“With the gift of listening comes the gift of healing.”
As a licensed psychotherapist I specialize in Individual Psychotherapy and maintain a private practice in Santa Clarita, California.
I have 40 years experience helping individuals and couples with a range of emotional issues, relationship difficulties, depression, addictions, anxiety, as well as dealing with transitions in life, to name a few. You can imagine with a career that has spanned so many years I have left out something. Never hesitate to ask a therapist if they have experience with what you are presenting.
My style of therapy is warm, compassionate, active, and engaging. As a client centered/solution-focused therapist my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. I incorporate a blend of conventional and alternatives approaches, drawing upon a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. Together we can explore and restore hope and find solutions to your life’s difficulties.
