About me

I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 23 years of experience, proudly serving the diverse state of California. Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of working in various settings, from private practice to community mental health agencies, outpatient, and inpatient facilities.
My passion lies in helping individuals, couples, and families navigate life's challenges. Whether it's anxiety, mood disorders, attention issues, or matters related to family dynamics, relationships, or LGBTQ+ concerns, I'm here to provide the support and guidance you need.
I have a specialized focus on treating panic disorder and OCD. These conditions can be particularly challenging, and I have dedicated myself to developing effective strategies for addressing them.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in warmth, compassion, and respect. I believe in the power of mindfulness and draw from cognitive-behavioral, existential, and psychodynamic therapy techniques. Together, we'll explore your unique journey and work towards finding the answers that are already within you. I view therapy as a collaborative process, where my role is to facilitate your self-discovery and growth.
I treat every client with unwavering respect, dignity, and sensitivity. Your unique experiences and perspectives are valued in our therapeutic relationship, and I am committed to creating a safe, inclusive space where you can explore, heal, and thrive.
I look forward to joining you on this transformative journey of self-discovery and empowerment. Together, we can unlock your potential and pave the way to a more fulfilling and happier life.

Caring, good listener, thought provoking questions, and excellent interpretation of my thoughts and feelings.

Michael is equally attentive and insightful. He's been a great support for me on my journey to better understanding myself!
