About this blog: About this blog: I am a LMFT specializing in couples counseling and grief and have lived in Silicon Valley since 1969. I'm the president of Connect2 Marriage Counseling. I worked in high-tech at Apple, Stanford University, and in Silicon Valley for 15 years before becoming a therapist. My background in high-tech is helpful in understanding local couples' dynamics and the pressures of living here. I am a wife, mom, sister, friend, author, and lifelong advocate for causes I believe in (such as marriage equality). My parents are both deceased. My son graduated culinary school and is heading toward a degree in Sociology. I enjoy reading, hiking, water fitness, movies, 49ers and Stanford football, Giants baseball, and riding a tandem bike with my husband. I love the beach and mountains; nature is my place of restoration. In my work with couples, and in this blog, I combine knowledge from many fields to bring you my best ideas, tips, tools and skills, plus book and movie reviews, and musings to help you be your genuine self, find your own voice, and have a happy and healthy relationship. Don't be surprised to hear about brain research and business skills, self-soothing techniques from all walks of life, suggestions and experiments, and anything that lights my passion for couples.

I reflect on the process of therapy that I have been honored to have gone through with my clients each year. Therapy is a difficult and at times, exhausting process. The effort and energy it takes to look honestly at yourselves, and to communicate that to your partner is phenomenal. It’s also an amazing gift to witness the healing . . . and to be a part of the healing.
I appreciate the trust put in my hands by my clients, and I strive to provide an environment where you can feel comfortable enough to allow your authentic self to emerge.
As we enter spring, a time of renewal, I want to thank my clients for who you are: I enjoy each and every one of you. I am awed by who you are, and by the work you do. To those who will become my clients in the years to come, I welcome you and look forward to knowing you deeply.
