Is fighting destroying your relationship?

Do you feel Under-Appreciated, and Un-Loved?

It is Time To Feel Better. Now.

It is time to stop walking on eggshells. In a relationship, sometimes no matter how hard you try, things feel out of control, and you do not know how to make yourself or anyone else feel happier.  We all struggle with relationships at times.

I want you to feel happier, better, and healthier- whether it is together, at work, with family or most importantly, with yourself.

specialize in people whose personal relationships have hit a crisis point.  I offer couple counseling, relationship counseling, family counseling, and individual counseling , depending on your personal set of needs and circumstances. I serve Newport Beach and the Orange County area, and am very close to Irvine and Costa Mesa.

You may be asking yourself any of the following questions :

  • Why do I always feel taken for granted, and not loved in my marriage or relationship?
  • Why are we fighting all of the time?
  • Why is my spouse so distant?
  • Will I ever feel better? I feel like I can’t go on.
  • Will our sex life ever be exciting again? We live like roommates!!!
  • I keep making the same mistakes over and over again. How am I going to change before I lose my spouse or partner for good?
  • I think about leaving my partner but I do not know what to do.

These are just a few of the concerns I hear from clients over and over again.

Whether it is the first time you have felt this way, or it has been years, things can get better, and needing help is not a weakness. Interpersonal relationships provide our lives with the richness and meaning we all need and desire. Invite yourself to have the life and relationship you were always meant to have.

I also provide free resources for anyone interested in marriage counseling, individual therapy, or information on depression, attachment, PTSD or other disorders.

Please browse my couples therapy blog (popular posts are listed to the right).

Even if you’re not ready for counseling, you can subscribe to my newsletter and receive monthly updates with helpful information related to healthy relationships and psychotherapy in general.


Every patient is a person, not a problem. Your situation is unique and cannot be solved with a cookie-cutter approach. I will take my expertise helping people work through their issues, and we will work together to understand your feelings and where you need to go. You don’t have to be alone – I will be available to you as the personal advocate for your mental health.


Listen to my recent interview on NPR’s “Air Talk” — KPCC 89.3 FM. The show included discussion of a recent study on digital infidelity, and whether “sexting” is more forgivable than physical cheating. Learn more.
