As a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, the most meticulous therapy expertize will be utilized during your counseling sessions. I offer a problem solving Systemic approach to therapy including an understanding of your goals for treatment and working together to solve these problems in a focused, planned way. The treatment will look at the system in which you and your challenge exists including family, work, religion, society, etc., and seek to understand how these factors affect your situation. Potentially, this new understanding may lead the way to greater maturity and happiness as an individual, couple, or family.
As owner and director of Family Counseling Services, Inc., a veteran university professor, an ordained minister, the Skyline Church of Rancho San Diego Counseling Pastor, and President of the non-pofit Center for Enriching Relationships, Inc. all combined create an atmosphere by which Christian principles may be integrated during your therapeutic experience.
