Empathetic, interactive and a safe environment in which to focus on concerns is the way my client have described therapy with me.
I am a solution focused relationship therapist who helps to guide couples and individuals towards greater clarity and transformative change in their intimate or close relationships. I take you through a life-examining process combined with a structured approach to shifting from problem focused to solution building. Most people are stuck because of old, negative thoughts & reactions. Your relief will come when you become unstuck.
My specialties are couples and relationship counseling and anxiety and depression therapy. I also work with people who have had a difficult or abusive childhood and persons trying to come to terms with having a narcissistic mother.
I have been an MFT in Marin County for 20 years, but prior to that I worked in education and business sector. I gained insight into the challenges of intense stress and how repetitive patterns of thoughts, and life behaviors can have a detrimental affect on our lives and relationships. I hold a Bachelors of Art from San Francisco State and a Masters of Art in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco. Also, I have taught a number of classes on relationships and parenting around the Marin community.
