"I specialize in Clinical Forensic Psychology. My clients have been criminal attorneys, Superior courts, and the State of CA. I have been hired by these clients to provide forensic assessments of criminal offenders. Typically, the referral need/goal of my clients has been to identify areas of need and recommendation for treatment in consideration of parole, Probation, or sentencing. I have provided individual and group treatment of offenders in community mental health, and in State prison facilities. My forensic background helped me identify that first responders are also an underserved population needing treatment attention. "

These wounds show up in their lives as depression, anxiety, low-self-esteem and unhealthy relationships. In therapy, you can become aware of those wound and how they limit your life today, grieve your losses and learn healthier ways to get those childhood needs met. As this healing occurs, we can explore ways to live life more fully and joyfully and to thrive rather than just survive."
