“Life is to enjoy and a little help can make the difference you never imagined possible. When we reach the tipping point in our lives it's hard to trust that talking to someone might help. But it can. I have more than twenty years experience helping individuals, couples, teens and families improve. Using principles and techniques of Energy Psychology, EMDR, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and my own multidimensional approach which takes into account mind, body and spirit, we can create the change you need.

“"Stuck." At some point in our lives, we all feel it. I help people link their desire for things to be different to the places they feel stuck, healthfully and effectively. You don't need to know how to change, we start with where you are. I like the Chinese proverb, "Acceptance and change are brothers, but acceptance is the older brother." By helping you learn to first accept where you are (even if now it seems impossible), suffering is naturally reduced and there is more energy and room for growth. You get to like yourself now AND change.

“I offer a modern engaging style of therapy. My philosophical approach recognizes the struggles and pains we share as humans. Common themes in my work include motivation, choice, isolation-connection, uncertainty, and awe. Our work together is to look with curiosity at what is important to you - your wants and the obstacles that hinder you. Despite the pressures of others and of culture, and the "shoulds" that nag and haunt us, I believe that we move more freely and live more richly when we come to recognize our fears and trust our wants.

Lara Lenington, Psychologist  in Santa Cruz
“The heart of my work is compassion and curiosity. It is my goal to instill these into my clients. I believe each person is innately health seeking. Each of us can find our way off this healthy path for very important and powerful reasons. We work together to understand these reasons with deep compassion. With curiosity we look to discover ways to get back on the path to the healthiest self. I discovered over the past decade that compassion allows us to move on and that with curiosity new choices emerge which can allow for deep, profound and lasting change.

“Life! It's perplexing and mysterious. Challenging and full of unexpected turns. Our fast-paced world presents us with demands that stress our coping abilities and make even the simplest of things seem overwhelming. But life can also be full of contentment and connection. When we acknowledge and explore what is upsetting, we have the potential to expand self-awareness and create a circle of compassion for ourselves and others. This leads to discovering our innate strength and resilience so that we are able to move forward, navigating choices that support the life we want to live.
