About My Practice

Services
As a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, the most meticulous therapy expertise will be utilized during your counseling sessions. I offer a problem solving Systemic approach to therapy including an understanding of your goals for treatment and working together to solve these problems in a focused, planned way. The treatment will look at the system in which you and your challenge exists including family, work, religion, society, etc., and seek to understand how these factors affect your situation. Potentially, this new understanding may lead the way to greater maturity and happiness as an individual, couple, or family. As Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Enriching Relationships, Inc., a veteran university professor, an ordained minister, the Skyline Church of Rancho San Diego Counseling Pastor all combined create an atmosphere by which Christian principles may be integrated during your therapeutic experience. As a published author in children, adolescence, and couple related books, magazines, and publications, and training and experience in EMDR and CBT - a research-based treatment shown to be helpful to trauma management - your overall therapeutic treatment will be given the most comprehensive care.
