Marriage and Family Counseling-Personal Growth-Children, Adolescents, and Teens


Services Provided


I work with a wide range of clients who are from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and of unique life experiences. I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to fit each individual's needs. In a supportive, non-judgmental, and confidential environment, I facilitate clients to attain the professional and personal growth they're striving for.  Whether you are struggling in a relationship, going through a painful breakup or a divorce, or are contemplating a career change, or are having difficulty moving on after you've lost a loved one, or you simply desire to feel better about yourself, the transformation starts now when you make a decision to Contact Me for a free phone consultation. 

I offer sessions in-person, on Skype, and by phone (existing clients only).  We will start with an initial assessment to clearly define your short and long term goals, including but not limited to, effective communication with others, better relationships, coping with grief and loss, dealing with past traumatic events, overcoming social anxiety, decreasing symptoms of depression and anxiety, increase job performance and productivity, and achieving personal acceptance. We will use your goals as a foundation to create personalized strategies for attaining your objectives. Click Here to schedule your complimentary phone consultation. 

My Sessions are 50 minutes for individuals, 90 minutes for couples and families, and 120 minutes for groups. Frequency of services are entirely a client's decision.  Most clients have weekly sessions.  Some clients prefer to come in more than once a week, others only need bi-weekly or monthly maintenance sessions.  

Service Fees are determined by a sliding scale based on your income and financial comfort, ranging from $80 to $250 per session.  I do reserve time for individuals who have limited finances due to special circumstances. Please contact me to discuss your need for counseling at a more affordable rate.
