I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #MFC53401. My educational background includes a Masters in Pre and Perinatal Psychology from the Santa Barbara Graduate Institute and a Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology from the University of Michigan.
In addition to my private practice work, I also have over 10 years of experience conducting parent educational and therapeutic groups to help provide high needs families with child development education and information through Providence St. John’s Helen Reid Parenting Program. I have also worked collaboratively with other health care professionals including lecturing with former Cornell Professor Dr. James Mass on the relationship between sleep and performance as well as workshops on healthy relationships for pre-teen and teenage girls.
Being a kid in today’s world can be tough and helping your little one navigate through the struggles and hardships as a parent, can sometimes feel overwhelming. That’s where I come in. As a licensed therapist with over 6 years of private practice experience, I specialize in child and adolescent behaviors, parenting skills, and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. I have a passion for helping children and parents realize their full potential by educating and working with them on issues that may be holding them back.
