About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Northern California with 30 years of experience working with couples. Using client-centered and intentional communication strategies, I have worked with couples successfully to examine how each partner's relationship-to-self impacts on the health of the relationship and the larger family system.

Change in a relationship can be difficult, and you are taking an important step by reaching out for support. I am going to work with you to develop a common path toward positive change. Our time together will honor who you are as individuals and a couple while targeting the challenging areas of your shared life. I will treat you both with respect, warmth and compassion as we focus on your negative thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and communication styles. We will come up with agreed-upon objectives to form the plan that leads you toward a more satisfying life.

I look forward to connecting with you both.

David is a fantastic listener and counselor. He helped me navigate a tough time in my personal relationship and offered a number of tools and perspective to get me back on track. I highly recommend his service.

I really appreciate David, he’s really helped open my eyes and not just look at my partner but the things I need to do within myself.
