I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC #685) and a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT #53687) in private practice in Orinda, CA. I gladly work with individuals and couples on a wide variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, and relational difficulties. 

My additional graduate work in theology and background in pastoral ministry speaks to one of my specialties, using a spiritual lens to view and treat relational problems. I have served as an adjunct faculty member at Cal Poly State University, Holy Names University, and Fuller Theological Seminary.
