I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Sacramento, CA. I have been practicing for ten (10) years and I emphatically believe in treating the whole person--mind, body and soul. I love being an active part of my community, working with individuals who are searching for clarity, perspective, and insight into their deepest thoughts, feelings and desires. I have a passion for helping individuals who want to develop insight into their behavior and an understanding of why they keep making the same mistakes or bad decisions over and over again in different areas of their lives. Your "quality world" has everything to do with your thought process and your decision making. If you want to develop insight or begin to understand your internal motivations--what makes you tick, I can help. Also, I am gifted in working with couples who are struggling to find common ground, improve communication and intimacy and develop financial oneness. In my practice, I work with individuals, couples and families who are struggling with: Co-dependency, relationship difficulties, change of life transitions (empty-nest, retirement, divorce, birth or death, etc.), religious abuse or faith/spirituality issues, self-esteem or self-confidence issues, eating disorders, stress, anxiety, depression, time management, financial stress or money management issues, life balance, self-care, insight or self-awareness, anger management, cultural or diversity issues, body image and self-acceptance. I also have success working with women of color on discrimination, assimilation, and complex trauma issues resulting from childhood abuse.
