Your emotional health and relationships are important, and you deserve to receive quality assistance with these vital aspects of your life. As a therapist, I am dedicated to assist you to maximize your potential and live a full, gratifying life. Every client with whom I work deserves personalized care, respect, and responsiveness. This attitude helps clients feel safe enough to consider new ways of approaching life's challenges. Whether you seek individual, couples or family therapy (or perhaps some combination of these), I invite you to call for a brief discussion about your concerns.
My breadth of training and experience allows me to be highly flexible as a therapist. I am well trained in the application of behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, psychodynamic, interpersonal and humanistic therapies. In many cases, several of these approaches are applied at various stages of the treatment process.
I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1988. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from an esteemed and specialized counseling program (Community Based Block Program) at San Diego State University in 1982 and graduated from Healthcare Executive Leadership Progam at the University of California San Diego in 1996. I specialize in cultural diversity and am fully bilingual in Spanish.
