My approach to treatment utilizes interpersonal neurobiology in concert with other proven therapeutic modalities, such as
therapy, brainspotting, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), and strength-based treatment.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) with certification from the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Sociology, concentrating in Conversational Analysis, I earned my Master's in Social Work from USC, concentrating in Business and Social Work in Global Communities. Prior to becoming Clinical Director at Center for Sexual Integrity, I served as the Associate Clinical Director at Center for Healthy Sex, working closely with one of the most respected authorities in the field, Dr. Alexandra Katehakis.
