About My Clients

My clients are smart people with good hearts, who are trying to get unstuck. They might have ADHD, or anxiety, or depression, or simply want to be their best self. Common issues: complicated relationships, academic problems, difficult choices, overthinking everything, self-criticism, and creating positive habits. Commonly, they struggle with their own expectations, and with not knowing what to do when "just try harder" isn't enough.

My Background and Approach

I'm a licensed psychologist, with a PhD from UC Santa Barbara's Counseling Psychology program. My experience blends scientific research, teaching, training in counselor supervision, and doing lots and lots of therapy. Over more than 35 years of doing counseling, I've worked with all kinds of people in all kinds of situations - in locked psychiatric units, family sexual abuse treatment, college health centers and in private practice. Each person, each mind, each heart has been my teacher. I've been a clinical supervisor for psychology postdocs - my trainees have also been my teachers. My approach is active, direct & flexible, employing CBT, mind/body, mindfulness & coaching methods. You'll get feedback, clarify what you want & how to get there. Seeing the big picture, with greater compassion towards yourself & others, greater accountability, practical strategies & a sense of humor helps us, no matter what the problem.
