 I am passionate about working with couples. Part of my passion comes from my marriage where I found that, in working through the ups and downs, our love has grown stronger. Confronting relationship challenges has helped me grow. It has also helped me discover that a good partnership requires an ongoing commitment to do the things necessary to deepen love.

This has inspired me to encourage couples to achieve their highest potential in love relationships, and I work hard to help them attain this. I have a deep desire to understand what makes intimate relationships successful, and as a result, I’m committed to ongoing training and learning. Every couple I work with teaches me something new.

I received my Marriage and Family Therapist license in 1980. I focused my doctoral dissertation on the treatment of couples and consider myself an authority on relationships. I have extensive training in psychoanalytic and object relations theory. I received my Masters from Sonoma State University and Doctorate from the Sanville Institute in Berkeley.

I’ve worked for Sonoma County Mental Health and served as a consultant for psychotherapists in private practice and several Social Service agencies. I’ve taught psychology classes at Sonoma State University and the Santa Rosa Junior College and presented numerous workshops on such issues as relationship problems, stress, anxiety, and stepfamily struggles.
