Practice Info
As a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. I draw on a variety of styles and techniques, working with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals. Depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug problems, trauma, PTSD and other painful issues are treatable problems and deserve a focused, personalized approach.

Are you depressed or anxious?
Are you unhappy with your marriage or relationship?
Have you suffered a loss and you are grieving?
Do you worry too much?
Are you concerned about your alcohol or drug use?
Is anger damaging your relationships or career?
Do you lack the social or people skills you need?
Do you suffer from unresolved trauma or abuse?

I have the experience and training to help with these and other problems. As a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC24453), a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and a Nationally Certified Addiction Counselor, I bring more than 20 years of experience helping clients find new hope and workable solutions. Trained and certified in the Harville Hendrix methods of Imago Therapy, I am able to offer focused, positive technique to assist couples in achieving greater intimacy through open communication and increased empathy. Many couples report remarkable improvement when recurrent problems are brought into the open and addressed directly. You probably have questions you would like to discuss before deciding on therapy or a therapist.
