Hello~ I am a LMFT working in California with over 20 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and coach. I have experience working with individuals, couples, families, groups, and adolescents to improve the quality of their lives and relationships. We humans are hard-wired for connection. Sometimes, those connections can be difficult due to our own past experiences and the emotional bruises that come with them. Psychotherapy is used to help improve well-being and mental health, as well as change troublesome thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors in order to improve relationships and social interaction. My approach to therapy is collaborative, strength based, and experiential. I work to help my clients work towards their goals by using internal wisdom and life experience to build on the existing resources in order to help find a more satisfying life and connections with others. I specialize in managing life transitions (including divorce), addiction counseling, parenting support, navigating grief and loss, dependency/co-dependency, LGBTQQI issues, marital/pre-marital/family issues, BDSM and poly relationship issues, PTSD/trauma, and sex therapy.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here and ready to support and empower you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
