I am a psychotherapist, licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) by the State of California.  The MFT license is recognized nationally.

In my practice I do individual and couples therapy, specializing in three areas:  relationships, arts and entertainment, and addictions recovery. 

I have extensive experience helping people recover from “love addiction,” and avoidance of intimacy.

Prior to opening my practice I was a Family Therapist in both outpatient and inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation facilities in Los Angeles, California.

I studied at the University of California, Berkeley, and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from The University of California, San Diego.  I received my Master’s Degree in Psychology from Notre Dame de Namur University, California.
