I'm so glad you're here and thinking about seeking help. Deciding that you're ready to change and developing a good relationship with a therapist you feel comfortable with are the first steps toward taking charge of your life and feeling better. I’m a Fair Oaks psychologist and certified EFT therapist who loves helping people heal old wounds, learn new skills, and grow into happier, healthier human beings. I feel privileged to be a part of my clients’ journeys as they let go of old patterns and develop new ways of seeing themselves and the world around them. I'm committed to creating a warm, compassionate, and open environment for you to heal, learn, and grow. When things get tough, I'll be here to offer you the hope, enthusiasm, and humor you need to keep going and the guidance and feedback you need to stay on track with your goals and achieve real, lasting change.
My passion as a therapist is helping people develop happy, close relationships with their partners, family, and friends. I especially enjoy helping couples — gay and straight, married and unmarried — recover from the distress of chronic disconnection and helping them build the warm, secure bonds they long for. I also love helping people on their personal journeys of growth and healing, including helping men and women heal and move forward from traumatic or abusive experiences in their past. Some of the issues I can help you with include...
Repairing your relationships and building deeper, more connected bonds
Recovering from depression, anxiety, and grief
Learning stress management, communication, and assertiveness skills
Learning how to identify and connect with your feelings
Healing from painful or traumatic personal experiences
