I bring the utmost respect and compassion to my work.  

My only agenda is my commitment to you being free from confusion and achieving the clarity you seek so you can experience peace, calm, healing and growth.
Parenthood Clarity Mentor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Author

Working with courageous people who are willing to dive deep into discovering their truth is rewarding beyond words! This has been my passion for 30 years, and that passion continues to increase.

I have a special ability to help you get rid of self-limiting beliefs and rigid patterns, expand your capacity to think outside the box, resolve your own internal challenges, and discover your true desire about whether you want to become a mother.

In 1991, Marriage and Family Therapist Denise L. Carlini and I co-created the program, Motherhood-Is it for me?™. We wanted to help women who were experiencing ambivalence about motherhood as there was nowhere these women could go without feeling shame or being judged. We led support groups together for 10 years before I started working with women and men individually. We published our book Motherhood — Is It For Me? Your Step-by-Step Guide to Clarity in 2016 so everyone can have access to this one of a kind program.


After running small groups in my office, the natural evolution was to begin offering groups online. I created the Motherhood Clarity Course and the Fatherhood Clarity Course to reach women and men in any timezone who feel alone and stuck.

I received my graduate degree from San Francisco State University. I’m a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT). I maintain a successful private psychotherapy practice in the San Francisco Bay area.

Clarity Course

As you think deeply about
whether to become a mother, it can be hard to figure out what you actually want — especially when there are so many voices telling you what you should want. You’re not alone.

The good news is, there is a way to decide...


Clarity Course

Not being able to decide if you want to be a father is more complex than your external circumstances.

Whether you’re single or partnered, you can experience a deeper understanding of your inner process and take the next step that’s right for you...


Clarity Course

The Private Clarity Course is perfect for women or men who prefer the privacy of working one-on-one, as well as flexible scheduling. Sessions include 12 private sessions by phone or Zoom along with course materials, exercises, and more.
