ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS!!! I have worked in a variety of settings over my 25 years of practice. These experiences have prepared me to treat a wide variety of issues. My first work experience was in an adolescent treatment center and with children in foster care. I have worked as a psychotherapist treating individuals and families. I have worked closely with the Psychiatry staff and school staff treating children and adolesants with a team approach. I also worked as a school counselor where I became aware of the stresses and issues for both children and educators in the school system.

As a counselor my philosophy is to help clients improve their lives and relationships always treating them with respect and nonjudgmental understanding. I am culturally sensitive and have worked with people of all faiths. I have experience counseling with LGBT clients. I use an eclectic approach based on the needs of the client or family.

I was born in California and have a love of the ocean. I have been married for 41 years and I have 3 grown children and 2 lovely daughters-in-law who are great people of character and launched in great careers. I also have a grandson who is a joy. I enjoy traveling especially to beach destinations.
