My Background

I've been Clinical Supervisor for a geropsychiatric day treatment program, group facilitator for Kaiser, Consultant Faculty for the Calif School of Professional Psychology, Mental Health Specialist for Older Adults and Emergency Services for community mental health programs, Psychiatric Coordinator for Children's Hospital in SF & Mental Health Consultant & Pre-Commitment Investigator for Multnomah County. Specialties include mid-life & older adult issues, LGBTQ, medically complex patients, depression, anxiety, life transitions, self-esteem.

My Values as a Therapist

I believe it's normal and part of life to suffer, get anxious, feel pain, loneliness and sadness. We face challenges that stress us and go through difficult times. My job, as I see it, is to work alongside & partner with you, to help identify what's happening, how you feel, what you want. We work together to better manage stress or find more joy, purpose & satisfaction. You may be facing a difficult life transition or feeling stuck and looking for positive change. I've been trained in many theoretical orientations and I typically blend strategies & interventions that are most sensible & comfortable for you. The therapy relationship is vital for progress and I strive to make our time and place feel safe, affirming, supportive and encouraging.
