General Mission Statement
My passion is in helping people who are feeling depressed, anxious, overwhelmed or discouraged by a particular problem or relationship, or who simply want help living a more satisfying life. I offer tools so that people can feel better, function well, and fine peace, hope and empowerment even in the midst of life’s challenging circumstances.
I began my career as a mental health professional in England, where I am from, and resumed it after the birth of my three children here in the United States starting in 1990. I have worked in a variety of settings, including local government and private non-profit social service agencies, hospitals and schools. I obtained my California State License in 2004 and have been in private practice here in the Bay Area since 2003. In addition, I have also supervised trainee and intern therapists who are working towards licensure.
In 2005, while an intern at Christian Counseling Center San Jose, I began training to become an EMDR therapist. Before long, EMDR became my passion as I observed the amazing breakthroughs my clients were getting in their healing journeys as well as the fact that this method typically works faster and more thoroughly than what I call ‘regular talk therapy’. I have continued to use EMDR with the majority of my clients ever since with consistently excellent results.
Another great passion of mine is working with people who share my faith or are open to learning about how Biblical principles can be applied to our lives because of the incredible difference this has made in my own life as well as countless others I have either known personally or had the privilege to work with. This is strictly optional, however, so if you feel this is not for you, just let me know and we will focus on the areas you select. I am committed to helping you work in ways and at a pace you feel comfortable with and in achieving the goals that you set for yourself.
To learn more about how the different counseling and psychotherapy services I provide can help your family and you, I encourage you to contact me today, while you’re thinking about it, and schedule a free initial consultation.
