Welcome to my practice!
Welcome to my practice!
I am a clinical and forensic psychologist and am licensed in California. I work in multiple situations and with clients from a wide variety of cultures, backgrounds, ethnic groups, and personal identifications. I hold a PhD (doctorate) in Family Psychology and have been practicing for 15 years. I provide psychotherapy in my office as well as virtually (video meetings) for my clients' convenience.
My clinical work generally involves working with difficult populations and diagnoses, although I conduct therapy with most situations and all ages. I also have expertise in working with divorce situations (such as high conflict situations, coparenting therapy, relationship repair, or coping and adjustment) for all ages. I provide family and couples psychotherapy and conduct various psychological evaluations (such as pre-surgical evaluations, diagnostic evaluations, educational evaluations, and risk of addiction evaluations). I have conducted over 2000 clinical assessments.
My forensic work (any "court related" work) includes working for the courts and testifying as an expert in child development, domestic violence, child abuse, age-appropriate parenting plans, and divorce issues, as well as conducting child custody and personal injury evaluations, criminal evaluations, fitness for duty and civil competency evaluations. I have conducted well over 500 court-related evaluations and over 1000 psychological tests.
I have taught in the California Community College system for 21 years teaching child development, marriage and family courses, abnormal psychology, introduction to counseling, general psychology, and statistics classes.
I have presented nationally and internationally on various topics including trauma, suicide, psychological testing, interviewing children, starting and maintaining a private practice, and testifying in court for non-forensic mental health professionals (please see my Presentations page for more information). I consult on these topics as well.
I have provided reports for and am an approved evaluator for the courts in the following counties, and have testified in all of the following courts:
Los Angeles County
San Bernardino County
San Diego County
Low cost evaluations and psychotherapy are available through dedicated and trained staff members who meet California requirements to provide these services. Please call for additional information.
