I have been in private counseling practice in Orange County since 1992, since I became licensed in California as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).  I obtained a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Chapman University in 1989.

Before entering private practice, I counseled patients for St. Joseph Hospital where I was honored with a Staff Values In Action Award (1989).  I am a lifetime member of Phi Beta Kappa and a clinical member of 3 professional organizations for Marriage and Family Therapists: AAMFT, CAMFT and OCCAMFT.
