Cozy up, swap stories, and let the crackling fire set the stage for a night filled with warmth and laughter.

Art and Wine Walk

Who said artsy couldn’t be sassy? Stroll hand-in-hand through the Art and Wine Walk in the heart of Carlsbad. Sip on local wines, admire vibrant artworks, and let the creative vibes set the tone for a night full of intellectual conversations and perhaps a snazzy painting session for the two of you.

Picnic on the Beach

Just because we’re moving into the chillier days of fall doesn’t mean we can’t take a trip to the beach. Whether it’s enjoying the sun or sitting under the stars, this is one of those dates that just doesn’t get old. Pack a blanket (maybe an extra one to cuddle up in at night), some easy to eat food like a homemade charcuterie board, a bottle of wine, and get ready to relax and reconnect.

Farmer’s Market

Farmer’s markets can be a great date day! Walk around the local vendors during the day and put together your date night from there. Grab some bath salts for a spa night or some food for that beach picnic. For first dates, seeing all the unique items is a great way to keep the conversation flowing.

Paint Night

Get creative and go to one of the Paint Night’s offered around town (like at Paint Nite). Or grab some supplies from your local art store and either paint whatever comes to mind, or watch Bob Ross at home!

Cooking Class

Book a class at Sur la Table, day and night options available, and enhance your skills in the kitchen. On a budget? Do it yourself at home. There are plenty of TV shows and youtube channels with an array of skill levels.

Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Get active! Enjoy the sun and San Diego weather by stand-up paddleboarding. Getting some exercise has the added bonus of releasing endorphins! These trigger a positive feelings, helping insure your date is great.

It’s been nearly 20 years since I first became interested in studying psychotherapy. I began practicing the scientific approaches to psychotherapy in 1997 and I was hooked from then on.

I earned my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family psychotherapy in 2004 and I am currently licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist MFT (LMFT#47653) with the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS).

I focus my practice upon the empirically-based and proven research methods of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

I’ve seen these techniques consistently get results and I truly believe they are the most effective at creating positive, long-term change.
