About the Psychotherapist:

In 1993, I received a Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. I began practice as a Marriage, Family Therapist in Los Angeles. In 2004 I moved my practice to Folsom, CA. I am experienced in a diverse group of populations, and diagnoses, highlighted below. I treat adults, couples, and families. Theoretically I am influenced by attachment theory.  I am also a practitioner of Mindfulness Meditation.


I have been active in the ‘recovery community’ since 1986. I like helping people with substance abuse problems, and also provides treatment to the families affected by substance abuse, which includes co-dependent, addiction recovery, and sexual abuse. I have a long history of helping women and men recover from destructive and abusive relationships. My education has continued and includes multiple course work in the assessment, and treatment of substance abuse and often employs community resources while working with substance abuse issues.


In 2005 I received a Certificate in Play Therapy from JFK University at Pleasant Hill, CA. My office treats children as young as 14 years old. I have been trained in many empirically based treatment modalities for children, including training with the association of TheraPlay® Institute in Chicago, IL. [www.theraplay.org] TheraPlay® is an attachment based form of child therapy, which works well in asperger’s, adoption, divorce, drug addicted persons. I also have long experience working with severely emotionally disturbed children and children in foster care.


I have a strong grounding in couples and family therapy. I treat all couple’s relationships, with issues like infidelity, financial problems, parenting conflict. I am a ‘leader trainer’ in Relationship Enhancement® Program which is a ‘filial’ type of therapy.


Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender persons are welcome in my practice.
