my education & training
I received my Bachelors of Arts in Communications from University of Washington. My undergraduate work led to a decade of compelling work in human behavior research in the corporate trend sector. Ultimately I was called back to the academic arena and received my Master's in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University.
The majority of my professional training has been done at Manhattan Beach Community Counseling Center. Working in community mental health afforded me countless opportunities to work with a varied population including children, adolescents, adults, couples and families with a range of presenting challenges such as depression, anxiety, divorce, relational struggles, infidelity, disordered eating, impulse control, codependency, and loss/grief. My passions lie in working with women, adolescent girls and families.
I am a current member of the following organizations:
American Psychological Association
California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists
Psi Chi: The International Honor Society in Psychology
