Practice Description:
I am currently providing teletherapy with a secure video conferencing connection. I am not seeing any clients out of my office at this time due to safety concerns re COVID-19.

For over 40 years I have worked as a clinical social worker and I’m still excited about learning and growing and supporting the growth of my clients. My clients are adults of all ages from young adults through the various stages of adulthood into the years of elderhood. Clients who work with me might be dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, identity issues, traumatic events or childhood wounds, grief and loss, health issues for themselves or their loved ones, or issues of aging. I have worked with those dealing with lifecycle transitions or those stuck in patterns, negative or limiting beliefs that are no longer serving them and are desiring meaningful change.

My work integrates various modalities for healing and transformation including Somatic Experiencing, Comprehensive Resource Model, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. I am certified as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner as well as certified in advanced touch skills that support the work of nervous system regulation and healing from traumas – traumatic events as well as developmental trauma from childhood. For those desiring a spiritual lens through which we do the work, I am certified as a Spiritual Director and work with people from all faiths and spiritual paths. I am skilled at creating and facilitating lifecycle ceremonies and rituals for those desiring these special events. I am licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in both California and Colorado.

If you are wanting support with cultivating a life of well-being, meaning and joy, I invite you to contact me for a consultation. Together we can create a path for your healing, growth and transformation.
