South Bay Relational Counseling

The purpose of couples therapy is to restore a better level of functioning in couples who experience relationship distress. The intensity of an intimate relationship creates a space where an individual as well as the couple can experience optimal growth. Therapy can enhance the inner growth of the individual as well work to heal the couple.

Sex therapy views sexual issues as being resolved by specifically addressing them, rather than by the assumption that when the individuals in a relationship work out the relationship issues, the sex will just fall into place.

Compulsive engagement with porn or sex is most often a coping mechanism that can gradually become an addiction. It is possible to transition from addiction and enjoy healthy sexuality.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  

My Approach

Through my years of working with individuals and couples I have become confident that it is possible to make significant changes in your life. If you can show up and do the work you will look back at this time and know that this was your turning point. 

Please contact me and we can set up a 10 minute consultation to decide if we are a good match for each other. I can be reached at or call me at 408-502-1687.

About me

It would be fair to call my approach to life as eclectic. I am always reading and studying, searching for the keys of what make us humans tick. I have trained in many modalities and theories and all of this serves me and my clients giving me a powerful tool box to draw from.


I am currently seeing clients through teletherapy. Although some feel that this format has limitations I have found that it is an effective form of doing therapy and has some advantages that meeting face to face does not. We can meet using Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. If you have concerns we can go over this during our consultation.


To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To dare not is to lose oneself.
