I earned my Master’s and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology from Biola University, Rosemead School of Psychology and completed my doctoral internship at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego while also serving four years in the United States Navy as a psychologist. I have worked and studied in the mental health field since 1996, gaining experience across the continuum of psychological care. I have experience in a variety of settings, including psychiatric hospitals, residential group homes, community mental health clinics, public schools, college counseling centers, and military medical facilities. I have also enjoyed presenting on a variety of issues, including PTSD, secondary trauma/compassion fatigue, and self-care for professionals. Currently, I provide individual, couples, and family therapy and feel honored to walk alongside clients who have experienced abuse, marriage and family conflict, depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and a variety of other psychological issues. I rely on my multi-faceted background in trauma and family systems, including EMDR training, in my work with clients.
My primary role at Journeys is to continue developing a highly trained, compassionate team of therapists who can provide excellent care. Despite not taking new clients at this time, I work closely with our client coordinator to make sure we can refer you to someone on the team who would be a good fit for you. And, if we don’t have someone that fits your needs, we keep an updated list of referrals in the community.
