I am larger and better
than I thought. I did not think
I held so much goodness

-Carl Rogers


Feeling lost because your vitality has somehow disappeared?

Maybe low energy is affecting your work or tension is making important relationships less satisfying. It can be confusing when the past starts to collide with the present. This just isn’t the way you want to live your life.

What I know is that there is hope. What has wounded you in the past can be healed, so you can move forward with strength, and thrive. What I also know is that sometimes it can be helpful to share the hurt with a caring and supportive therapist – someone who is willing to travel on this important journey with you.

So what I do is work with adults who have been injured in important relationships. I am an MFT (Marriage and Family Therapist) in Santa Barbara, California, and I treat individuals who want to understand themselves better and feel closer and more connected with the people around them.

Together, in therapy, we create a space where you discover the vitality to become bigger than what wounded you.

Please know that you don’t have to go through this alone. If you would like therapeutic support, I’d like to help.

Please call me at (805) 252-1849 or email me at:

I look forward to speaking with you.

My Philosophy

To survive painful attachment experiences, you found solutions that may now seem confusing or frightening to you. Yet, they were the best options available to you at the time. You may have learned to protect yourself by distancing from others, denying or forgetting, or minimizing the reality of what was happening.
