I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Film and Television Production from Loyola Marymount University, working as a cameraman for some time. After a few years of exploring the creativity and talent of cinematographers, directors, and actors in the film industry, I decided to continue my education to further explore the complexities of the human psyche. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from California Lutheran University. I have come to realize that we all express our needs and inner demons in several ways, whether channeling and projecting our emotions onto a scripted movie character – as actors do so well, or absorbing others’ emotions at the expense of the Self, we all find ourselves collectively suffering. I feel honored to traverse life’s complexity, darkness, and pain with my patients in search of meaningful insight and clarity.
I treat a wide range of psychopathology with a particular interest in the treatment of personality disorders, psychotic disorders, and dissociative disorders.
I have worked with an extensive array of clinical populations, including psychotic disorders and severe mental illness, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, OCD, addiction, eating disorders, dissociative disorders, developmental disorders, autism, learning disabilities, death and loss, trauma, gender dysphoria, ADHD, and personality disorders. Just to name a few.
I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, families, and groups in multiple settings. I have experience within school districts, outpatient mental health clinics, psychoanalytic clinics, group homes, and county facilities. I was also on staff at Roundtable Counseling, an intensive outpatient facility for individuals stepping down from psychiatric hospitalization. I currently work solely in my private practice located in Westlake Village, California.
