As a marriage and family therapist licensed in California with 10 years of experience, I've worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, trauma, and life transitions. I have worked with clients who have experienced domestic violence, emotional abuse, and sexual assault.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. A foundational principle in my practice is that everyone is treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, Gestalt and trauma-focused counseling. I tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to work toward a more fulfilling and happier life. The first steps towards a change are often the hardest. If you are ready to take that step, I'm here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

My first therapist didn’t get me at all. I LOVE Kathleen and cannot recommend her highly enough . I’m going through major things here and she GETS me.
At first I was like what am I getting into ?
She is real and will talk to you straight .
