welcome

I have over 20 years of experience as a therapist and have worked in many different settings. I can tell you with confidence that therapy works! But finding a therapist you trust and feel comfortable with isn’t always easy. You want someone with the right qualifications, but also someone who is the right fit for you.

Whether this is your first time considering counseling or you’ve been in counseling before, I hope you find the information here helpful. Take a look around and I hope I can be of assistance!

Panel 1

about

It is a privilege to provide psychotherapy to help people improve relationships, feel better emotionally, achieve their goals, and transform communities.

MY APPROACH

I take a relational approach and use cognitive-behavioral techniques, which have been shown to be highly effective with a wide-range of emotional and behavioral conditions. I am also committed to approaching our time together with cultural humility about who you are and what is most important to you.

MY CREDENTIALS

I graduated with a doctorate of psychology (PsyD) from George Fox University and am licensed as a psychologist in the state of California (lic. Psyc 19250). In addition to my work as a clinical psychologist, I taught for over ten years as a professor of psychology at the undergraduate and graduate levels. As a member of my community, I have also been actively involved in faith-based community organizing.

specializations

Therapy can provide the support you need to help protect your health and relationships, even while caring for, supporting, or advocating for others.

women

Many women deal with immense pressure in their personal and/or professional lives–even more so given the pervasive realities of sexism and racism. Feeling overwhelmed and drained, anxious about kids and work, and frustrated with important relationships are common experiences shared by my clients.

I specialize in working with women, many of whom work in helping professions (e.g., medical field, mental health, education, ministry), struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse, or grief. I offer a space that focuses on empowering and supporting you as an individual, without shame or blame, recognizing the unique stressors that women face.

Activists, advocates & healers

Many activists, advocates and other healers, working for equity, justice, and healing are exhausted and depleted. This type of work can leave you feeling isolated from friends and family, bring up personal trauma that is hard to get a handle on, and lead to burnout and compassion fatigue. This can be true whether you’re new to the work or a seasoned professional.

I specialize in working with community leaders and others committed to social, environmental, and racial justice in the areas of advocacy and activism; community organizing and development; direct services; and pastoral ministry. I offer a space that focuses on what you need to care for yourself, while honoring your dedication to the well-being of others.
