Again, thank you for visiting my site.
I work primarily in the areas of Recovery from Addiction and Codependency, Anxiety, Grief and Depression. I have also helped many individuals who are faced with difficult situations and are looking for help in determining the next right course of action to take. If you are living with a person who you find to be extremely exasperating and it is affecting your sense of worth, you would probably benefit from the patience, insight and experience that I can offer.
My intention is to get to know YOU. I personalize my therapeutic approach on what seems best for you. My job is to listen to you with an open heart and mind in an effort to understand, support, assist, create strategies for you to grow and flourish in whatever way you want. Sometimes a few simple tools, a little explanation and education can be of enormous help in sorting out the BEST direction to take from the alternative.
I use a variety of approaches to treatment including:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
EAP/ Brief Therapy
The majority of people I see are seeking help for problems associated with:
- Adult Children of Alcoholics and Other Dysfunctional Families
- Depression and Anxiety
- Bipolar Disorder
- Grief and Loss
- Work and Career Issues
- Anger and Stress
- Relationship Challenges and Conflict
- Living With or Having History With a Narcissistic or Sociopathic Individuals.
- Issues of Spirituality
- Complex PTSD
- Substance, Behavioral, and/or Habitual Addictions
I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing a confidential, safe and supportive atmosphere. My office is comfortable and beautiful. It is located near the heart of Santa Cruz, CA. in the charming Branciforte Plaza building. In addition, and, for whatever reason, we can also work over the phone.
