Thank you for visiting my website. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, lmft 104411, and a certified addiction specialist, cadc-cas. I hold a master's degree in clinical psychology from pepperdine university, completed the ucla extension drug and alcohol counseling program, and have a bachelor's degree from miami of ohio. In addition, i completed a 2 year clinical internship at airport marina counseling services, the boys and girls club of venice, and a counseling internship at clare foundation in santa monica. I am extensively trained in dialetical behavioral therapy through marsha linehan's behavioral tech institute.
The process of developing true self awareness and authenticity is a choice. It comes from reflection and a sense of safety, which is the beauty of therapy. While i specialize in addiction and borderline personality disorder, I work with a variety of issues such as relationships and codependency, eating disorders, anxiety, and mood disorders. I see adolescents, adults, families, and couples, as well as offer group therapy and parent skills coaching.
