About Me


I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 1997 practicing in the San Diego area. My expertise and passion are to help people create empowering relationships. I find the greatest joy is in helping you to find your inner strength to heal yourself and to then create deep intimate relationships with those you love. The beginning relationship starts with you Honoring Yourself First.
