About me

I am licensed therapist in California with other 3 decades of successful counseling experience. My focus is on working with individuals and couples helping them get through challenges that get in the way of them living their best life. I am kind, supportive, intentional and caringly challenging in disrupting your unhelpful habits that sabotage your efforts to change your life for the better.

If you find I am a good fit for you, I will commit to three counseling sessions to get you launched in the direction you are wanting to take and then support you with further counseling sessions to stay on course through the inevitable forces that will try to stall your efforts.

The specific focus is on helping you replace unhelpful or problematic habits and patterns of relating to your relational life, sex, anxiety and depression.

I do video chat only. Look for openings in my schedule.

P.S. If you are wanting my services and live outside of California or the United States, I will be your relational and mental health coach. I only work as a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist for people residing in the state of California.
