Parkford Counseling Associates
My private practice has expanded to include a second office with skilled therapy associates working under my supervision in either of our two locations on Mission Street, Santa Barbara. These registered associates are working in private practice as they finish up their hours towards licensure, and come highly recommended. They have similar training and specialties as myself, along with a consistent therapeutic approach. These associates provide a sliding scale for therapy fees. You may call our general office phone number (805) 687-1674, or reach out to any of them directly.
My approach to therapy is creative, collaborative, and down to earth. I hold space for clients to feel safe and heard, while providing them with tools to create change in their lives. I approach therapy from a person-centered lens that works to promote self-efficacy, a stronger sense of identity, authenticity, and empowerment.
I offer a special focus of working with teens and young adults. I completed my training at CALM and the Santa Barbara School District, where I gained fluency in working with adolescents who have experienced complex trauma. After years of working with this age group, I’ve developed an affinity for supporting individuals as they transition from adolescence to adulthood.
My clinical experience includes working with depression, anxiety, non-suicidal self-injury, family conflict, peer relationships, self-esteem, body image issues, PTSD, developmental issues, identity exploration, multiculturalism, and emerging adulthood.

I approach clients from a place of authenticity, compassionate honesty, and partnership. My goal is to provide an affirming, emotionally safe environment for clients to explore their inner work. Through this inner work, clients may bring awareness to shifts they’d like to make in their outer world that would lead to more wholeness and fulfillment in their lives.
I have experience working with adults and couples through life transitions, parenting, attachment, and communication.
I have a particular interest in working with adult men on issues of childhood trauma, intimacy, infidelity, and partner communication.
I've received training in RLT (Relational Life Therapy with Terry Real) for working with couples; mindfulness techniques, and attachment-based and psychodynamic modalities. I incorporate art therapy and somatic practices into my therapy sessions when appropriate. I interact with my clients from a trauma-informed, client-centered perspective.
