Therapy is a process of growth and change. Changing patterns that aren't working, creating positive change, and increasing happiness in your relationships, work, family, life, and self. I believe positive change is abundantly possible, but that sometimes it is easier to get there with some support and help. Counseling provides an opportunity to openly and securely discuss struggles, decrease stress, increase understanding of self and others, find solutions, and create positive change. I incorporate Attachment Theory and Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) methods with constructive insights, guidance, and empathy. I offer analytical feedback when appropriate, and encourage you to express any thoughts or needs about our sessions or your progress.

I provide individuals and couples with effective help in a safe atmosphere where problems can be freely explored. We look at how you think and feel about circumstances in your life while working on new approaches and responses that lead to positive change, more peace of mind, and happier relationships.

More Info About My Practice

I am licensed by the Board of Behavioral Sciences, with a Masters degree in Psychology from CSU East Bay, and certifications in EMDR, Clinical Supervision, and Civil & Family Mediation.

Over the past 8 years I provided services in dispute mediation, performance enhancement coaching, and psychotherapy services. I am the Clinical Director of Programs for Contra Costa Crisis Center, where I manage several programs and departments including: Grief Counseling; Clinical Intern Training; and a 24/7 call center for crisis and suicide hotlines.

I approach counseling as a collaborative process, fostering growth and change from relationship issues, personal habits, insecurities, undesired patterns, and life stressors. This involves uncovering your patterns and non-constructive beliefs in your life, towards working through the challenges you are experiencing.
