Practice Description:
Virtual and phone sessions are offered during shutdown.

I offer counseling services for adults and couples.. My therapeutic style could be described as intuitive, empathic, friendly - and interested. Although sessions are informal and conversational, I will stay "in the trenches" with you to provide support during confusing or challenging times. Beyond support, my mission is to empower and uplift by facilitating self-awareness, fostering self-acceptance, and celebrating self-expression. To that end, I am committed to my own spiritual practice, personal authenticity and self-care. I also draw upon the wisdom of a multitude of systems including the enneagram and the teachings of various masters.

For 25 years, I have successfully treated stress, anxiety, depression, phobias, post-traumatic stress, and depression ( among other problems) utilizing EMDR, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic approaches. EMDR is a reprocessing therapy in which the left and right hemispheres of the brain are stimulated alternatively by eye movements, sound, or physical taps. What makes this treatment remarkable is the ease with which traumatic content and emotional patterning is cleared and well-being is restored.

Virtual and phone sessions are available. I am a participating provider on many insurance panels. Please note that I previously have had offices in Sacramento, Nevada, Shasta, and Siskiyou counties.
