Cross-cultural counseling and research is my life's work. As a family-therapist/educator in the field of multicultural counseling I have the ability to see each client's cultural-context in various stages of life-cycle. My research on cross-cultural couple's adjustment and acculturation has been published in professional psychology journals and presented at international conferences. My approach is strength-based and collaborative, utilizing evidence-based practice and research. Aside from my private practice I serve as a cross-cultural consultant for medical professionals and agencies. I have been teaching and presenting on cross-cultural issues in the last 15 years.
I am specialized in working with cultural diversity issues, cross- cultural couples & families and relational difficulties stemming from cultural differences. Clients with "Bicultural" , "multicultural", "bi-racial", "multiracial" identities and the GLBT often seek professionals with expertise in understanding their reality & experiences. I am honored to provide services to diverse clients who identify as such,
Holds clinical Licenses in 2 states CA & MO. Was in private practice in California for 9 years. Received Ph.D from Saint Louis University; practiced as a Multicultural Therapist at the International Institute serving diverse clients & nationalities. Visiting scholar & published researcher at UC-Davis for 6 years. Taught at Alliant International University Graduate School.

What you Didn't Expect.....

This group is designed to support first time mothers. One of the unique things about this group is we welcome moms to bring their infants with them. Having a place to share what they are experiencing can help them feel validated and not alone in the challenges we experience as first time moms. Finding a place that feels supportive and safe can be such a gift during such a transformative time of our lives. Please call to see if this group sounds inviting to you.
