Most likely, you're wondering how I can help you. I've been practicing for over 30 years and specialize in: 1) marital and sex therapy (for example, erectile problems, painful intercourse, lack of sexual desire and am certified in sex therapy by the American Association of Sexual Educators, Counselors, and Therapists),- I'm always focused on increasing pleasure in your relationship; 2)reducing your depression, and 3) minimizing your compulsive eating (including weight and exercise management.). When we work together, I try to highlight your strengths so that you can take charge of your life and "fix" your problems.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist with an MA in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in marriage and family therapy from Pepperdine University.
The relationship between the therapist and client is one of the most integral factors in therapy. I offer my clients a relationship that is based on empathetic attunement, honesty, and acceptance. While my approach is informed by psychodynamic thinking, I recognize that each individual, couple, and family is unique and there is no “one size fits all” solution to healing.

Many times these symptoms are a result of difficult relationships both personal and professional, life changes resulting from job and career issues, marriage , divorce, birth, death, adult child estrangement and caring for the elderly.
For over 25 years I have helped individuals and couples resolve their problems resulting in leading more satisfying lives. As a certified psychotherapist/psychoanalyst , with a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology my treatment approach is psychodynamic. My ideal patient is one who desires a change in their own lives as well as how they relate to others. Often as a result of therapy I have seen individuals internalize their treatment by remembering what was said. Many leave with a sense of mastery and accomplishment in coping with adversity. As a member of psychotherapy and psychoanalytical institutes I train others in the field.

My practice is informed by training in many different modalities including Object Relations and Relational psychodynamic thinking, Marriage and Family Systems Theory, and Kinetic Awareness.
People enter therapy looking for results and relief. I like to identify issues quickly and focus on alleviating distress. In addition to couples counseling and general practice with individuals, I run support groups for adoptive parents. Parenting is a challenge. Adoptive parenting has additional challenges. My groups offer a safe space to explore issues and receive support. I take great pleasure in engaging people and offering an environment that allows people to arrive at unique solutions to their lives. I work with individuals, couples and groups.

Marriage Counseling Therapists

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by teaching couples concrete skills to communicate with one another and solve disagreements in healthy ways. A trained mental health professional works with both members of a couple to explore difficulties the couple may be having and helps them develop skills to address these matters. Couples who don’t have any difficulties but want to prepare for marriage may develop skills for the future.

How long does marriage counseling typically last?

Marriage counseling is a short-term form of therapy; the process may last between four and eight sessions. Other forms of relationship guidance from mental health professionals, such as couples therapy, are longer lasting, may focus on the past rather than just the present, and are tailored to the individual couple and their emotions, history, and patterns in the relationship. Couples therapy often lasts for 12 weeks or longer.

Is marriage counseling effective?

Marriage counseling helps many couples develop relationship skills that may not have been acquired or tested in a relationship; partners may be better able to communicate and address conflict following counseling. However, there are many different forms of marriage counseling, and this form of counseling does not have as strong an evidence base as other modalities such as couples therapy.

Is marriage counseling effective if only one partner wants to go?

Yes, marriage counseling can still be effective if one partner convinces the other to engage in the process. Of course, whether counseling is effective depends on the couple’s commitment to work on their relationship; however, the short-term, skills-based nature of marriage counseling makes it a relatively easy “ask” of a partner, and the hesitant individual may see its value once counseling begins.
