I have been trained and licensed in the state of California, and in my 20+ years working as a California Licensed Psychologist, I have successfully worked with children, adults, veterans, developmentally disabled individuals. In providing the initial assessment and therapy, my goals are to work collaboratively with the individual in order to develop a treatment plan that is uniquely suited to the individual and their goals. This is vital in order to work through the barriers and traumas and move forward to a significant symptom reduction, personal growth and self-actualization.

From a young age, I often found myself in the role of a counselor helping my friends navigate life’s problems, and struggles. As I got older, I followed the path more formally by going to college and getting my license.
I enjoy traveling and prefer to explore new places and cultures without organized tours. Also, I enjoy skiing and I'm learning how to play golf.
I enjoy various types of art mediums, as the process helps me to express emotions and improve well-being. This is one area where “the result” can usually be held, touched and otherwise shared outside of one’s own mind.
