Tel: 805-669-6261

Using warmth and empathy, I provide a safe environment for you to explore how to strengthen your sense of self and your intimate relationships, enabling you to heal and grow authentically. I offer compassionate support to individuals and couples facing relationship difficulties, adjusting to challenging life transitions, and/or hoping to improve mental well-being.

I specialize in couples and can help you improve communication, reconnect with your partner, and deepen intimacy. My goal is to help you gain personal insight, improve relationships, and explore life’s concerns, conflicts, and contradictions. I use Attachment Theory, existential humanism (the search for meaning and self-realization) and an emotion-focused approach to help identify feelings and behaviors. I believe you are the expert on you and your experience.

I have experience with LGBTQ+ and speak German, French, Swedish and English.
