I have had the opportunity to work with young people, families, and adults in a variety of settings — a residential crisis shelter for troubled youth, a community mental health clinic, and my private practice — allowing me to gain a broad understanding of how mental health issues can impact people of all ages and from all walks of life in different ways.
I received my Masters of Science in Counseling from Cal State Fullerton and completed my MFT training as a staff counselor at Casa Youth Shelter in Los Alamitos.
I also hold a BA in Theater Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, and an MA in Acting from the Mountview Academy in London, England.
