My Role

I am Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in Irvine CA and a graduate of Pepperdine University. While my primary approach to treatment is psychodynamic psychotherapy other approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral therapy can be used depending on your needs. Ideal clients are adult individuals and couples, dedicated to doing the hard work of therapy. I help clients people recognize and use the problem-solving capacities they already have. I also help them heal from emotional pain and to rebuild and/or repair their relationships such as marriage, dating, premarital, family, friendships and relationships with coworkers.

Speciality

I help clients understand why their life doesn't seem to get any better, and why they can keep picking the same type of partner or repeat ineffective behavior. Clients learn how family of origin patterns from childhood can keep repeating and how to change ineffective patterns of relating.

Unique Background

Before becoming a therapist I worked as an engineer. I often teach logical thinkers about emotions and how relationships work. Women learn how to get men to listen so they feel heard. Men learn how to meet women's emotional needs and to understand their own emotions.
