I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have invested in education training as a graduate professor for the past 11 years, helping graduate students move efficiently through their education into their careers. In addition to currently serving as an adjunct faculty member for Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology, I also held the title of Lead Faculty and Faculty Advisor for the University of Phoenix, providing expertise in clinical supervision, assessment, and treatment planning.
I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from therapy for depression and grief counseling to deep family work, couples therapy, and beyond. I offer a holistic personalized approach, tailored to each client’s individual needs. Clinically, I work from an integrative/holistic perspective, which involves, cognitive-behavioral, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness–based therapies.

We rescued a seven-year-old coonhound last year. This hound was left in the streets and part of a puppy mill most of her life. After a year, we have built trust and surrounded her with the most loving of conditions. She has grown from a scared, timid, skeptical dog to a loving, confident, and calm animal.
