As a Psychotherapist, I am passionate about supporting my clients in finding balance and ease in all aspects of their lives. I am knowledgable, compassionate, and honoring of my clients’ unique experiences. I work with individuals of all ages to help them identify and address obstacles that prevent them from engaging in life more fully.
The focus of my work with clients is to address past and present problems, to eliminate what is no longer useful, and to focus on all that is promising and possible.
I bring to my practice extensive experience as a psychotherapist, college professor, and school counselor. I completed my graduate work in Integral Counseling Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and my EMDR training from the Sonoma Psychotherapy Institute.
I am a Certified EMDR Therapist, an EMRIA Approved Consultant and Trainer, and founding Director of the EMDR Education and Training Center. I am licensed by the California Board of Behavior Sciences as a Marriage and Family Therapist, and am also a member of the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA), the Riverside County Trauma Response Network (TRN), and the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT). I offer psychotherapy services and EMDR therapy in both Spanish and English.
