I see clients online and have an office in Carlsbad . I am able to work with all clients that are California residents thru online counseling.I started the Carlsbad Counseling Center in 1994. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have extensive experience in the fields of both pre-marital and marriage counseling. Office and  Online counseling is available.
My primary orientation and therapeutic work is done using Emotionally Focused Therapy. I am a trained Mediator, assisting clients in preparing for various meetings related to divorce, custody evaluations and dispositions. I also specialize in assessment and crisis intervention, issues surrounding the transitions and turbulence of adolescence and adjustment issues. 
For over 20 years I have worked in both in-patient and out-patient settings.
