About My Clients
After decades of working in the entertainment industry, while contemplating a career change, I was introduced to a social services agency that catered to industry professionals who find themselves, “in crisis, need or transition.” I thought, “I’m all three!” And so began my journey into helping others who find themselves in need of supportive change. I've worked with everyone from professional athletes, actors and musicians to those on the margins of society on Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles.
My Background and Approach
I hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communication from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I specialize in addiction therapy; in addition to being a licensed therapist in California I am a Licensed Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I work from a resilience-based model; in building emotional resilience, one can better manage the stressors of life and reach the goal of finding contentment and having a happy and meaningful life.
