I can say with absolute certainty that you are not alone in your difficulties, and you certainly don't have to face the world alone. My clients patiently and persistently work to create more confidence, higher self-esteem, stronger relationships, better health, and more emotional balance.
I know we all need someone to talk to who will listen and accept us without judgment. I offer my clients a safe and judgment-free place where they can explore the challenges that prevent them from living the lives of their dreams.
My areas of expertise include couples counseling and sex therapy. I have undergone training in Gottman Therapy, in addition to receiving extensive acclaim for my work in the field of sexual health. I was voted as the AASECT leader for the San Francisco Bay Areas. We'll work together to set clear goals, focus on your strengths, draw upon your resources, reflect upon your difficulties, and be curious about how your difficulties affect you. I tailor my approach to fit your needs, never applying a one size fits all approach.
