 Allow Me To Join You On Your Journey 


About Me

For more than 30 years, my career has focused on providing family, couple, and adult treatments for individuals experiencing various forms of trauma and emotional conditions. In addition to private practice, I have worked as a Staff Psychologist for the San Fernando Valley Child Guidance Clinic, and for Saint John's Child and Family Development Center. I have also worked as a clinical director of Advance Psychological Services, (a trauma-based treatment center) and as a consultant and clinical supervisor for the Village Family Services. 


Furthermore, I have served as a guest speaker on numerous panels in the areas of early trauma, family violence, parenting, cultural transition, cultural competency and have served as an expert witness for court trauma cases.

I am trained in Intensive Short-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

I am certified in anxiety disorders and have extensive training and experience in couples therapy.


I believe childhood experiences create templates for adult life. Early losses, separations, and trauma define the choices of strategies or defenses we use as adults. Pain and suffering can be caused by these early experiences. It is my job as a therapist to join my clients in their journey of discovery of these templates and help them to gain a more fulfilled life.


I provide individual, couples and family counseling services in both English and Spanish in a safe, comfortable environment. My approach is tailored to each client, to meet them on their journey of discovery to finding a more fulfilled life.
