     I started the Carlsbad Counseling Center in 1994. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have extensive experience in the fields of both pre-marital and marriage counseling. In-Office and Online Counseling services are available. 

     My primary orientation and therapeutic work is done using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy with couples and families. Both of these modalities share a common theoretical base in attachment and emotional development. Understanding and appreciating how and why we learned our self care in numerous ways and situations, the struggle then can be as adults, our ways of coping and living have now become hindrances instead of helps.

    I do court mandated Reunification Therapy. The parameters and structure may be unique to each family. There is a set protocol and within that each treatment plan is personalized to the family that is going thru this difficult process.

     I am a trained Mediator and I work to assist couples with various spefic issues related to Parenting and Custody issues. I, as Carlsbad Counseling Center, am on the following San Diego Superior Court Program Resource lists: Reunification (Conjoint) Therapy, Parenting, Co-Parenting (inc. High Conflict), multiple classes:Shop Lifting, Anger Management . 

     For over 25 years I have worked in both in-patient and out-patient settings. I am trained and work with clients from a variety of religious, cultural and personal backgrounds. I am a lifetime member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, active member in good standing in: San Diego North County CAMFT, the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.
