My heart is rooted in understanding the minds and emotions of human beings and the practice of therapy affords me the opportunity to be of service while at the same time experiencing the humbling feelings of watching people change their lives.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. In addition to the mastery of general psychotherapy, I celebrate diversity and have a specialization in LGBTQ Affirmative Psychotherapy.
I began my clinical career at the Los Angeles LGBT Center, where I conducted individual, couples, and group therapy to address a range of issues including depression and anxiety, relationships issues, substance abuse and sexual addiction recovery, issues with self-esteem, as well as many others. During my tenure at The Center, I was also afforded the extraordinary experience of co-facilitating the outpatient Crystal Meth Recovery Group.
In following my passion to support those in need, I also provide my therapeutic services to at-risk youth as part of the Pacific Clinics - Portals Transitional-Aged-Youth program. At Portals, Iâ€™ve created and implemented specialty community programs, which now span the network of community clinics across Southern California. I remain active with this organization and continue to consult on those social programs.
In my practice, Iâ€™ve taken what Iâ€™ve learned from the field and carefully specialized in assisting clients to overcome anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, painful relationship patterns, career related challenges, love and sex addiction, pornography addiction, and issues with intimacy. In addition, my background and education affords me an experienced perspective to service the unique needs of the LGBTQ and recovery communities.
