What I Do

I provide a nonjudgmental, compassionate, and practical environment to work with individuals and couples in achieving their relationship goals, whether it's coping with grief, accepting a loss, dealing with transition, or seeking connection.

I look for the best in my clients and partner it with my education, training, and experience to develop satisfying solutions, tools, and skills. I listen and I talk.

I'm committed to providing excellent service, and that means I am responsive to feedback and attentive to what uniquely works for each individual and couple.


I Specialize in:

Grief, Loss, Transition, Connection, Communication, and Anxiety.

I work with:

Adults, Couples, Elders, Teens, and Groups.

Straight, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Questioning.

People vary in the amount of sessions they need to feel better and move forward. Clients usually see improvement and resolution between 1-7 weekly sessions, and have the option to continue with more sessions or return at a later date to review tools or address other issues.


I offer a free, 15-minute initial consultation by phone to see if we're a therapeutic fit, as this greatly determines the success of working together.

I welcome your questions, comments, and concerns at 831.607.9773.

I have competitive rates and will discuss them when we choose to work together.

Private payment by cash, check, money order, Venmo, or Square Cash accepted at the beginning of each session.
