Your Psychologist in Orange County

Building healthy relationships and a thriving future together!

Whether it’s individual therapy, couples counseling, or marriage counseling, I am ready and well prepared to partner with you on your path to change.  As a licensed clinical psychologist in Orange County, the top level of education and licensing available, and over 20 years of experience, you will be receiving some of the best help available for your situation.  With a holistic approach to your wellness, you can be assured that the mind, body, spirit and emotions will be taken into consideration and harnessed as you move you forward in powerful, balanced and sustainable change. Some of the areas of struggle addressed in therapy include:

I’m so glad you’re here and looking for help!  If you’re reading this, you’re already aware that you might like some help.  Regardless of your struggle, I’ve seen that lasting change is possible.  There is no need to silently struggling and fall back into the same old patterns that keep you stuck and feeling powerless.

Lasting change IS possible, and I have walked this journey with many.

Counseling & Therapy Services

I list the services I provide as separate areas of expertise.  I know that what is needed in my role as a marriage counselor will be different than how I approach couples counseling.  Then, of course, individual work will be an entirely separate skill set.  I would also consider therapy as different than counseling and encourage you to read more about this and see what it is you really need.

For more information on my approach to these and other areas of expertise, read more on the Services page and take some time to explore the rest of this website.  Consider also reading my article on what to consider in selecting a therapist that is going to be best for you.

Orange County Psychologist

As a licensed clinical psychologist in Orange County and the founder of The Relation Foundation, my joy is journeying along side people struggling with the difficulties of life and relationship and, together, working through the barriers that hinder them from the freedom, enthusiasm, excellence and passion in which they were meant to live.  Whether in couples counseling or individual therapy, I am dedicated to preparing you to thrive in life and this involves partnering with you relationally as well as providing you with an ever-growing list of resources, information and advice that you will find helpful in your process of growth and change.

Founder of The Relation Foundation

When establishing The Relation Foundation, I took time to pause and pull together the essence of what I believe healthy living entails. I found myself gravitating back toward three central pillars for a thriving life; work, love (relationship), and play (creativity). After over two decades of working with people in a variety of struggles, invariably one or more of these three areas are either out of balance or misguided. When I am able to help an individual or couple find their own unique purpose and balance points, the burdens lift and their full potential is unleashed.
