My practice specializes in high-conflict matters including the treatment of high-risk behaviors, and high-conflict family problems within and outside of the family and criminal court systems. Recognizing the dynamic needs of high-risk cases, I keep relevant on the research as well as continuing education to ensure competence in my areas of practice. The process of reunification and co-parenting is complex and therefore, I do not bill insurance for these services. I offer these services in-person in CA, but also strive to reunify families from Nevada and Oregon as I am licensed in all three states; telehealth is used in most cases.

Specialty trainings include EMDR and FLASH, which address deeply rooted trauma(s), complex trauma(s), or single incident trauma(s), and I utilize EFT for couples whether married, considering marriage, or those simply wanting to work on an existing relationship whether romantic, family , or friend.
Please see accepted insurance below: I am EMDR and EFT trained and utilized these evidenced-based modalities when it comes to trauma and/or relationships. Depending on your need, I can be direct, incorporate humor and normalcy to your unique experience, or sit with you in silence until you are ready to move. This rings true in our personal relationships and understanding of self.

As a Certified Brain spotting Licensed Marriage and Family therapist, with 15 years in the mental health field, I use Brain spotting and mindfulness modalities to compassionately collaborate with individuals.
Fear, reactivity, anxiety, intense triggers, sadness, relationship challenges can be a result of negative experiences and trauma which make it difficult to have meaningful relationships and achieve goals. Brain Spotting works within the deep brain and body through its direct access to your autonomic and limbic systems within the body's central nervous system to identify, process and release core sources of emotional/body pain to provide relief from symptoms caused by negative experiences and trauma.

Therapy should be viewed as a safe space to explore, discover your truth, and better understand your basic needs. Our greatest gift to ourselves is unlearning the negative patterns we’ve been taught and reestablishing healthier patterns. We can’t change our past experiences or forget them; however, we can learn to make peace through acceptance. As a culturally humble therapist, my goal is to support you on your journey of discovery. I have a specialty and training in working with couples, family relational issues, autism spectrum disorders, and trauma-informed care.

I offer individual sessions, couples counseling, family counseling, substance abuse evaluations for family and legal courts, and intervention services.
Have you or a loved one struggled with alcohol or drug dependency? Allow me to help you on your journey to recovery. At Life Steps Consulting, we know that life is full of different transitions, which can be broken down into a series of steps. When you are struggling with substance abuse, movement through the transitional steps halts, causing you to fall into unhealthy life cycles, which impact your career goals, relationships, physical and mental health. I can help you get back on track. I not only have studied the disease of alcohol and drug addiction, but I have been there and I know how you feel.

Over the last two decades my clientele has changed along with my experience, skill acquisition and personal life. First as a clinician, then business owner, family man and student of life and living, I have been fortunate to have a career that reflects my own life. Peek moments, so many blessings, long trials and struggles and big losses have rounded the edges of once sharp ideals and brought a humble gratitude for the souls I've met in my office. While I have a solid grasp of several powerful treatment modalities, my goal first is to be a good human to those who seek me out.

The thing about life is that sometimes it can feel like right when everything is going well, something pops up. A current stressor, a blast from the past, or self-sabotage can find a way to rob us of the joy we so deeply desire. I have EMDRIA training in EMDR to help people process the ways they've been hurt in the past by a family member, a friend, a colleague, or a terrible accident or event. EMDR is highly renowned for its efficacy in healing trauma and helping attachment wounds from childhood. Once these get desensitized we're no longer the slave to our old triggers, and we can then move forward in freedom & joy.

Everyone needs and deserves health in all forms. I believe therapy is no different than medical treatment or dental care. People often don't want to pursue therapy because they don't think their discomfort is enough to warrant the expense. Whether the sessions are many or few, therapy can make a big difference in how you feel about yourself and how you relate to others. Emotional health is an investment in your quality of life. I utilize interventions based on individualized needs to help people reach their goals and create a fulfilling life.
