CA Lic. #MFC52889
I am currently a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California.  I have worked as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 2006.  I have a master's degree in Nutrition as well as one in Counseling and Educational Psychology. I am married and have two children and have lived in the Lake Tahoe area since 1990.

 I have extensive experience with severely emotionally disturbed children and adults with significant mental illness.  I have experience working with children with Autistic Spectrum disorders, Mental Retardation, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and those children working to manage difficult transitional periods in their lives.  I have worked with many people with personality disorder traits and attachment issues.  I have also worked with many people who wish to make small changes to improve their lives.  I truly enjoy my work and have great desire to help others achieve more happiness and serenity in their lives.

I have much interest and experience with anxiety disorders.  In this world with high stress, high need for achievement and demands for performance, more and more people are becoming overwhelmed.  I work to help them find their center; to appreciate the person that they are and to help them to use that knowledge to cope with their ever changing world.  I help parents to recognize the signs of anxiety and give them tools to help their child to deescalate.  Anxiety is treatable, and no one needs to
suffer.
