I have many years' experience working with people going through life transitions like divorce, remarriage, launching children.
Life offers us many obstacles along the way and it is my practice to walk with my clients through dark days and confusing times to support new growth and balance in their lives. Over 30 years of practice has shown me that it takes tremendous courage to seek therapy and embark on the journey towards clarity and solid ground. I believe that therapy is a partnership between us built on a trusting relationship where we will explore both past and present life experience. I hope you will find my approach to this work supportive and empowering.

Divorce has become a new phenomenon in our culture.
At any age, there are developmental, transitional and often unexpected circumstances that challenge us in life. Be it aspects of parenting, the social or emotional challenges of being a child or teenager, or concerns about life transitions as an adult, my approach is safe and comfortable. I work from a place of patience, sincerity, humor and nonjudgement. I want the counseling experience for my clients to feel helpful, worthwhile and to be a journey to better understanding and personal growth.

I receive repeated feedback regarding clients' appreciation of my nonjudgemental support and guidance, my ability to understand the great shame people feel about their relationships and lives. I have a knack for forming trusting relationships with teens, allowing them to experience open communication, which, over time, tends to replicate itself within the family system.

Divorce Therapists
The dissolution of a marriage is almost always an upsetting event, at the very least marked by disappointment and the loss of dreams and expectations.

A divorce therapist in Walnut Creek can help you by exploring the struggles you’re facing, identifying whether or not those problems can be resolved, creating a realistic picture of what life would look like after divorce, and how your children could be affected and protected. In the process of answering these questions, a divorce therapist helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness.
