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 would love to come give a talk to your group, organization, business, school or university on any of these topics:
• This is Your Brain on Marriage
• How to Bombproof Your Marriage
• Declaration of Inter-Dependence
• I Want Intimacy and It Scares Me
• Intimacy and Sex; Getting What You Want
• In-Laws/Outlaws; Managing Extended Family
• Power: Who Has It?
• Your Career: Would You Move with Your Partner’s Job?
I can also talk about other topics as we agree on.
I am happy to come give a talk to whatever group or organization you belong to, e.g.:
• Women’s groups
• Mom’s groups
• Men’s groups
• Nurses groups
• Companies of all sizes
• Schools and Universities
• Business and civic groups
• Professional associations
I provide interactive presentations that engage the audience (and also let people opt out of participation). I am good at handling groups and large audiences, and keeping the talk on track. I encourage questions, yet don’t let them de-rail the talk. When questions are too narrow, I broaden them to the general audience. My goal is both to disseminate pertinent information and to have people leave thinking a little differently about the topic.
Whatever honorarium you normally provide, I will donate back to your organization or to a charity of your choice.
For a comprehensive list of talks I’ve previously given, see www.connect2.us.com/about/speaking. To contact me, please email [email protected]
