CONGRATULATIONS! If you are here on my website and reading this you are already in a select group of people who are actually starting something. Seriously, your being here is huge! Our brains are hardwired to resist change. Don’t believe me? Try moving your toothpaste to a different location, or folding your arms differently from their unconscious norm! Change is unfamiliar and the brain reacts with messages of discomfort. Yet despite this discomfort and the inertia of your habituated life, you chose to no longer ignore the sense that you need a different present, that you want a different future.

Welcome! I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with over 25 years of experience helping individuals and couples successfully transform their lives and relationships. 

I’ve applied my lifelong study of best principles and practices of personal development into high-impact therapy, producing fulfilling and meaningful results. 

Many people do not know that individual therapy and couples therapy require different training expertise. Both require empathy, strong communication skills, and knowledge of how people grow and heal. In addition, couples work is more complex and dynamic. My professional mastery embodies two parallel paths, one supporting individuals and one coaching couples. Regarding individuals, I draw upon extensive training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), CBT, Transactional Analysis, Wonder, the Lefkoe Method, Mindfulness, and teachings from ancient spiritual traditions. Regarding couples, I’ve studied intensively with recognized couples experts, Terry Real of Real Life Therapy and Dr.’s Bader and Pearson of the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy. 

The common thread among these approaches is to produce deep change quickly, empower you as an individual, and reconnect you relationally with both yourself and the people in your life.

So, CONGRATULATIONS! Despite feeling overwhelmed, distressed, or maybe just dissatisfied, you summoned the energy to challenge the comfortable uncomfortable of your life and look for someone to help you!

Are you an intelligent, good person, yet you still don’t feel a sense of purpose or enjoyment from your life?

Are you plagued by low esteem, guilt and shame despite what you achieve?

Are you tired of making changes only to feel like they don’t “stick” and there are rising feelings of exhaustion, depression and anxiety?

Or, maybe you’ve got your life together, but your primary relationship feels stuck, passionless, unnecessarily negative and conflictual.

No matter your circumstances, WELCOME! Please look around the website, at the services offered and at the content on the blog, and if you feel like I may be a good match for the next step in creating a better present and future, contact me and I will schedule a free 15 minute consultation call where we can check in to see what I can offer that will support you in creating your best, meaningful life.
