Philosophy and Approach: I believe that people fundamentally seek positive relationships; the difficulty arises in re-enacting dysfunctional relationships handed down generationally. I practice using several empirically tested techniques with a strong emphasis on Bowen’s: Multigenerational Transmission Process. I feel that understanding yourself in relation to other people, how you affect others and they affect you, leads to better communication and less turbulent relationships.

My current focus: Acute and Developmental Trauma, EFT, EMDR trained therapist, Formal Education and Training: I hold a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from California State University, Bakersfield. Major Coursework included: Multi-dimensional approaches to individual, couples, group and family counseling; Cultural diversity; Substance Abuse; Domestic Violence; Trauma; Psychopharmacology; Legal and Ethical issues; Child and Adult Development. Also included, intense clinical training and supervision in all aspects of counseling.

My experience is wide ranging; I have worked with the adult prison population, juvenile justice adolescent and family, children from k-12 in school settings, seriously and persistently mentally ill (SPMI) clients and their families, and extensive crisis experience. I am also a registered supervisor for Masters level interns getting hours toward licensure.

Treating: Individuals, couples, families, adult and children
