My Philosophy

I have wanted to be a counselor my whole life, starting out as the counselor at my overnight camp for our tent when I was 8 years old. I have my Bachelors and Masters degree as a Social Worker and my Doctorate in Psychology. I have had wonderful experiences working with all levels of mental health, in 1997 I began working at UCI and was given the opportunity to learn CBT by running a group and teaching the psychiatry residents group CBT.

That opportunity has been a blessing because CBT has allowed me to help so many clients get well, it works and the results can be fast.  Offering clients tools to get better creates a sense of hopefulness and empowerment that they can get better and know what to do when they leave my office when they have negative moods.  I practice what I preach because I know that challenging my own negative thoughts is how I can be happy and content in my own life.
