Hello & Welcome

Seeking Help: How does someone go about choosing a therapist for counseling? All therapists have gone to school for years, had supervised training, sat for a state exam and become licensed by the state. We are also required to get continuing education every year to stay on top of the latest developments, and read, read, read.

So, why choose to work with me?

You are coming to therapy to talk about very personal and private matters, and you want to feel better. You need to find a safe environment where you can receive confidential treatment that will help you feel less anxious and uncomfortable.

I will work with you to help you get in touch with what is happening to you and to help you feel understood. Then, as you gain insight, you can begin to heal the emotional pain you have been experiencing, and with these discoveries you can begin to make changes in your life.

I work with individual adults, couples and families. Areas of focus in my practice include relationship problems, medical problems, drug & alcohol problems, marriage & family problems, anxiety, depression, anger, aging and geriatric issues. When it appears to be an appropriate adjunct to therapy, I can also consult with physicians regarding medication or with other colleagues regarding psychological testing.

I am a licensed Psychologist providing therapeutic counseling to individuals and families who are in the Half Moon Bay and San Mateo area.
