Relationship health and personal strength. That's what we all want to experience in our lives, and they are the two main requirements for a good and happy life. What you need is the right Counselor/Coach who can help. It's my pleasure to provide counseling, coaching, and psychotherapy services to the Long Beach and Orange County areas. I love working with individual clients and helping both straight and gay relationships.
My treatment specializations include:
- Couples counseling
- Anxiety and Stress Management
- Depression, Grief, and Loss
- Life Transitions and Midlife Transition
- Career Coaching and Life Coaching
- Gay & Lesbian Issues
- Personal & Spiritual Growth
My therapeutic approach combines the best of short-term, solution-focused therapy and deeper-level psychodynamic therapy. I apply these principles in an integrated way for both individual clients and with couples. Each client and each couple needs a unique approach, not "one size fits all." Together we'll develop a plan that allows you to know what progress is needed, and how to get from point A to point B. You might be surprised at how much progress you can make in a limited number of sessions. Together we'll talk about your goals and how much time you'll need to reach them.
The two most important factors for a successful outcome in therapy are first, that there's a good fit between the therapist and the client, and second, the shared commitment of both the therapist and client to treatment, and their belief in the outcome. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to your individual needs.
