Counseling to reduce stress, anger, conflict

 Welcome! And thanks for checking out my website & blog.

Are your stress, anger & conflict keeping you stuck?

Get help with anger, conflict, and stress reduction.

Need a hand up? Let’s talk to see how I can help… 

Are you successful at work, but still feeling alone & isolated?

Is your world changing so fast you can’t keep up?

At work, at home – things are different now?

Are your family conversations way too difficult?

Is your sobriety at risk and you need a bit of help?

Maybe you feel as though no one could ever understand?

For 25+ years,
 I’ve helped professionals, individuals, and families communicate more effectively, to reduce the anger, stress, and conflict life hands all of us at times.  I do understand, and I know that change is possible. 

I also know that sometimes anger arises out of frustration: when you don’t know how to get your needs met, when communication hits a dead end…..  well…. if that’s happening to you, then read on to learn how to get the help you might need ……

Please take some time to look around this site. If anything I’ve said here interests you, and if you have some questions or need more information, I invite you to give me a call to find out how I can help you:  310 475-1759.

If even one of these concerns hits home, this might be just the right time for you to reach out for some help:

People you respect and care about are urging you to get some help with your anger…..

Your family or work relationships are suffering and you don’t know what to do or say to make things better…..

Maybe you’re struggling to stay sober in recovery, and that new life has been a challenge…..


Perhaps you’ve been thinking about seeing a therapist, but keep putting it off….. I know how hard it can be to make that call. I also know that just making that first contact can help you start feeling better – just because you made the decision to get the help you’ve been needing!

Be sure to visit my blog, on this site, if you’d like to know more about my thoughts on communication, conflict, stress, and anger management.


Emotional well-being is determined not so much by what
happens to you, but by how you respond to what happens!

The ability to communicate effectively can positively impact
most areas of your day-to-day life.

With individual and/or family therapy, I can help you improve your professional and personal interactions, cope with anger and stress, and figure out why some parts of your life just don’t seem to work right.


If stress, anger, conflict are getting in your way, I can help!

A way out is just ahead!

If your life is changing too quickly, if you don’t know how to communicate about those changes, if it seems like you’ll feel this way forever, I can help. Together, we can find that light at the end of the tunnel……
