I have been a practicing psychotherapist for more than two decades. In addition to being a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (mfc21166), I am also a certified Hypnotherapist. I am certified in ECC (Emotional Clearing Complex), which is a system using muscle testing for clearing emotional issues, as well as in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which is a system designed to reduce trauma and post traumatic stress disorder.
My work has been focused in part on my private practice, while also devoting time to being involved in community mental health as well. I have worked as the Clinical Director of San Fernando Counseling Center (which provides low fee mental health to the community); and as an AAMFT Approved Supervisor I have been supervising interns, trainees and licensed therapists for the past twenty years.
I have been a Parenting Class instructor, as well as a group leader for a “People in Transition” support group.
