About Me

Welcome to my profile page! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of experience in private practice. I graduated from Cal State East Bay with a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology. I chose Marriage and Family Therapy and Career and Adult Development as my specialty areas of emphasis. My under graduate degree is from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

Since earning my degree, I have worked with individual adults, teens, and families. While gaining experience by working in a variety of settings, I developed a deep passion for youth. I continued to work with teens and families in the nonprofit sector and private practice settings throughout my career. I use CBT along with Solution Focus and Family Systems Therapy to help you gain insight and understanding with regard to adjustment issues, mental health, and relationship struggles.

My counseling style is direct, supportive and action oriented. I believe in humankind and a person’s ability to create a contented life even through adversity. Conflicts are inherent and can be used as stepping stones toward achieving self-awareness. Solid family relationships require a great deal of patience which can be difficult when behavioral issues dominate the environment.

When I chose to become a therapist, I didn’t just choose a career, I chose a lifestyle. I am committed to healthy choices, mentally and physically. I believe that every human being is unique and deserves to have a quality life and fulfilling interpersonal relationships. I look forward to guiding you and your family in this journey of self-discovery and healing.

She seems to be helping my daughter, but I know it takes time. She's very observant, and I appreciate her straightforwardness.

Amazing! She remembers every detail you tell her. She helps make you feel comfortable. Is always so uplifting and no matter how you feel about therapy she finds a way to make you feel proud of yourself for doing the little things. So sweet and accepting, makes you feel validated. Only had her for about two months and I already saw improvement before I had to quit therapy due to price reasons. Very safe space! Highly recommend.

Deloy is great! She’s super easy to talk to and I feel supported and accepted when talking with her. I feel like she really allows for space to think and reflect, and helps me create strategies to follow through with my goals.
