"Experience is, for me, the highest authority. The touchstone of validity is my own experience. No other person's ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience. It is to experience that I must return again and again, to discover a closer approximation to truth as it is in the process of becoming in me." -Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person

Flexibility has been one of my greatest assets. Over the years I've proved that you don't have to be satisfied with one successful career, one line of education and one line of work.
I use the same principle in my therapy. People are different. Their problems, needs and circumstances are different. For this reason, I use different methods and Psychological Orientations. But above all, I'm a Humanistic/Existentialist who will tell the clients the truth about themselves.
I do not pacify my clients with "feel good" verbiage, but help them by telling them where the change needs to take place. Once a goal has been set, I help them at every step of the journey to a full recovery.
My clients get to take advantage of my decades of experience dealing with relationships, life problems, and the uncertainties we all face at some point in our lives.
Having traveled most of the globe and 4 continents, I'm very familiar with very different cultures and lifestyles. You get all of my life experiences together with my formal education and training by the American School of Professional Psychology, to help you with whatever problem you're facing.
As a PhD in Psychology, I treat many forms of mental health disorders. From Depression to Anxiety, from ADHD to Schizophrenia, I have treated them all. I also hold a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT). I am registered with the Board of Behavioral Sciences as a Marriage and Family Associate and have achieved over 5000* hours of counseling, qualifying me for a California license in MFT. I am qualified by the BBS to provide Marriage and Family Therapy (Reg. # 70067) under the supervision of Licensed MFT, Dr. George Bridges, PhD.
*BBS requires 3000 hours of specific experiences before qualifying a therapist to apply for a license.
