Dear Potential Client,
My philosophy as a marriage and family therapist includes an eclectic, short-term solution focused style with a primary focus on cognitive behavioral therapy. I approach my work with a willingness to be flexible in developing a plan that is mutually agreed upon to help my clients reach their goals.
These approaches are presented and utilized within the parameters of my Code of Ethics, which I am required to adhere to in order to advance the welfare and best interests of my clients. As a licensed therapist I am required to complete on-going continuing education in order to uphold my license. I do this on a bi-annual basis.
Your welfare as my client is of primary importance and your confidential information will be protected as required by law. I will always perform to my highest ability and my clients can expect to be treated professionally.
My fee for therapy is $125 per 50 minute appointment.
My Masters Degree was obtained from Pepperdine University in 1999. My training comes from a vast array of settings including: AIDS Project Los Angeles, Pepperdine Community Counseling Center, Children and Family Services Agencies and lastly, in Private Practice.
