LMFT

I offer psychotherapy and coaching for individuals and couples.  My approach is collaborative, warm, and very interactive, lending itself easily to both short term goal oriented work and long term depth exploration.  I believe that therapy should provide useful day to day tools for lasting change. To that end I specialize in helping couples communicate with one another in a manner that is collaborative rather than aggressive. I also offer professional coaching designed to help individuals better their communication skills in interpersonal relationships and the workplace.

 

My work draws from several therapeutic modalities, primarily solution focused and relational. I enjoy getting to know my clients, learning about who they are, and understanding what makes them tick. I also think kindness, compassion, and a sense of humor are invaluable tools in creating a better life for oneself.

Therapy is a joint effort. We will explore your gifts and challenges as well as the stories you have about yourself and how they impact your life. We will look at your past and draw connections between it, your present, and your future. We will uncover your abilities to move your life in the direction you desire. I work from a place of non-judgement and strive to break down the traditional hierarchy that exists between client and therapist. No one knows more about you than you.

I'm passionate about helping people uncover the strengths that allow them to live more fulfilled lives. I see adolescents, adults, and families for a variety of issues including parenting and co-parenting support and assistance, anxiety, depression, communication skills, work and career concerns, teen life, social issues, mid-life issues, divorce support, and alternative lifestyles. 

I also have a specific interest in working with members of the LGBTQ community as well as non gender conforming folks.

About Me

About Me

I received my MA in Counseling Psychotherapy from Antioch University, Los Angeles. While there I worked with a variety of underserved populations, including adults who had developmental disabilities and dually diagnosed adolescents.

While living in Angola for several years, I gained invaluable insight into the struggles of others, both emotional and physical. Upon returning to the United States I worked as a therapist and executive in the world of international adoption.

In addition to seeing clients for individual psychotherapy, I am also a Director of the Marina Counseling Center, a non-profit low fee counseling center and training site for MFT interns. When not at work I enjoy time with my wife, two teens, and three dogs.
