About

Learn to respond to life's challenges in a more productive way. Improve your relationships, increase your energy, decrease anxiety & reduce depression. Are you currently going through an unsettling time? You can still emotionally grow. Are you in a relationship that feels stuck, or toxic? You can still emotionally grow. Challenge your old habits & harmful negative thinking- Let go of old tapes saying, I'm not good enough, or that if my partner (job, etc..) was better, than I would be better; or that I'm too old to try (blank). You can feel more in control and capable of creating the life you envision.
I have a Masters in Marriage/Family Therapy & I am a lic. Ct Counselor. I have a Psych undergrad degree from U.C San Diego; and a M.A/Marriage/Family from Pepperdine Univ. (L.A, Ca). I have 10 (+) years in providing individual & couple's counseling & I was previously in the computer industry. I believe in people's resiliency & ability to strive for better.
Despite our circumstances, despite our past, we can discover & unveil & become our best selves- Questions to Ponder: How do you want to live the rest of your life? What's important to you? What's working for you now? What's getting in your way? Are you afraid to try? Or afraid to fail? Contact me to schedule a no-cost consultation and I will listen.
