I am a warm, compassionate, and experienced San Diego Therapist who is solution-focused and my goal is to provide an environment of trust and mutual respect so that you can uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
