I received my B.A. degree in Psychology from UCLA; my M.A. degree in Counseling Psychology from Pepperdine University, and my PhD (ABD) in International Psychology with a concentration in Trauma Response from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.

Currently, I'm working on a PhD in Psychology with a concentration in Mental Health Policy and Practice at Northcentral University. I have been licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 1996 (LMFT 33119).

Previously, I worked for UCLA's Career Counseling Center as a Psychometrist, and as a social worker for the Department of Children and Family Services. Additionally, I worked as a Children's Mental Health Clinician for San Diego County Children's Mental Health.

Following my work with children, I conducted Psychiatric Evaluations for the Emergency Department at Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, and at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center as an Emergency Department Patient Liaison/Analyst.

I have also maintained a private practice since 1996, previously in Laguna Hills, CA and have been practicing in Temecula since 2004. I specialize in marriage/couple therapy, family therapy, anger management, trauma, self-harm in teens, and parenting. Evening & weekend appointments are available.

**I work from my home office and currently offer in-person outdoor sessions on my front and back patios due to COVID-19.
