I am licensed in California with 28 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, & motivation, self-esteem, and confidence.
I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. This will include helping you develop strategies and skills which you can implement throughout your life. It takes courage to seek a path towards wellness and to take the first steps towards understanding and healing oneself. I am here to walk with you on what will be an empowering journey.
With couples I provide practical tools and strategies to improve communication, resolve conflicts, and rebuild trust and walk with both of you to take proactive steps towards a stronger resilient relationship. Couples seeking clarity discover unspoken concerns and issues stemming from navigating major life transitions. This joint path towards rediscovering shared values and the joy that brought you together.
Where I have unique insight and expertise are with individuals and families experiencing emotional challenges in caring for an adult loved one with cognitive impairments, i.e., dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease. Also, I experience success with my clients in bridging interpersonal and cross generational concerns of persons and their families from diverse cultures, in addressing challenges of acculturation, assimilation, and acceptance of persons struggling with gaining a sense of community.
Lastly, if you are a parent and there are concerns about relating to you children, of any age, I can address these challenges with you also from a developmental and experiential perspective.
I congratulate you on your decision to seek out help and wish you success on this fulfilling journey.
