Since becoming licensed as a clinical psychologist in 1999, I have gained experience through my work as well as life. Early in my career, I developed a particular interest in working with adult individuals and couples. To pursue this, I attended intensive workshops with both Dr. David Schnarch and Dr. Sue Johnson to further hone my skills as a couples counselor, as well as to better understand the complex challenges in all relationships and facilitate better communication. In addition to working in private practice, I worked at Cedars-Sinai for ten years on the inpatient psychiatric hospital units working with clients in crisis as they struggled with addiction, trauma, suicidal ideation, eating disorders, mood disorders and chronic mental illness. In 2005, I opened the Family Resource Counseling Center where I held the position as Director working with interns and supervisors to provide counseling to individuals, couples and families in a group practice. In 2015, I moved into solo private practice to focus my attention more closely on my clients and their needs, pursue my own passions, as well as devote more time to my family.
