Experienced and Professional

I have been providing psychotherapy and counseling in the San Jose area to individuals, couples and families of all ethnicities, orientations, and walks of life for almost twenty years.

Since I understand how difficult it can be to to find a good therapist and start therapy, this website is an attempt to give you a better idea of what to expect if you decide to meet with me.

Explore the Site

On the About page, you can find descriptions of my theoretical orientation, my philosophy about therapy, and a little about my professional history.

The Services page provides information about who I work with and how I structure the therapy.

In the Archives area I have included some essays and articles I have written, and a few links to other websites you may find interesting or helpful.

There is also a section devoted to the Forms I’ll ask you to complete if we set up an appointment.

Please feel free to contact me either to set up an appointment or for more information.
