Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Marriage Counseling
Practice Description: Are you feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed? Maybe you you're concerned about the direction your relationship is headed. When you just know that it's finally time to talk with a professional, I provide a caring and safe setting where we can talk about what are feeling, take a look at what's going on, and consider possible solutions that can result in lasting change.

Since 1987 I have been privileged to provide counseling and therapy services to individuals, couples and families in North San Diego County. When you come to the office, you will feel cared for and respected as we work together to get a clear picture of what has been happening.

Working together, we will develop an understanding of the challenges and obstacles that have been resulting in the emotional pain in your life. Everyone hopes to have clearer communication, stronger boundaries, increased self-esteem and healthier relationships. Our work together will focus on enhancing these strengths, with the goal of developing a rich and rewarding life.

The impact of addictions and alcoholism is inestimable, frequently tearing at the very fabric of a family. For over three decades, helping individuals, couples and families deal with addiction and codependency has been a cornerstone of my practice. Our current opiate epidemic and various internet addictions has made this an even more important aspect of my practice.

Privacy and confidentiality are always critical in psychotherapy. However, when addiction is involved it is so important to know that you can talk in a setting where what is said privileged, just like with your attorney. The shame of having so many thing go wrong can feel overwhelming - it can be difficult to figure out where to start. This is the place! Regardless of whether you are a family member or the person struggling with how much you are using - old timer or just beginning to have some problems. Give me a call and let's talk for a few minutes. You can get help and find solutions. Family members frequently find amazing relief for themselves finally talking about their resentment and loneliness. Help is available.
