It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to provide individual and couples therapy in Orange County since 1993.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Newport Beach, CA
Whatever is causing your stress and anxiety, we can find the best counseling approach to help you feel calm and able to manage your day to day life better. You can take steps toward overcoming social anxiety and begin to feel more at ease in social situations. The discoveries I can help you make in counseling can create a foundation of security and a lasting ability to cope with life's difficulties in a healthy, confident and optimistic way!
Whether you have lost a loved one, a romantic relationship, a job or a pet, it can feel overwhelming to deal with the emotions and thoughts that emerge. I know what it feels like, too. I also know it does get better, and that having help along the way is definitely the best way through. If you are overwhelmed with sadness, having trouble moving forward with your life, feeling angry or guilty about something, or just feeling very alone, I am here for you.
As a couples therapist, I pay special attention to helpful and unhelpful patterns in the relationship, and I provide a third-party perspective on what is going on. You will have the chance to make new discoveries about yourself and your partner, practice specific skills (in sessions and at home), and learn to create a loving, trusting, and healthy relationship.
