About

I am a graduate of the University of California, Irvine and Boston University. I have 20 years of experience working in both the private and public sectors. I am experienced in working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. I have done extensive work with the developmentally disabled and their families. I have spent several years helping those with chronic and terminal illness, as well with their families to help better deal with their special needs. I have had extensive experience teaching others in my field about child/elder abuse, domestic violence, and cognitive behavioral treatment modalities.
My professional strengths are in my ability to deal effectively with relationships within families, between couples, and with an individual's internal struggles. My level of compassion, empathy and support have helped change for the better the lives of those I have counseled.
During my 20 years in practice I had dealt with literally hundreds of patients and their loved ones to help them better resolve the issues that have caused unrest and dissatisfaction in their relationships and their lives.
