I’ve been married for 23 years to my wonderful husband, and we are joyfully raising our two children — one of whom has autism. Contact my office to get more information about my services, as well as to schedule your first appointment.

I’ve been serving the people of Simi Valley for the past 27 years. My background includes clinical experience in psychology, parenting, advocacy, family dynamics, counseling, and therapy. As a result, I am able to help my clients uncover what blocks them from reaching their full potential.

My clients consistently show an excellent treatment success rate. From reaching their goals to receiving on-going support, they report that I am effective in helping them improve their lives. I am able to do this partly by continual education and research, as well as my ability to customize a treatment plan to meet each individual’s needs.

I am a passionate marriage and family counselor who believes in helping you locate hidden strengths, resources, and purpose in order to support your healing while meeting your goals, both individually and in your relationship.
