I provide individual, couples and family therapy to those struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, relationship and family / parenting issues. I help individuals, families and couples improve their relationships through learning new ways of recognizing and meeting their basic needs in positive ways. I have experience addressing a wide range of mental health needs over a 20 year period as a social worker in the NYC foster care system, as a Clinical Program Manager and Clinical Director for agencies in Sacramento, and as a Therapist with Dignity Health Medical Foundation and Folsom-Cordova Unified School District.
I provide support to individuals and couples in the midst of life transitions, overwhelming feelings and seemingly unsolvable problems by utilizing solution-focused methods designed to draw upon the inner strength that is within us all. I strive to be clear and direct, down-to-earth and practical.
I draw primarily from Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused and RealityTherapy / Choice Theory modalities. However, I feel that the collaborative alliance between therapist and client is the most important factor. I will ensure that alliance with you is created in a natural, comfortable, non-judgmental environment as we work together on your goals.
