You may be entering into therapy out of distress, marital conflict or parental struggles, many people decide that they want to deal with past issues or habits that they would like to not be a part of their daily lives. Some people want to deal with the anxiety or social issues that cause them to not be as successful (in relationships/professionally) as they might be. Others are struggling with deeper issues that are preventing them from living their lives in the way that isn't self destructive or harmful to self and the people that are important to them.

     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 , Accelerated Resolution Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy with couples and families. Both modalities are Evidence based therapies.  I use Accelerated Resolution Therapy with Trauma, Anxiety and PTSD. 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 involved Individual therapy for adults and minors. 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, as Carlsbad Counseling Center, am on the following San Diego Superior Court Program Resource lists:  Individual Therapy, Parenting, Co-Parenting (inc. High Conflict), multiple classes:Shop Lifting, Anger Management . 

     For almost 30 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.
