I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist with a private practice in Newport Beach, CA. I typically see Individuals (men & women), Couples, Groups, Adults & Adolescents (11+). With over 10 years of experience (intern & licensed combined), my specialties include: Grief, Loss, Trauma/Crisis Intervention, Depression, Anxiety, Life Transitions, Stress and Relationship Issues. I am conveniently located near the John Wayne Airport and work in a lovely office with parking. I also provide Encrypted Email, meaning all interactions we have on line are completely secure and confidential.

As a Marriage Family Therapist I know how important it is to find a therapist you can trust. Finding a therapist or counselor isn't always easy.  I use practical feedback and focus on the strengths of my clients to help them reach their goals. I believe that with honesty, compassion and understanding, we can all find healing and have a more fulfilling life.

Going through a major life change can feel overwhelming, even if it is a positive change like a new career. You might notice your energy level decreases, you might have difficulty focusing, or you could have a lack of interest in things that used to be exciting to you. It doesn't have to be hopeless. Counseling can give you an opportunity to grow and learn new ways of coping with transition or loss. I have always had a passion for helping people and feel I am good at what I do. I can help you to find more joy and happiness in your life.
