I am a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy. I maintain a private practice in Lafayette, CA.
For over 20 years, I have worked with a wide variety of clients. I often see adolescent girls and work with their families to resolve conflict. I have extended experience in working with men,women and couples to resolve issues of depression, anxiety, sexual trauma, substance abuse, infidelity and life transitions.
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. I am known for being directive, active and focused. My theoretical approach is both cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic, helping you to explore both beliefs and family background. I work to teach you to hold strong, effective boundaries in your relationships. I also include mindfulness training as part of a a healthy recovery. My goal is to provide empathy, compassion and practical feedback to help clients address personal life challenges.
