriented psychodynamic traditions to which I bring a cognitive-behavioral approach. My work with clients reflects my belief that successful treatment happens through a combination of factors: developing practical skills, exploring the unconscious processes that can influence us, and experiencing the benefits of a rich therapeutic relationship. I offer an engaging and supportive, yet challenging, environment in which to explore your concerns and make meaningful and lasting changes.

I earned my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2011. I am licensed in the state of California as a Marriage and Family Therapist (License #77402). In addition to being an active member of the Santa Cruz Chapter of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT), I am active within the Monterey Bay Psychological Association, and the Santa Cruz Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Society. I continue to develop my clinical skills through regular study, attending trainings and workshops, and by participating with colleagues in a weekly consultation group.
