I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT 20355) in the state of California, I have been working as a psychotherapist with individuals and couples for thirty years. Your decision to enter psychotherapy as an individual or as a couple is an important one, and I hope that my web site will assist you in that decision.

Why Seek Therapy or Education?

Most couples and individuals seek psychotherapy because they experience some degree of psychological pain. As the great motivator, pain is a universal experience. The desire to alleviate it has created and inspired psychotherapists, philosophers, poets, scientists, religious seekers and ordinary women and men since the human story began.

What is Healing?

As human beings we can hurt, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. In fact the original meaning of psychotherapy involves two words which when put together in Greek mean "healing of the soul." For modern humans, anxiety, depression, relational losses and conflicts comprise a great deal of the suffering we experience. It is no wonder we dedicate so many resources to the healing of these experiences. Here is a positive way to view all of this:

We Desire to Feel Alive & Creative

When we really look beneath personal, social, and relational distress, we will almost always find a positive desire, an important need, or a creative urge that is currently or chronically blocked. Many people try hard to navigate these painful places, some with great success. Others seem to lack a map or the internal momentum to enter the current and navigate life experiences.

Safety and Empathy

We desire to heal and grow. In my practice, it is a priority to offer you practical skills to enhance the navigation of your life in a setting dedicated to creating safety and emotional empathy for you as an individual or as a couple. I specialize in relationships, so whether you are in a marriage or partnership, or single and seeking, or divorced and healing, you will find a place to explore where you are right now and where you want to be.
