I am a California licensed psychotherapist (Marriage and Family Therapist, lic. #MFC33084). I have had extensive training in working with process and awareness for effective psychotherapy, am a graduate of the Gestalt Training Center of San Diego (with Erving & Miriam Polster), and have trained with the Pacific Gestalt Institute in Los Angeles.
I strongly believe that the challenging work of real personal growth is best accomplished in an atmosphere of safety, caring, and support, and am dedicated to providing this for my clients.
In addition to life-changing individual psychotherapy, I work effectively with couples attempting to save their relationship, and have been successful at significantly reducing conflict within many families. I also lead ongoing Gestalt Therapy groups. For more information on psychotherapy from a Relational Gestalt Therapy perspective, click here.
I have also chosen to specialize in working within the Family Law field, am experienced in Court Appointed Child Custody Evaluation, Divorce Mediation, and Coparenting Counseling, and trained in the roles of Divorce Coach and Child Specialist for the practice of Collaborative Divorce. I am the author of the book "Divorcing Peacefully: Why It's Essential and How To Do It".
