PSYCHOTHERAPY and CONSULTATION : Adults and Professionals

Hello, and thank you for visiting my profile.
I provide Psychotherapy and Consultation Services for adults and professionals.

HEALING, GROWTH, CLARITY, and CONFIDENCE are the 4 pillars of my practice. They are the purpose of my work with each one of my clients.

• Effects of trauma
• Painful memories
• Feeling “stuck”
• Emotional and cognitive roadblocks
• Difficult adjustment in midlife, post-menopause, and elder years
• Giftedness: Unique social-emotional needs, risks, and diagnostic challenges
• Deepening a sense of Self
• Intuition development
• High sensitivity
• Decision Making

MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment) Screening: a brief, preliminary assessment to determine whether or not a comprehensive neurocognitive evaluation by a specialist is currently recommended.

TREATMENT • How I Work with My Clients:
EMDR, Mindfulness practices, Cognitive-Behavioral, Imagery and symbols, and Writing to Heal program. I am grounded in current research in the neurobiology of the effects of trauma and brain-body-spirit dynamics. I use a variety of visual aids to enhance my clients' experiences and understanding.

In connection with my focus on midlife and beyond, I wrote the book Midlife Check-in: Who Am I Really? A Guide to Deepening Your Sense of Self in Midlife and Beyond. • “The Midlife Checklist©” is a research-based, 50-item self-assessment for women and men that identifies one’s current psychological phase(s) and core influencers. I published it with my book, which is available online and at my office.

In recent years, I have taught many classes and made presentations about Midlife, Post-Menopause, and Aging Well to senior centers and communities, professional organizations, private groups, and the Women’s Wellspring Mini Medical School.

I earned my graduate degrees at Stanford; UC, Berkeley; and Chapman Universities. In 2001, after 30+ years in Education, Management Consulting, Qualitative Evaluation, and Leadership Development, I answered my "call" to become a mental health professional. I absolutely love this work that I do!
