My goal as a therapist is to help you find lasting solutions so you can build the life you want with the people you love.
My style of therapy is brief and solution-focused. It's my goal to help my clients find relief and happiness by teaching them new skills that will be beneficial in everyday life. Through the use of cognitive/behavioral and strengths-based exercises, I help my clients build confidence, reduce anxiety and depression and heal from painful experiences. For relationship therapy, I work with each couple to create a unique plan for growth and healing. I provide structured, yet spontaneous, ways for couples to learn. new ways to communicate and skills method of intervention for improving relationships.
For twelve years, I have successfully worked with couples and individuals to rebuild broken relationships and make personal changes that result in peace and connection. I help my clients work through conflict, addiction, trauma, infidelity and other issues that challenge relationships. I teach practical skills and help clients identify and maximize their individual and relational strengths. I provide a kind and supportive environment for people who are working through life's transitions.
My previous professional experience in the high-tech world gives me a unique perspective of the stress often associated with living in the Silicon Valley area. I understand the impact it can have on those who work in the industry, as well as on their families and other relationships.
I received a Bachelor's Degree from Texas A&M University and a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Houston. I have been practicing for 12 years and hold credentials to practice in California (Lic#93561) and Texas (Lic#201240).
