As a psychotherapist and coach I support my clients with the tools they need to find fulfillment in life and work – secure and confident in the choices they make. Through a trusting relationship I guide my clients on a journey of self discovery that uncovers the potential for change and growth that lies within every individual.

Psychotherapy I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC 41355). In my practice I focus mainly on adults, teenagers and families with a variety of emotional, personal, and relationship issues. As founder and team leader of the Mid-Peninsula DBT team I offer Dialectical Behavior Therapy which consists of skills training groups, individual therapy, phone coaching, and support for families. I am also trained in EMDR to help clients relieve many types of psychological distress.

Corporate Coaching

As a certified coach I am dedicated to assisting technically proficient scientists and engineers make a successful transition into becoming dynamic team leaders and managers with the necessary people skills and managerial acumen.

My services include corporate coaching for managers who want to become dynamic team leaders and effective communicators. I also provide a facilitated in-house mentoring program for corporations that value leadership development and synergies among functions.

Life Coaching is focused on helping clients find fulfillment in life regardless of whether they are struggling with chronic pain or illness, addiction issues or ADD. Life coaching can help clients transform their entrenched behaviors that inhibit their full potential for participation in life.


All we need to begin with is a dream that we can do better than before.

All we need to have is faith, and that dream will come true.

All we need to do is act, and the time for action is now
