Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been a licensed MFT for thirty years, with a Ph.D. in Counseling from U.S.C. My therapeutic orientation is cognitive-behavioral and humanistic. I am compassionate, supportive, affirming toward my clients, and non-judgmental. I work with diverse client populations, with any religious, cultural, or sexual orientation. I especially enjoy working with sexual assault survivors and their partners, adult children of alcoholics, and transgender clients. I have a background in Jungian and Gestalt approaches, guided imagery, and behavioral homework. I love to help clients feel more fulfilled in life by reaching their potential.

My area of special emphasis is helping people improve their important relationships, and working with my clients to decrease and stop depression.

Whether it's difficulty with a partner or spouse, teens or parents, friends or co-workers, a troubled relationship is painful.
