With over twenty years experience working in the mental health/human services field, and as a graduate of Pepperdine University School of Education and Psychology specializing in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy , I am currently serving as private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, grief and loss, trauma, relationship, pre-marital, divorce, family and couples issues.
In addition to helping my clients in my private practice, I teach undergraduate human service classes and graduate mental health counseling and marriage and family therapy classes through the University of Phoenix.

I offer psychodynamic, cognitive- behavioral, family systems and post-modern therapy to my clients. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
