I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist . I operate from a culture informed approach serving individual adults from different socio-economic background, religion, and sexual and gender orientation. When we become stressed by a particular challenge and/or emotional pain that may build up and overwhelm us, we might find ourselves disconnected from our partner, children and selves, feeling empty and alone. I implement strength-based and solution-focused approaches to healing while offering a warm, compassionate and collaborative space in meeting these challenges with clients.

I had a two career family then a time staying home raising children.
I work mostly in couple therapy because I believe in the power of romantic connection to bring happiness, fulfillment, and comfort to life. If you are not getting along with your partner, you may be frustrated, lonely, angry, or sad. I can help you find the friendship and love you once had. I offer premarital counseling and remarriage counseling to help you realize the dreams you have of your life together. If you are still looking for a special someone, I can help you remove the roadblocks that may stand in your way.

I grew up in the state of Michigan and moved to California in the 60s. I decided to become a therapist in my 20's and received my B.A. in Psychology. However, I was single, working in the airline industry, and was enjoying the travel and postings in other countries. I lived and worked in Japan for 2 years and in Singapore for 2 years. I finally decided to pursue my lifelong interest and obtained my Masters's degree in Clinical Psychology and my license as a Marriage and Family Therapist in California.

I have a strong appreciation for diversity and have found that each individual or family has unique gifts and unique needs.
Sometimes life presents us with difficult, painful, or even seemingly unbearable challenges. Sometimes we, ourselves, can be a source of the pain and challenges. Either way, we must be able to access our resources -- inner and outer -- to cope with the pain, the imbalance, the overwhelm, the stuckness ... and, ultimately, to learn, heal, and grow from our experiences..... My job is to help you best utilize resources you already have and to offer you more tools to help you change undesirable patterns in yourself and your life.

I am also a RN, and Family Nurse Practitioner and I bring medical expertise into my psychotherapy practice.
Often a person will seek out counseling when personal attempts to solve a problem have not worked. Therapy is a safe and supportive environment in which to explore very personal concerns - concerns that may be difficult to share even with those closest to you. As a Marriage and Family Therapist , I can provide a different kind of support than family and friends; I will listen objectively, not be judgmental, and help you to find your own solutions. My role is to help you feel better and to assist you to acheive your own personal goals.

I have been in private practice for more than thirty years and work with individual personal growth, couple and family difficulties.
I had the great privilege of training with Virginia Satir, a pioneer in a Systems approach to therapy. This approach examines how early learning in the family -of-origin, affects present day behavior. The many concepts she shared about people, how we can change and grow, have have been influential to me personally and inform my work. My wish is to share with others how to better communicate, improve relationships with self and others and, not only better cope with life challenges, but thrive. I join with clients to create a safe atmosphere where people can risk and grow.

Learn to have fun again as you restore inner peace and family harmony.
Do you often feel isolated or overwhelmed? Do you constantly feel hurried? Our lives can present us with situations that cause us to question everything we thought we knew. Sometimes painful issues from your past like sexual abuse or other painful childhood experiences resurface. During these times, it can feel hopeless: causing anxiety or depression. Balancing these concerns among our busy lives causes stress and affect relationships with partners and children. Sometimes disagreements about how to parent also adds extra strain. You are not alone.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
