Are you facing a difficult situation? or feeling "stuck?" You may be riding the waves of divorce, midlife shifts, career change, or loss. Perhaps a relationship is at risk? Or, your child may be struggling with the effects of family upheaval or low self-esteem? Do you want to change emotionally and recover your inner balance?

Specific focus areas include: mood and motivation, anxiety, past trauma, loss and grief, relationships, life transitions, cancer journey, creativity, performance, and practical problem-solving. Women dealing with shifts in midlife and beyond are an important part of my practice. My clients choose goals ranging from basic counseling and practical problem-solving to deeper, more transformational work.

Whether we meet for therapy, counseling, or consultation, my goal is for you to feel safe, heard, and validated. I provide clear, reliable responses to your questions---with a sense of direction and next steps. For healing, growth, clarity, and confidence contact me and let's explore how I might support you and your personal goals.

My book, MIDLIFE CHECK-IN: WHO AM I REALLY? A GUIDE TO DEEPENING YOUR SENSE OF SELF IN MIDLIFE AND BEYOND was published recently and is available online and in Monterey County, CA bookstores.
Primary Specialty

Marriage & Family Therapist

Gender Female
Services AS A THERAPIST, I focus primarily on the emotional and developmental challenges of individuals and couples and on personal transformation in midlife and beyond.

I begin our work together by gaining an understanding of what you are seeking and the specific issues and needs involved.
I also want to assess what approach(-es) fit your comfort zone. I work with verbal and nonverbal therapies: Cognitive, Solution-Focused, Psychodynamic, Dream work, EMDR, Jungian Sandplay, Imagery and Mind-Body. I regularly draw on current neuroscience research as it relates to effective cognitive and emotional therapy.

AS A GIFTEDNESS CONSULTANT, I provide practical information and support regarding the unique social-emotional needs and risks of accelerated intellectual and creative development. I am a community resource for gifted adults, couples, and families, and for educators. In addition to working directly with gifted individuals, I work with those who teach, parent, and/or live with them.

Held periodically during the year, this half-day workshop honors the unique challenges and gifts of the midlife journey. It is not a therapy group, but an opportunity to find out what is "normal" or not; the psychological shifts that we experience; the day-to-day ways we are challenged, shifted, and transformed during this time; and the core tasks of our midlife years and beyond. In addition to being informative and eye-opening, it is an opportunity for reflection and to engage in dynamic conversation with other proactive midlife women! Group is limited to 8.
