Your Mental Health Matters

In today's fast-paced and increasingly interconnected world, the strains on our psychological and social well-being can seem overwhelming. Mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, or addictive disorders can threaten our happiness and disrupt our social lives, careers, and relationships with family and friends.

Talk therapy with a qualified Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) can bring about a healthier, more positive, more fulfilled life for you and your loved ones. MFTs are relationship experts who are trained to work with individuals, couples (whether married or not), families of all types, and groups to relieve mental, emotional, and relational concerns.

You have the desire for change. A therapist can guide you on your journey toward personal growth and a more satisfying life. You owe it to yourself. Your mental health matters.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Torrance, CA

I have been in practice for 26 years and am pleased to say that after all these years I continue to find the work both meaningful and gratifying. I work differently with each person, depending on the individual's needs.

For individuals the approach is more a problem-solving one as well as addessing the obstacles that block the person from reaching their goals..
