As a solution and relational focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

||Scheduling of sessions can be quite flexible, with consideration of the patient's travel, work and other circumstances. Once an in-person therapeutic relationship has been established with a California resident, sessions can be conducted by phone or Skype. In certain circumstances, telephone and/or Skype sessions have proven to be an effective way to maintain the continuity of psychotherapy.
