20+ years experience as a LMFT providing psychotherapy to youth, families, adults, and couples,


My practice is open to all life stages and circumstances. I focus on Family System Therapy when working individually, with couples, or a family. I am an intuitive therapist and work from an eclectic mix of theoretical styles. My work with adolescents is vast and although it is a specialty it is not limiting. Family therapy, couples, and individual adults of all ages are equally served. When appropriate my collaboration with you may also include your health team, your family, your child’s school, etc.

I would like to meet you with a complimentary telephone consultation. I have flexible days and hours for office visits. I provide home visits if the situation and need warrants. Face to face sessions are preferred but I am also available for telephone and video sessions. I accept cash or check at the time of service. I do not accept insurance. I do have some sliding scale and pro bono slots available.

I was born and raised in Marin County, moved to Sonoma County 21 years ago. I am married and have a daughter heading to college Fall 2022. I love animals, travel, art, and the outdoors.
