About me

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in the State of California. I have over 24 years of experience working with clients with a varying range of issues including schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, depression, substance abuse, anxiety, bereavement/grief, and relationship issues. I've also helped many individuals who have experienced emotional, physical and sexual abuse, as well as those who are experiencing divorce and family custody issues.

My style of counseling is to be empathic, understanding. and genuine. Respect and compassion are also core to establishing a healthy and trusting relationship. My approach is primarily cognitive behavioral, but I also incorporate psychodynamic, DBT, person-centered and rational emotive treatment. I strongly believe it is imperative to be aware of cultural, LGBTQIA+ and lifestyle differences, and to be sensitive to these issues. I will design our sessions and treatment plan to address these issues as well as your specific goals and needs.

Taking the first step to enhancing and making changes to our lives can be difficult, but it is also a powerful step in seeking a more fulfilling and happier life. I can provide you with the support and guidance you need as you enter the next chapter of your life, and I look forward to working with you.

Worked with Tom for about six months and I am very grateful for his help. I never thought therapy would be for me but I am very happy with all the sessions I had with him.
