M. Div, LMFT
I am passionate about relationships. I believe they hold the key to our health and wellbeing. Relationships define us and we define them. Through the years, I have received training, experience and education as a relationship expert both in the United States and in Europe. I received M. Div from the University of Iceland and served as a minister for 10 years. I received M.A. in Psychology from Azusa Pacific University in 2012 and became licensed in the State of CA. In 2015 I opened my private practice in SCV and in 2020 I founded Saga Mental Health and Relationship Centers. I have received training in relational psychoanalysis, existential philosophy, and EMDR. EMDR is an effective and powerful psychotherapy technique for people who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic, disturbing memories.
