I’m a marriage and family therapist practicing in California for over 30 years. I also provide coaching to families and parents as I see this as an effective way to move through the challenges families face today. I aspire to help parents feel confident and empowered as they become the agent for positive change in their family. I have stayed current as the times have changed and am aware of the ever-changing struggles the next generations are facing. The foundation of my work is to help individuals and families overcome the impact of multigenerational and sociological patterns of violence and addiction.
My approach is heart centered and strength based with a firm belief that when one or all feels heard, supported, and believed in, a safe environment is created that leads to working collaboratively to build confidence and hope to create goals and achieve them.
