My role as therapist is not to tell you what to do, or try to fix you, nor is it to sit quietly and nod and ask how you feel. You are the expert of yourself and your life and have the ability to heal and change and the inner wisdom to find your way to those places of transformation. As a companion and guide along the way our work together will be collaborative and directed by your goals and insights.  I am grounded, warm, compassionate, and accepting. While I draw on my knowledge of various theories and practices, I strive to meet you exactly where you are and go from there.

I earned a Master's in Counseling from Sonoma State University in 2005. I have worked for various community agencies and public schools providing individual, group, and couples counseling. Currently I see individuals in my private practice in Sebastopol.
