Are you feeling "blue" but not sure why? Do you find yourself thinking negatively about yourself and your life? Do you feel lonely or wonder why you don't have better relationships? Do you wish you could be more assertive and go after what you want? These are some of the issues I can help you with. I use a gentle, collaborative approach to psychotherapy, providing a safe place for you to talk about what is on your mind and to help you understand yourself better.
I have over twelve years of experience treating adults in both individual and couples therapy. Some of my specialties include the treatment of depression and anxiety, improving self-esteem, resolving family issues, recovering from grief, and increasing assertiveness. I respect diversity, am culturally sensitive and gay friendly.
I am also a writer and a teacher. I co-authored Case Studies in Abnormal Psychology,used in colleges nationwide.I have been on the graduate faculty of the Marriage and Family Therapy program at San Diego State University. Call for an initial phone consultation to discuss your particular situations.
