offering counseling for couples & individuals

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and I am passionate about helping people develop and maintain secure and healthy relationships with themselves and others. I have been in private practice in Santa Clara, CA, since 1993.

for couples

Are you struggling to feel emotionally connected to your partner?
Are you getting into the same arguments over and over again?
Are resentments and hurts piling up?
Has there been an affair or major rupture?
Are you preparing for a change (baby, empty nest, pre-marital therapy)?
Do you just want to strengthen your relationship?

Relationships are difficult, and couples can get stuck in patterns that seem unresolvable. My approach is very interactive. From the very first session, couples will begin to identify their attachment styles, and to learn and practice effective ways to feel safe and secure with one other.

for individuals

Individuals come to me for a help with a variety of challenges, including anxiety, stress, difficulty with parenting, struggles with extended family, depression. Sometimes people just want to have a supportive therapeutic relationship to learn more about themselves, and about their own attachment styles or patterns. Whatever brings you in, we will work together to help you feel happier and more capable and connected to yourself and to others.
