Licensed Psychotherapist in Newport Beach, CA #126826

People should not be defined by their situational problems, their past, their family or their diagnosis. Don’t miss out on life because your talents, creativity, joy and life force are being held captive by suffering or maladaptive beliefs.

Working with me means working together in a respectful partnership. We will create a new, dynamic space for possibilities that can be life-changing!

It is a privilege to share in your journey.

I have spent more than 20 years assisting Fortune 500 companies as a management and communications advocate helping cross-functional groups identify needs, collaborate and reach common goals. I became a therapist to follow my passion of helping people live more efficient and fulfilled lives.

I hold a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University and a bachelor’s degree in business management. I am certified in grief and bereavement counseling and have spent time as a hospice volunteer. I am a current member of the following industry organizations: American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT), California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT), American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT), Spiritual Emergence Network (SEN), International Honor Society in Psychology (PSI CHI).

I work with diverse cultures and have extensive experience with eastern and western spiritual practices, faiths, modalities and rituals. I hold sacred and respect all orientations.

Let’s start a productive therapeutic alliance so that you can live, think, feel and behave in ways that are more peaceful, joyful, enlightened and caring – not just for you but for those you love.

Let’s talk!
