I have extensive experience working with families of children and adolescents that exhibit emotional and behavioral disturbances, including the treatment of ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety, Academic Underachievement, OCD, Depression, interpersonal relationship issues, gaming/internet addiction, entitlement, low self-esteem and Oppositional Defiance Disorder(ODD). I emphasize using evidence-based methods that have scientific backing in working with children, adolescents, and adults. I engage in a collaborative process with my clients in which a variety of assessment, intervention, psychoeducation, and consultation services are utilized to treat people with dignity and respect to their values and belief system.

I am a Cognitive-Behavioral Psychologist and I have a Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology as well as a Master's degree in Counseling, both from Arizona State University. Besides running groups for children, adolescents and young men I offer individual and family therapy.

I've coached my 4 children in soccer, football, and basketball. I believe parenting is the most important business in the world and one of the best things we can do for our children is improve our co-parenting relationship. Our ultimate responsibility as parents is to teach our children how the real world works.
