I specialize in individual, couples and group therapy in my private practice in Concord, California. I am also a certified Reconnective Healing practitioner.
As a marriage and family therapist since 1985 and a graduate of JFKU licensed in Marriage and Family Therapy, I work with a variety of issues and concerns.
Areas of expertise include relationship issues, hypnotherapy, pre-marital counseling, couples counseling, separation/divorce counseling, women in transition, women's issues, spouses of gays, aging parents, loss/grief, depression, existential issues, Reconnective Healing and more. My intention is to create a safe and accepting environment where the patterns of belief and behavior that are causing you emotional pain or blocks can be seen, self-awareness developed and learning new ways to get your deepest needs met. My desire and therapeutic approach are to provide support and practical feedback to help you come to satisfactory solutions for the particular personal challenges that you might have. Over the years I have gathered a lot of tools and techniques than enable to me to address your unique situation with the best approach possible...one size does not fit all. My desire is to provide for you an environment that allows for growth, understanding and compassion for self and others.
