I believe therapy should be practical and strength based. Identifying and building on the strengths of the individuals, couples and families I work with is essential to creating sustainable growth and change.
I view therapy as a collaboration between myself and my clients. You and I will work together to find what works for you in your life.
Not just couples and families
I see individuals, couples, families and groups. I have more than 25 years of experience working with a variety of issues including life transitions, relationship struggles, communication problems, depression, anxiety, parenting, divorce and co-parenting.
As I think about my work, I realize that I’m drawn to working with people in transition. So much of life is about transitions: from childhood to adolescence; leaving home; starting a relationship; becoming a parent; divorce; blending families; job changes; illness; retirement; loss, etc. I write that list as though it all happens in an orderly fashion, but we all know that isn’t true. Sometimes you are ready for it. Sometimes it is a complete surprise or several of these changes happen at the same time. Not everyone experiences all of these transitions. At their best, transitions can be a time of growth and excitement. However they can also be a time of fear, depression and confusion. I can help you turn your transition, whether welcome or not, into an opportunity to live a healthier and more satisfying life.
Fees and insurance
I charge $150/50 minute session for individuals and $160 for couples and families. I accept MediCal insurance through Beacon Partnership, as space allows. I am out-of-network for all other insurance which allows you to use your out-of-network benefits as well as any Health Savings Account monies you may have.
