I have been a marriage family therapist since 1988.  I’ve lived in Temecula since 1989, where we raised our three children.  I work with couples, individuals, family and groups.

Being an artist I use analogies and word pictures to illustrate key concepts.  Early in my career, I was a teacher and continue to see myself in the role of teacher making things clear and understood, gaining insights, finding strength and a path through what’s ahead.

As your therapist we will talk, argue, laugh together and I will ask you to do your homework and take an active role in your therapy.  In my practice I work with people who struggle with anxiety, panic disorder, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anger problems and domestic violence issues, marital relationships, attention deficit disorder, and stress management issues. I’m also available to speak on these topics as well as a service to your organization, church and business.

I am a Christian and married for over 30 years.  I enjoy road and mountain biking, guitar, drawing, days at the beach and in the mountains, that’s why we live in Temecula.
