The first step towards improving your life is to ask for help.

I am a licensed psychologist in the State of California (PSY24268). I provide treatment to adults of various cultural, ethnic, professional and personal backgrounds. My approach is integrative and I generally employ cognitive-behavioral strategies, psychodynamic strategies, or a combination. I utilize empirically supported techniques and treatments to get results that work!. My treatment approach is based on your needs—I do not subscribe to a one-size-fits-all-approach. This allows us to work collaboratively to develop a program specific to your needs.

In addition to my private practice, I am an adjunct professor in the psychology doctoral program at Ryokan College and Executive Vice President of California Mind Institute (CMI), a certified on-line training program for California Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC). I have previously been an instructor for the El Camino, Mira Costa and Riverside Community Colleges' Drug and Alcohol Counselor Training (CAADAC) programs.
