           I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  I am also a Certified Hypnotherapist.  My career in Psychology started 20 years ago at San Diego State University and then on to National University. I have been practicing for more than 10 years now.   My approach to sound effective therapy is combining Clinical Psychology Theory with a Holistic Philosophy of Mind, Body and Spirit....

          I think of therapy as a Beautiful, Spiritual, Existential  Journey into identifying your strengths and learning your true life's purpose.  I like to utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, in which I use the best techniques from a variety of theoretical approaches, some of which include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory and Positive Psychology.

          My style is gentle and supportive every step of the way.  You will feel the freedom to explore who you are and experiment with new ideas and behaviors in your life.  

                I have great respect for this work...And truthfully, I believe I am born to do this work.  I love what I do and I am so grateful for it...
