Practice Description: Wow! Life can get crazy at times, right? Well, I have been practicing for almost 30 years and have been told I am good at what I do. My specialty is children & teens and their families. I also advocate for those children with agencies and schools in the community. In addition, I also have a specialty with eating disorders and women's issues. If you or someone in your family is feeling overwhelmed, let me help.

I have worked for LAUSD for 24 years holding various positions both inside and outside of the school setting. I've worked in the Mental Health Clinic seeing children & their families and parents. I worked about 10 years with Severely Emotionally Disturbed youth in the schools and about 7 years writing and conducting IEP's.
Having worked for LAUSD, I know my way around an IEP and what help and services schools can't AND can give you. I also have various connections & resources within the community to help my clients. I've been trained and practice various proven evidenced-based programs & love play and talk therapy.

I have strong clinical skills, am quite organized, am a strong leader with a good sense of humor, am definitely approachable with excellent written and oral communication skills. I am also flexible and calm and have a lot of experience with adolescents, autism, and advocacy for both the client and the family.

I would love to talk with you to see if we are a good fit for each other.
