By using a collaborative approach, I help my clients deepen their self-awareness and live more authentic lives. Our client-centered sessions promote personal growth and help people develop a greater love for themselves and for others. My particular areas of expertise include:

  • relationship problems
  • stress
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • lack of confidence
  • low self-esteem
  • fear of public speaking
  • test anxiety
  • eating concerns
  • issues related to sexual orientation and gender
  • substance abuse
  • animal-related concerns (i.e., grief over the loss of a pet)

For a period of fourteen years, I worked as a college professor, lecturer and instructor. The universities I taught for include: Harvard University (co-instructor), UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and Pepperdine University, among others.
 

In addition to my work as a psychologist, I have been involved with several wildlife organizations for over a decade. Specifically, I worked as a volunteer handler and educator of owls at a rescue, rehabilitation and release center.
