Accepting Clients

I believe every person can benefit from greater self awareness. I provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can be authentic.

Marriage & Family Therapist in Carlsbad, CA

About My Clients

I work with adults, couples, and families. I help with professional challenges, interpersonal relationships, anxiety, depression, trauma, loss and conflict resolution. Many of my clients feel anxious, depressed, angry or stuck. I help those who are sad or unsatisfied with life without a specific precipitating event. Sometimes my clients recognize something isn’t working in their life and they’re ready to make a change.

My Background and Approach

I utilize evidence-based treatment methods, mindfulness and the principals of neuroscience to help my clients work through emotional pain and live more satisfying lives. I believe that therapy is a highly individualized procedure and therefore will draw upon interventions from a variety of modalities to best support each client. In therapy, we will explore the emotions, belief systems, thoughts and behaviors with an eye on what is working and what might be getting in the way of happiness and achieving your goals. I provide a safe and empathic space for reflection, support, insight and new perspectives. I have additional training and experience in anger management and domestic violence. I have helped both survivors and perpetrators gain a better understanding of the factors that led them to unhealthy relationships and what keeps them there. I work to enable better choices through self awareness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

When I am not seeing clients in private practice, I facilitate groups for men who struggle with their anger and want to change their abusive behavior. I am also a volunteer for Crisis Text Line and I consult for a non-profit organization working to help with a variety of causes. I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with friends and family.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
