About

Do you feel life is restricting you from who you really want to be for yourself, your partner and/or your family? My primary goal in therapy is to help enhance your ability to make choices. I use personalized approaches to help empower your bravery to look inside yourself. The authenticity of these choices will lead to serving you and your relationships in the best ways possible. Assessing our sometimes, self-imposed, "roadblocks" in life can help us build accountability for our choices. This, in turn, allows these choices to become "building blocks" toward lasting joy for each relationship creation of your choice.
My philosophy derives from an Attachment model to join my client's journey. I have training in Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples & individuals. I also use mindfulness, play, systems, somatic, and Cognitive Behavioral therapies. I offer therapy for teens and adults for depression, anxiety, grief, loss, parenting issues, and life transitions.
My niche is in helping individuals, couples and families both inside and outside my own faith-based religious practice. I also offer private, confidential, video counseling (telehealth) services for those who reside in California. I invite you to discover your own potential by choosing to embrace purpose, authenticity, accountability and gratitude. Welcome!
