About

Thank you for exploring my profile. To begin, I am accepting new clients during the quarantine utilizing Zoom videoconferencing, even if you are not currently living in SLO. Licensed for 15 years, my training and experience is specialized towards working with couples and families, as well as adolescent and adult men. I utilize a direct, no-nonsense approach with notable success in treating addictions, family issues, anxiety (generalized, social, panic, etc), depression, trauma, and relationship problems. I am one of the only practitioners in San Luis Obispo County who specializes in working with men and who does family therapy.
I believe that it is incredibly difficult to resolve issues without understanding them first. How are you supposed to get back on the road of your life if you don’t fully understand why the car keeps breaking down?
I invite you to come “pop the hood” with me. Let’s learn how engines work and how to fix them. Then we can get to the work of replacing gaskets, timing belts, and changing the oil.
