I provide individual, couples, and family therapy at my private practice on the Huntington Beach Hospital campus. Much of my work is with clients struggling with anxiety, dysphoria, or depression, or in their relationships with their romantic partners/spouses or their families-of-origin. I find strengths they've forgotten they have that can be used to defeat their problems. I use Narrative and Cognitive-Behavioral therapies and when working with couples I use Emotion Focused Therapy. Research has shown that 70-75% of couples who undergo EFT become closer and more intimate and 90% of them show significant improvements.

My clients seek to go "further faster." Many are eager to perform better in their careers. They may feel they lack focus or feel strongly they are being undervalued and overworked. They also know they are capable of much more. They are typically being paid several thousand less per month than they could be. (I know, I was once there too.) I provide the needed insight, assessment, encouragement and positioning. Sometimes they need counseling to deal with blind spots, sometimes coaching, sometimes a hybrid. Does this sound like you? Let's talk and see if we are the right fit.

I believe that this process is what builds beautiful, strong resilient people. I want to help people on that path. I believe that involves processing past pain, and then using spirituality, nature, movement, art, music and human connections to pursue the values and passions you discovered on your journey.
