I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been in private practice for over 30 years. I have recently added EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping to my practice.
Practicing in California, I work with a variety of clients including children, families and adults. I am involved in the Collaborative Divorce Process as a Coach and Child Specialist with training in mediation and negotiation. I also have experience working with domestic violence, addiction and codependency. My special interests include working with individuals to change long term behavior patterns brought on by co-dependency and childhood trauma, helping children and families adjust to divorce, and families with young children struggling with the adjustment to parenting and changes in their relationship.
I started out my career working with preschool aged children and their families. Working with children I found that a large percentage of them were coming to me as a result of the family going through a divorce. Not only was I seeing these families being pulled apart by the process, but I also saw them continuing to have conflict for years after the legal settlement. When I learned about Collaborative Divorce, a respectful and needs based alternative to litigation, I took the specialized training to become a Collaborative Divorce Coach and Child Specialist.
Married with two adult children I understand the difficulties facing families. I am interested in helping individuals understand the nature of conflict and move past their blocks to creating positive relationships for themselves and the people around them.
