In these Covid-19, sheltering-in-place times, I am available for video or phone psychotherapy sessions. Please reach out if you are in need of support. 

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with a private practice in Petaluma. I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I offer complimentary, 15-minute phone consultations to discuss your needs and how I might best be able to work with you. My previous work includes many decades as a hospice social worker, most of them at Hospice of Petaluma. This end-of-life work  has deeply informed me about living life with intention and clarity. I also currently volunteer for the Insight Prison Project at San Quentin State Prison where I co-facilitate a Restorative Justice group for incarcerated men serving life in prison.

Additionally, I am a life-long memoirist and solo performance artist. I have performed several one-woman shows over the last several years and continue to perform around the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

I am also an amateur photographer and great lover of poetry; and I recently completed and published a collection of  favorite poetry along with original photographs from my world travels. Additionally, I am a choral singer and sing with the Joyful Noise Gospel Singers in Sebastopol and the Oakland Interfaith Community Choir.

Please be in touch if you would like to make an appointment for psychotherapy and/or want to be put on my Mailing List for upcoming performances and speaking engagements.
