Licensed in: California

With over two decades of experience, I’ve dedicated myself to supporting individuals and families across Southern California, spanning various settings from community-based agencies to hospitals.

About Me

My practice embraces diversity, serving teens and adults and addressing parenting challenges, including those within blended and military families. Specializing in relationship repair, effective communication, conflict resolution, and fostering emotional connection, I help couples and families navigate challenges and strengthen bonds. My ultimate goal is to facilitate your journey toward improved well-being and a more fulfilling life. Recognizing the uniqueness of each client, couple, or family, I tailor therapy to individual needs, drawing from a range of therapeutic modalities to identify and leverage strengths in a non-judgmental environment. Let’s work together to find you a sense of peace, control, and personal fulfillment.
