Family Therapist Temecula


Most people, at some point in their lives, encounter periods of difficulty, change and transition; when personal issues affect their work or relationships.  Families are under a great deal of stress in today’s world, more so today, than ever.  Seeking out therapy can be a difficult decision.  Recognizing the need for additional support is a sign of strength and courage.  Finding the right therapist, one that listens to your concerns, understands your challenges, and genuinely connects with you, can be difficult.

The focus of my work is to provide a warm, supportive environment, in which clients can develop coping strategies, problem solving skills, and confidence.  I am a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in counseling adolescents, individuals, couples and families in a non-judgmental and compassionate manner.  I collaborate with clients in coping with interpersonal, problematic relationships, family conflict, parent-child conflict, depression, anxiety and panic disorders, mood disorders, substance dependence/substance abuse, trauma, life transitions, and grief or loss issues.
