"I am a licensed Psychologist and a Marriage Family Therapist in California, with more than 35 years of experience. I specialize in Depth Psychology and practice a Jungian approach. Mind, body, and spirit all work together to form an integrated person. I work with children, adolescents, transition-age youths, adults, and families. My experience has taught me that it's not "what's wrong" with you but "what has happened" to you that is important and the type of therapy I practice is not "problem centered", but "solution centered." I help individuals, couples, and families achieve their peak performance."
