Can you imagine your confusion and emotional pain being transformed into clarity and wisdom? I offer compassionate understanding and support in a safe, comfortable environment. By incorporating body, mind and spirit in a practical approach to growth and change, I have successfully helped many individuals and couples find relief from anxiety and depression and to improve their relationships. As we learn to see things without distortions and judgements, anger can be transformed into compassion, and fear dissolves into acceptance, thus, allowing us to be fully present and alive to celebrate our lives with joy and happiness.

Relationships are opportunities for growth, self-knowledge and fulfillment. As a seasoned relationship counselor, I've helped many couples improve communication, resonance, intimacy, and resolve differences. I bring to my work years of meditation and utilize Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, blending CBT, Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Family Systems theories, with mindfulness.

I am associated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) as a Mental Heath Practitioner Educator, and as a California State Trainer for NAMI Support Group Facilitators.
