Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been in private practice for 11 years, working in the San Ramon area. I work for several non-profit organizations as well, serving youth in the foster care system and seniors living in low-income housing. This is an ideal blend for me because it provides ongoing opportunities for growth and connections with other mental health providers. I believe that, for me, not maintaining a full-time private practice enables me to give complete attention to each of my individual clients and to approach each session with an open heart. I am particularly interested in grief and loss, cultural concerns, aging and caregiving issues, among others. I also love to help people through periods of transition in their lives, to empower them to make healthy descisions for themselves. I don't work with insurance companies but I do maintain a sliding scale, and have for all the years of my practice.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 
Los Angeles, CA 90064

I have helped hundreds of couples recognize the hidden obstacles that cause pain in their relationship and learn the skills needed to deepen the quality of their relationship as well as resolve conflict. For over twenty five years I have been working with heterosexual and gay couples. I do not believe in a one -size- fits- all approach to therapy.
