Welcome!

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and work with individuals, couples, and families. I see children, adolescents, and adults in Santa Barbara County and in the Santa Ynez Valley.

I believe people of any age deserve to be understood and I support clients in letting me know their concerns, questions, and needs. My approach is strength based and empathically supportive; providing a safe space to process and grow, guiding with necessary counsel, and resources to help you reach your goals.

My areas of interest are children, adolescents, complicated trauma, complicated grief & loss, anxiety, attachment issues, head injuries, parenting, mental illness, relationships, and depression. My years of training, education, and experience in these areas and others have given me a richly diverse background to draw from. The "Personal Statement" under "Forms," gives more information about me and my orientation.

I am available to meet through telehealth; videoconferencing or telephone, and welcome questions about my practice, office policies, and style. I am available to meet in-person, in the Santa Ynez Valley. You can call or email me with questions or to set up an appointment to meet. I look forward to hearing from you.
