I simply love being in this field! I went to school here in San Diego at the University of Phoenix. I live on a farm/winery with my husband, son, stepson, and a variety of farm animals. I have three adult daughters and my first grandchild is due in March. I’ve worked primarily with families where there is some type of domestic violence incident. I prefer not working with children but consider myself a good couples’ therapist. I will work with parents having issues with their children or people who are going through divorce. I can treat adult individuals, senior citizens, and persons of any sexual orientation/gender. My stepson is transgender, and this has provided me a significant insight regarding this.

Approach & Values

: I am trained in TF-CBT and AF-CBT.  I’m primarily a strength-based and solution-focused therapist.  I believe change comes from within and by changing self-talk almost anything is possible.  I focus on the relationship between thoughts, feelings, behaviors and environment.
