I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Santa Barbara, California with over twenty years experience treating individuals, couples, children, and families who are working on issues such as depression, anxiety, learning disabilities, post traumatic disorders, chronic pain and illnesses, substance abuse and addiction, eating disorders, marital and parenting problems, and life transitions.

I have worked in various settings including Sanctuary House, Cal State Northridge, Girl’s Incorporated, Institute of Behavioral Medicine, Santa Barbara Counseling Center, Soujourn - Children’s Services Division, and in Private Practice.

I have a general private practice and specialize in working with trauma, children and adolescents, family therapy, mood disorders, and chronic illness/pain.

Through a variety of therapeutic modalities, including talk, play, and art therapy, sand tray, and dream work using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems approaches, I am able to help people make changes in their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that allow them to move forward in their lives in more positive directions.
