About Me

I work with individuals and couples in Walnut Creek, California.  With over 20 years experience as a therapist,  I like to help people identify their inner experiences to know themselves so they can have more genuine and fulfilling lives.  I use AEDP (Accelerated Experiental Dynamic Psychotherapy) Interpersonal, Emotion focused, Experiential and other therapy types to help a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of interest are depression, anxiety, substance abuse, codependency, childhood and adult trauma, relationships, aging parents, and medical problems.

I am an interactive, experiential therapist.  My therapeutic approach focuses on the internal information that identify and strengthen our best parts to meet  life's challenges.  I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client.  With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths.
