About

I am Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in Newport Beach CA and a graduate of Pepperdine University. While my primary treatment approach is psychodynamic psychotherapy, other approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral therapy are used depending on your needs. Ideal clients are adult individuals and couples who are committed to doing the challenging work of therapy. I help clients recognize and use existing problem-solving capabilities and teach new skills as needed.
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 these and other ineffective relationship patterns.
Before becoming a therapist, I worked as a mechanical engineer and technical manager. I often teach logical thinkers about emotions and how relationships work. Women learn how to get men to listen, so that they feel heard. Men learn how to meet women's emotional needs and to understand their own reactions in emotional situations.
