About Me:

I can trace my interest in psychotherapy to when I was fifteen years old; I wanted to find a way to live that respected not only the outer world and its demands but valued what arose from deep within a person's inner life. My experience of feeling that authentic place in the presence of another's witness, to be seen and heard without judgment or condition, have been the basis for my own growth and development. My roles as daughter, sister, partner, mother and friend have humbled me and brought incredible joy to my life. I have a deep trust in the impulse toward growth and the capacity of the human being to find balance in the midst of change.

My private practice office is located in Santa Rosa at 405 Chinn Street where I offer couples therapy, pre-marital counseling, individual therapy and family work. I see children and support parents in developing their parenting skills. My clinical experience includes working with life passages including grief work, divorce, and the empty nesting process as well as the transition from couple to family when a baby is born.

My orientation in therapy:

I view therapy as an invitation to pause from our habitual ways of being so we may explore the restrictions, whether individually or in relationship, that keep us from engaging in life in a more satisfying way. I believe we have many ways of knowing including the mental processes, the emotional body, as well as a body-centered, somatic intuition and experience which each offer us their wisdom and direction. Mindfulness practice is a valuable adjunct to therapy.
