I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
-Henry David Thoreau
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart ... Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.
I earned a Masters of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Mount St. Mary’s University. I have trained for the last two years at The Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills, CA. working with individual adults. I have also trained with Addiction Counseling at the Pasadena Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. Additionally, I intern with adolescents as a Resource Associate for Teenline.org.
I teach Personality Theory and Cognitive Psychology at Mount St. Mary's University in Los Angeles, CA. I consider myself a lifelong learner with a passion for emerging theories and techniques. I also have an extensive background in business development consulting.
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.
Everyone deserves a safe place for discovery. Sometimes the discovery is about friends and loved ones. Ultimately, the journey of discovery leads to the "self" and how we interact with others and ourselves. I want to help you on your search toward goals that you decide. I hope you find happiness based on what we discover together. I see our relationship as a collaboration. Whether you feel as though you are in a crisis or are just searching for clarification, I believe that we can work together to develop insight, understanding, and emotional healing.
Ultimately this is a journey of exploration. Seeking out therapy is a sign of strength. I strive to build trust between us thus creating a therapeutic environment where you feel genuinely understood, heard, and seen in a compassionate, non-judgmental space.
Our work together can explore and work through your deepest, most personal issues to reach a more meaningful, fulfilling, and whole life while reaching your extraordinary potential and purpose.
