My background

I received a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology, Marriage and Family Therapy emphasis, from Phillips Graduate Institute, spring 2012. Since April 2011 I have been interning at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center, where I've had the opportunity to conduct individual sessions, work with couples, as well as co-facilitate and lead therapy groups.

I have specialized training, certification and experience in the area of LGBT domestic violence assessment and treatment.

I have experience working with clients whose issues include:
mood problems (major depression, dysthymia, bi-polar disorder) 
anxiety 
LGBTQ issues 
trauma recovery 
personality problems
addiction / alcohol problems 
sexual compulsivity / intimacy issues 
partner relational problems  
phase of life problems 
domestic violence 
identity problems

I specialize in the treatment of intellectually and creatively gifted individuals.

My way of being with clients is non-judgmental, non-pathologizing and respectful. Therapy can be long-term or brief, depending on the needs and preferences of the client.
