Hello, I'm glad you found my website! Since you are visiting this website, it may be that you are thinking of starting therapy. Seeking therapy is a courageous, proactive choice to take charge and improve your life. Today you have chosen to embark on a positive path to growth and well-being. Often times the first step toward change is the hardest. I offer you assistance and support through this process.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and families to improve relationships and personal well-being. My goal is to help you experience a more fulfilling and meaningful life. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand negative patterns and resolve current challenges in your life. I provide a supportive and nonjudgmental therapeutic environment in which you will be an active participant in gaining self-awareness and implementing new behaviors that will lead to positive change. I am committed to helping you reach your goals and in doing so utilize empirically based and proven research methods. With empathy, compassion and understanding, I help you build on build on your strengths, alleviate distress, and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.
If you're looking for support and guidance through a difficult situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you.
My practice is open and accepting of people with diverse backgrounds, lifestyles, and ages. I specialize in working with military couples/ families, relationship/ couples counseling, young adult/ adolescent issues, and mood disorders.
I currently offer day and evening appointments Monday through Friday, as well as Saturdays by appointment only. I have two offices; one in San Diego and and one in San Marcos. Additionally I'm available for online therapy or phone/ skype sessions. Please call or email me for a FREE initial phone consultation today.
