About Me

I firmly believe that asking for help is a sign of strength. 

We all have our strengths, and limitations, and when we are faced with more than we can handle, it is healthy and appropriate to ask for extra support. 

I offer my clients a warm, empathetic, non-judgmental and safe environment to work on identified areas of need.  These may include: family conflict, relationship challenges, adolescent and child issues, parenting issues, depression and anxiety, stress and anger management, and other treatment needs.  You don’t have to face these challenges on your own.  I am here to help!

I have over 20 years of experience working with families, children/adolescents, often in crisis situations.  I provide intensive cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused treatment, family systems therapy, and group treatment.  I can provide you with:

  • Education on age appropriate behavior;
  • Identification of disorders;
  • Facilitation of communication of difficult issues; and
  • Teach skills for more effective ways of coping and relating to each other. 

If you are ready to heal from within and live a more fulfilling and healthy life, call me at (916) 915-3275.
