About This Therapist

Therapy is a unique process where the focus is on you. I strongly believe that therapy should provide you with a place to authentically express yourself and meet your individualized needs. It is my task to create an accepting, warm and collaborative setting where you will feel safe to be seen and heard.


After 15 years of a successful career as a CPA and financial recruiter, I felt a need to find work in a setting where I could help make a direct, positive impact on the everyday lives of other people in the community.  As a result, I went back to school and earned an MA in Counseling Psychology with the goal of becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist.  I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents and adults on a range of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief.


I utilize a client-centered, strengths-based approach with all clients.  The end goal is to help them  unlock their own resources as well as help them to develop new skills to deal effectively with their specific life situation via increasing self-awareness and improving relationships with family, friends, and colleagues.


I appreciate the courage it takes to consider working with a new therapist and to reach out and make that first phone call. I welcome speaking with you to help you determine if we are a good fit to work together towards your healing and growth.


Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the Wright Institute. Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from the University of California at Los Angeles.
