My style blends real life experience, knowledge, humor and compassion. My approach includes relational, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral styles, offering a flexible, responsive, non-authoritarian and empathetic quality.
Confidential sessions are available in person or video teleconferencing. I offer counseling for children, adolescents individuals, couples and parents. I'm a member of the CA Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).
