I am a licensed psychologist and a licensed marriage family therapist in California. Over span of almost 30 years, I have worked in community mental health both in inpatient and outpatient settings. My work history also includes experience in correctional and forensic settings. Currently, I am exclusively working with an outpatient medical group providing individual psychotherapy to adults and children. I have worked with clients both adults and children with wide ranging issues including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, legal issues, schizophrenia, delusional disorder, ADHD and marital issues.
My therapy style is based on client center and humanistic principals respecting and upholding individual values and diversity. I utilize psychodynamic paradigms to establish my case formulation. I approach client’s treatment by using cognitive behavior therapy, psychodynamic integration, rational emotive therapy, and individualize treatment plan to address client’s needs and goals. I further utilize a collaborative approach to measure effectiveness of treatment and client’s progress.
Recognizing and seeking mental health treatment is challenging and takes courage. I acknowledge and respect the fact that one may feel vulnerable in seeking comfort and healing in one’s life. I approach everyone with respect, sensitivity, warmth, empathy and compassion. I am known to be warm, caring, and respectful.
When ready or contemplating someone to work with you to walk a path of healing please contact me. I look forward to walking this journey with you.
