completed my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in 1977 and my Master
of Science Degree in Clinical & Community Psychology in 1986, both
at California State University, Fullerton.
I was licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC 24713)
in 1988, after completing 3000 hours of supervised counseling experience
and passing my licensing examination through the California Board
of Behavioral Science Examiners. I have been a Clinical Member In
Good Standing of the California Association of Marriage and Family
Therapists since 1990.
I have been serving the Southern California community as a private
practice therapist since 1986. For the last four years my office
has been located in Placentia, California. I provide individual,
couple and family therapy, covering a broad range of specialties,
including depression and anxiety, sexuality, sexual orientation
issues, crisis resolution for children and their families, and divorce
and custody mediation. I have been a qualified expert witness in
custody matters for the last ten years in Family Courts in Orange
and Los Angeles Counties.
In my personal life, I am the proud mother of a grown son. I
have spent the last eleven years in a committed relationship with
a wonderful man. My hobbies include reading, working out, traveling,
fine dining, drinking good wines, gardening and playing Hearts online.
