I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues that span from  therapy for depression, anxiety, addictions, grief counseling, parenting support, couples counseling and beyond.  I have specialized training with adolescents and adults who are struggling with their mood, self-esteem, relationships, stress and addiction related issues.  In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to the individual needs of each of my clients to help them attain the personal growth they’re striving for.

Utilizing a collaborative and compassionate approach, I will work together with the individual client, couple or family in identifying the goals for therapy.  This collaboration includes addressing and resolving problems in a planned and solution focused fashion to restore hope.  A client’s individual strengths are explored, identified and utilized to achieve healing.  I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in San Diego, California with offices in Mission Valley and Rancho Bernardo, and if you, your loved one or family member needs help — please consider my compassionate counseling.
