About Me

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist currently licensed in both California and Oregon.

I have studied and worked extensively in Cognitive Behavioral theory and take a solution-focused approach to helping individuals identify inaccurate thoughts and assumptions and change destructive patterns of behavior. In a safe and non-judgmental environment, I provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. Integrating complementary methodologies and techniques, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. 

Some of my areas of expertise in working with individuals and couples are; depression, anxiety (CCATP)*, abusive relationships, co-dependency, personal boundaries, self esteem, job performance, anger, separation, communication, intimacy, parenting and affair recovery. I also have extensive experience working with adolescents regarding high risk behavior, family issues, school pressure, and emotional management. I provide a comfortable, safe, structured and caring relationship for your adolescent to explore openly, honestly and without judgment, the struggles and difficulties of growing up in today's society. 

I currently see clients in person in San Ramon and via telemedicine in the Santa Cruz area and Oregon.
