Welcome

Compassionate, evidence-based therapy

What would your life be like if you had better tools for managing your stress and emotions? What would your relationships be like if you had a deeper awareness of yourself and improved skills for communicating with colleagues and your loved ones? How can you change your mode of operation from just surviving to thriving? 

If your emotions, moods and/or behaviors are causing internal discomfort, difficulties in the workplace, with family, in intimate relationships, or you find yourself coming up short of your full potential, therapy can offer a way to undo unhealthy patterns and unlock new possibilities.

ABOUT

ABOUT ME

EXPERIENCE

I am a board certified and licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (CA license #79788) with an emphasis on adult and adolescent (16+) individuals and couples. I am licensed in California and have been providing support, counseling and coaching to clients since 2008. 

In my 13 years of professional counseling experience I have worked in a variety of settings including 5+ years as Assistant Director of Counseling at a graduate school (medicine, pharmacy, nursing, PA), in an undergraduate counseling center, with Hospice, in a community-based Family Counseling Center and Transitional Age Clinic, and in private practice. ​

 

Before becoming a therapist, I worked in the business/investment field which helps me relate to the special challenges and pressures faced in high-demand fields. 

 

It is my goal as a therapist to assist others in tapping into their personal power, thereby increasing their ability to reach their full potential.
