By using a collaborative approach, I help clients deepen their self-awareness and live more authentically. My client-centered sessions help people develop a greater love for themselves and others. 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 volunteered for wildlife organizations for over a decade. Specifically, I worked as a volunteer handler/educator of owls at a rescue, rehabilitation and release center. The owls I worked with could not survive in the natural environment. Currently, I am a volunteer transporter of wild animals for a local organization.
