Where

I have been a licensed psychologist in the State of California for 12 years. I graduated from The Wright Institute with a Doctorate of Psychology (Psy.D.) in 2006. My areas of specialty include: anxiety and depression, career issues, LGBTQIA issues, relationship problems, self-esteem deficits, and helping you to realize and fulfill your greatest potential.

I implement effective psychotherapy methods from various theoretical orientations, depending on your individual needs. I understand and value how the therapeutic relationship promotes growth, healing, and lasting change. I encourage risk taking and new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix. Therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and deep investment from the patient and psychologist alike. In the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.
