Practice Description: I focus on brief, solution focused therapy, therapy that works! I know that most people don't have the time or money to invest in years of therapy and getting nowhere. I combine Therapy and Life Coaching to build a treatment plan that addresses all your needs. Through therapy I can help you uncover and recover from what may be holding you back. With Coaching I help you use what you've learned to discover a more fulfilled and happier life...the life you deserve.
Therapy and the needs of people that present for therapy have changed and you need a therapist that understands the unique demands and challenges of today's world.

I provide compassionate and effective psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families in a supportive, safe and goal oriented environment. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, marriage problems related to infidelity, finances, internet addiction or parenting issues I can help. I can help you navigate through the difficult times in your life and teach you the tools necessary to help you achieve a healthier and happier you.

I understand the factors that create stress on an individual, couple or family…especially living in Orange County. If you feel unhappy with where your life has taken you, feeling like you have ignored your own needs and lived for other people’s needs, purposes and goals or you look like you have it all on the outside but feel alone and unhappy on the inside therapy can help.

Additional Comments: In addition to my traditional office setting I also provide a unique type of therapy combining walking and counseling called "Trail Therapy". I am the only therapist in Orange County to offer this unique approach to mental health. People struggling with depression, anxiety, and/or stress, postpartum depression or baby blues can all benefit from this type of therapy.

The outdoors and physical activity allow you the opportunity to process your thought's without interruption....a means of "de-cluttering" your mind. Research has shown how beneficial physical activity is to your overall mental health.

During trail therapy we meet at a designated time and place at one of several trails and beaches throughout the Irvine and Newport Beach areas. We will walk at a comfortable pace set by you for the duration of 1-1.5 hours while discussing the challenges and concerns you are facing.
