I completed my undergraduate coursework at Georgetown University. I went on to receive a Masters and Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology.
I am licensed as a Clinical Psychologist by the California State Board of Psychology (lic. # PSY24570). I see clients in my private practice located in Hermosa Beach, CA.
I previously provided therapeutic services to clients at Southern California Counseling Center and at The Saturday Center for Psychotherapy. In these locations I worked with an incredibly diverse range of clients, including children, teens, adult, couples, and families. My experience as a therapist at AIDS Project Los Angeles allowed me to cultivate my skills in treating mental health struggles related to chronic illness, sexual identity, and substance abuse disorders as well as a number of other clinical issues.
I conducted a qualitative study involving gay fathers and their children as part of my coursework at Georgetown University. I have also been involved in a research study exploring the impact of the Los Angeles Unified School District’s health education courses on adolescents’ knowledge of sexual health issues. The study also examined the role of health education in helping to prevent bullying, harassment, and victimization of at-risk high school students.
I am a member of various professional organizations, including the American Psychological Association, the California Psychological Association, and the Los Angeles County Psychological Association.
