A Licensed Professional Here to Guide You
Although my path to becoming a therapist was long and winding, I feel that in the end this path is what has made me an adaptable and effective therapist. I started my career in the business world after completing my BA in Economics at UCLA. After obtaining my CPA and working for a number of years in the corporate accounting world, I moved into executive search for financial professionals. I enjoyed the shift into a more social profession, but I always had it in the back of my mind that I would like to be a therapist someday. I saw a therapist for the first time when I was unsatisfied with my work in the corporate accounting setting, and I found it both very helpful and intriguing as a future endeavor. This eventually led me back to school, when I earned my MA in Counseling Psychology from The Wright Institute in Berkeley.
Fast forward to today, and my accounting and executive search work have served me well as a therapist. The analytical training of my earlier years helps to me to focus in on the issue at hand and think of different ways to attack it. The search side has honed my ability to connect with others and learn what is most important to them as they search for contentment in their lives.
I couple those earlier experiences with my extensive clinical experience with children, adolescents, and adults to provide treatment to clients dealing with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma, professional performance, and relationship issues, among others.
