Pacifica Graduate Institute/MA in Counseling Psychology with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology
Not taking new clients for sessions, but spots are available in groups!
What’s therapy with me like? I focus most on self-esteem, relationship issues, and grief, using Psychodynamic, Modern Analytic, and Depth Psychotherapy modalities.
Psychodynamic depth oriented therapies allow clients to uncover and understand unconscious processes, which affect present behavior. Raising self-awareness and understanding the influence of the past on the present can motivate and empower us to grow and change for the better.
How do you keep learning? I have attended the American Group Psychotherapy Association; Somatic Experiencing Training: Beginning I, Level I and the Marin Institute for Projective Dreamwork Certification.
Who do I work with? I work with all ages, as well as couples, and groups.
My impacting identities are…I am a cis-gender, heterosexual, white woman who acknowledges my privilege and works to create a safe space for all.
I feel allied/aware/part of/informed/knowledgeable about…Feminist oriented therapy (practicing), multi-culturally competent counseling (practicing), and the LQBTQ+ population (allied).
I am the best fit for a client who…is interested in deep, insight oriented therapy.
I am not the best fit for a client who…is not interested in deep explorations of the psyche.
What makes me unique? My therapeutic style involves creating a safe space to explore one’s deepest self.
The Practical Stuff
What insurances do I accept? I am in network with Carefirst BCBS.
