Please be aware that my psychotherapy practice is currently full, and I do not anticipate any openings any time soon.

I am currently seeing fully vaccinated clients in person in my office.

I am also continue to see some clients on the Doxy video platform who live at a distance or for some other reason are not able to do in-person sessions.

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. When I am able to return, I also 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 reach out if you are in need of support. The Way It Is copy
