About me

I have been a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist since 1983. My experience includes working with groups, individuals, couples, and families dealing with a variety of issues such as domestic violence, child abuse, trauma, personality disorders, role adjustments, suicide, anxiety, stress, and depression to name a few. My training includes hypnotherapy, existential/humanistic dynamic therapy, family systems and strategic solution focused therapies, multicultural counseling. My specializations include working with Spanish speaking families, crisis intervention and suicide prevention, group counseling, and trauma work through hypnotherapy and dialectal therapies. I have an empathic style with a very genuine approach. I am flexible and at times direct, but attempt a certain humility with everyone as I believe people know more about themselves than I do. I see myself joining clients on their raft and flowing downstream with them as they explore the waters of their lives. I like to think of myself as an anchor holding onto clients while they climb the mountain. The journey is not as scary when there is someone there to be an emotional support.
