For 20 years now I have been helping individuals, couples & families overcome challenges and live the lives they were created for by working through issues of depression, anxiety, OCD, eating disorders, substance abuse, trauma, etc. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California and am also licensed in Arizona as an (LPC) Licensed Professional Counselor and a (LMFT) Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. Also, I am a Certified Life Coach through the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and have training as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP). This certification uniquely equips me to help you resolve trauma in a gentle and effective way. I have also worked at the world renowned Remuda Ranch, an incredibly effective program for girls/women struggling with eating disorders, and later served as Clinical Supervisor at another highly effective residential treatment program; this one, A Sober Way Home, focused on substance abuse and was featured on such television shows as Intervention and Oprah. As a Christian who works with people of all faiths, I feel blessed and honored to come alongside you as you face the challenges of this life. I am confident that you will feel safe and valued in the special space we will create to help you heal and grow.
