My Approach to Helping

I am the owner of The Relationship Clinic, conveniently located in Palo Alto near Stanford University. I have been in this field for over 20 years. I offer therapy for couples to improve their relationship. I also offer divorce therapy, singles who are navigating the dating world and/or looking to find that special someone, and pre-marital counseling. My practice is all about relationships.

If you have been struggling in this area, please do not leave it up to chance and hope for the best. Studies have shown that individuals tend to wait a good 6 years before finally contacting a professional! When you place a call to my clinic, you will get a free consultation over the phone. We will spend about 30 minutes talking about the nature of your problem so that I can have an understanding of your particular situation.

I am direct. My goals are two folded: 1) to understand your particular situation, 2) to find a resolution. I have extensive training. I am an experienced, seasoned clinician. You will find yourself in a comfortable, confidential, and professional clinic dedicated to relationships. Please feel free to visit my website for more information.
