Welcome to my practice.  

I offer Individual Counseling and Psychotherapy for men and women and specialize in Relationship Coaching and Couples Counseling.


•  You are frustrated and hurt because you realize you are repeating upsetting and unsatisfying relationships, 

•  You realize you have just "hooked-up" and never had a real relationship,

•  You feel "ignored", "put down" or are "not good enough"

•  You find you have to "walk on eggshells" or fear confrontation 


Then perhaps it is time to discover that you can change these unhappy results and begin to improve your life.

I create a safe, caring and supportive environment where it is possible to learn about yourself and discover how to live the life you want.

I see patients from Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, La Quinta and Indio and beyond the Coachella Valley. 

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and offer insight into why we think and act the way we do so that if that is not working for us, we can change.

In addition, I also offer child and teen counseling and family therapy in Rancho Mirage.  For more information on counseling for teens and children and their families, go to

•  Depression
•  Divorce
•  Defiant children and teens

Communication is important, the willingness to communicate is essential

When communication fails, relationships don’t have a chance.

The most important success skill in any relationship is the ability to communicate. However, what most people don’t realize is that communication is a two-way process. That means, we need to be able to listen as well as we need to be able to talk. If our partner doesn’t hear us (or worse, we don’t hear our partner), relationships have no chance of getting better.

What does it take to have better communication?

It takes a willingness to be present and to care about what your partner is telling you. As you know, this is not always as easy as it should be. We can all get distracted by external events or internal feelings. Many times, our feelings get in the way of our ability to listen and really “hear” what our partner is trying to tell us, particularly if it is not what we want to hear.

This is the time to be honest, really honest. I mean, honest about what is going on inside us. If we are struggling, hurt, angry or feeling so sad that we cannot be present, WE NEED TO TELL THIS TO OUR PARTNER. If they don’t know what is going on, they will react, escalate their frustration and the relationship suffers., HotDoodle™ Custom Web Design and Quality Affordable Website Designers for Small Businesses and Professionals
