About My Clients
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in substance abuse and dependency recovery, family recovery, codependency, and personal transformation. My Masters in Counseling is from San Diego State University, I have 33 years of clinical experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups.
My Background and Approach
Common challenges I help people address include compassion fatigue, substance abuse, lack of satisfaction in their couple and family relationships, chronic worry, excessive anger, conflicts in parenting/co-parenting responsibilities, and out-of-control children/adolescents. I believe it’s a tremendous gift to be witness to peoples’ healing as they implement changes in their lives that bring satisfaction, serenity, and growth. I utilize an addiction recovery model based on spiritual principles integrated with coping skills informed by mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and a trauma-informed approach.
