If you're thinking about starting therapy, you've already taken the first step toward making a change.  I work with individuals, parents, couples and families to help people move toward living more rewarding lives.  When you are ready to examine your life--to see what's working and what can be improved--I invite you to get in touch with me.  Together we'll take a look at where you've been (your past) in order to understand how you got to where you are (your present) and explore ways you can realize your new goals (your future).

In addition to working with individuals and couples I specialize in helping parents change their dynamics to encourage cooperative, respectful behavior in their kids.  My approach aims to honor each child's individual temperament and unique personality while supporting the parents' role as family leaders.  I help parents set and hold limits with love. 

My articles on relationships, work issues and parenting have appeared in Parents Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, Woman's Day, Working Mother, American Baby, Healthy Kids and other publications.
