I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California and have a Doctorate in Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I hold a Certificate in Chemical Dependency and work with people and their families struggling with addictions and codependency. I am also a State of California Trained Problem Gambling Treatment Services Provider. As such, I can offer services at my office for problem gamblers and their families at no cost to them as part of their participation in the California Problem Gambling Treatment Services Program.
I am an AACAST Certified therapist and completed my training in Couples and Sex Therapy through AACAST. I use this training to provide services to individuals and couples around issues of sexuality in my private practice office. I also assist people with blended family concerns, divorce and separation problems, as well as premarital topics and counseling. I hold a Certificate in Interactive Guided Imagery and work with a broad spectrum of persons dealing with stress management and family of origin issues as well as adolescent concerns.
My therapeutic approach is to provide support, insight, and plan goals to help clients address challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach. I am a caring professional with superior communication skills and employ compassion and understanding as I work with each individual to help build on their strengths to attain the personal growth for which they are striving. I am easy to talk to and can use humor, when appropriate, to help guide the process.
