Having problems with your child, family or marriage? Relationship issues with your significant other? I can help you move through the pain, to a place of understanding and growth. In my view, relationships need regular check-ups just like our bodies. I have been licensed to practice marriage and family therapy since 1996, and have worked with families involved with Child Protective Services; in hospitals where I assessed patients in the ER; for San Diego County as a Children's Mental Health Clinician; and as Director of Family Services for a Native American Tribe. Most recently, as a Clinical Program Manager for a nonprofit.

I work best with couples dealing with relationship issues (communication/infidelity), family conflict, anger management for adults/teens, adolescents who engage in self-harm, trauma (grief and loss), and children with behavior problems at school and home. I also offer parenting education.

I know reaching out for help can be scary and difficult, but the alternative can often be worse. I encourage you to call me to discuss your particular situation before moving forward with an appointment. The best time to reach me during the week is between 8-9pm. I am also available on Saturdays to take your call.

I have known Raymond for many years and he was instrumental as a founding member of Southwest Riverside County Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Raymond took over as President after my tenure, and did an excellent job in helping our chapter grow. Raymond is a kind and helpful therapist and I have no reservations in referring clients to him. I recommend Raymond highly because of his integrity and ethics as a marriage and family therapist.
