Congratulations on taking the time to explore making a positive change in your life. It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance and I welcome you!

As a psychotherapist and couples counselor, my mission is to help you improve your well being, provide useful problem-solving tools, and enhance your ability to engage in interpersonal relationships. The primary way I accomplish this is by combining traditional therapy with proven wellness methods.

More Counseling Tools Means More Choices

I offer my clients a variety of research-based methods I learned while earning a Ph.D. in Psychology and a Doctorate in Naturopathy. This enabled me to develop considerably more tools than traditional therapists and psychologists in the treatment of mental health and relationship issues.

The psychologist Abraham Maslow said, “If the only tool you have is a hammer, you look at every problem as a nail.” I have devoted my education and therapy training to becoming skilled using as many tools as possible in order to give the people I work with more options for achieving well being. Psychotherapy can be a life-changing event when the right strategies are implemented.

The following are some of the common problems I help with in psychotherapy and counseling:

  • Anxiety
  • OCD
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Addiction
  • Codependency
  • Trauma
  • Abuse
  • Relationship issues
  • Marriage counseling
  • Attention disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Life transitions
  • Grief and loss
  • Personal growth
  • Career challenges
  • Improving communication
  • Increasing assertiveness
  • Self esteem
  • Self confidence

 Counseling That is Light and Creative

I am a highly interactive therapist who who focuses on making therapy light and creative. By letting the organic nature of therapy unfold, we often see the most significant and meaningful changes. Therapy is a place where people can learn how to make their dreams come true while at the same time improving overall mental health.

My work is highlighted by intuition, compassion, and optimism. I make every attempt to be straightforward in a kind way, and encouraging without being pushy. With deep empathy and engagement, I emphasize working as a team with my clients to help them achieve a greater sense of being.

Effective and Caring Counseling and Psychotherapy

My approach to counseling and psychotherapy is warm, heart-centered, and innovative, and is based on evidenced-based therapies that integrate emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of oneself.

I serve as a gentle guide to explore what has purpose and meaning for you to create the life you most deeply want.

Because I know how hard it can be to ask for help, I provide a safe and comfortable therapy environment for you to come in and share what is troubling you. Together, we can develop a plan that works best for you so that you feel happier, more productive, and at peace.

Compassionate and Effective Therapy

I have over 30 years of experience working with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing individual psychotherapy and couples counseling. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help attain the personal growth they’re striving for.

I invite you to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment. If you are searching for new ways to have a fuller and richer life, please call me today (408) 264-3082.
