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
- 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.
