Marriage & Family Therapist
Helping you to be...
"all that you can be!"
I have been a therapist over 30 years, specializing in individuals, couples, families, adolescents and children. I am certified by Terry Real founder of the RELATIONAL LIFE INSTITUTE specializing in couples therapy.I am also a certified PARENTING SKILLS EDUCATOR and lecturer in the UCLA-Motion Picture and Television Wellness Program for over 16 years. I am positive and practical, providing every client with support and encouragement directed at his/her growth and individuality.
I believe that relationships, being connected to others and living well, are an essential part of being human. I use a Respect for Relationship model which strives to enhance marriages, and relationships in general. Each person has the right to full respect living thus, I strive to help couples, families, or individuals develop the skills to enjoy happier, more satisfying relationships.
I am an ardent champion for children and work hard to insure that their respective voices are heard and their respective needs recognized. I believe in encouragement, consequential learning and have been trained in the Positive Discipline model working toward celebrating the individual talents and unique qualities of each client of every age.
I have an office in Encino, California where I see clients as individuals, couples, families and in group formats.
I teach classes, lecture and can be a group facilitator in the Los
Angeles area (at your home, business, church, temple or school);
I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver the best service in the profession.
