Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“I look forward to helping you through compassion, acceptance, and non-judgmental support. I can help you experience peace, balance and harmony using Art Therapy and /or Internal Family Systems Therapy. Both therapeutic approaches are an effective way to access empowerment, self-confidence, decision making ability, relieve undesirable behavior/thoughts, and it engages both sides of the brain so that you are fully present with your life. It increases awareness of self and others and helps you experience success. I can help you access "parts" of your "Self" and rebuild the way you think about the various aspects of your personality, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“Are you exhausted by your own thoughts? Are your relationships unsatisfying or difficult? Is your child struggling? If so, I can help you.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
“The choice of a therapist is deeply personal, and can be difficult to make from the cursory information on a website. Thus, I offer a reduced-rate introductory session, during which you and I can get to know each other and discuss how our work together can benefit you. I have come to see that talking about problems, while important, is not necessarily enough to solve them. Thus, I provide tools to get at the root of your troubles, techniques to understand and change them, and guidance to help you steer your course to a more joyful and fulfilling life.

“Are you stuck in old patterns of fears, confusion, or indecision? This stuckness and suffering hinders you from experiencing the empowered, expansive, creative, organic self within; this essential you wants to express the unique gift that you are, and the gifts you bring to the world. Imagine beyond your current struggles or the limitations of your past to become who you are truly meant to be, being more authentic, having more fulfilling relationships and manifesting your passions. My commitment to you is to show-up-fully, so you can experience; being understood, felt (your feelings) and seen. You deserve nothing less!

Verified by Psychology Today
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
“I believe that being raised in the mid-west gives my work certain down-to-earth, practical qualities that most of my clients tell me they very much appreciate. I often hear clients say "you seem to get me." Some clients need to hear themselves speak out loud in order to help resolve their issues while others need some objective, impartial reflective insight. Still others benefit from my years of counseling experience and information targeted to help with their particular problems. I offer all of these to my clients and tailor my therapeutic approach to each person's specific needs.

Michael O'Brien, Drug & Alcohol Counselor  in Santa Cruz
Drug & Alcohol Counselor, RAS, FAC, CSC
“Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it destroys your life... You feel pain, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. It's important to understand that addiction changes how your brain functions. It's not just a bad habit. And breaking addiction by yourself is not as simple as it sounds.

“Good therapy experiences are enlivening, collaborative and honest.

Identifying and integrating unconscious beliefs, trauma and self defeating responses can help develop emotional resilience, greater self acceptance and happiness. When we feel truly heard, seen and understood a transformative power ignites and we can risk being different and more open. Hidden in the darkest places can be found the riches treasures such as creativity, passion, purpose and being present.
