Experience and Education
Psychology, as a means to guiding people through their problems and toward well-being, is a subject that has fascinated me throughout my adult life. My undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees have all been earned in psychology. In 2002, I was licensed as a clinical psychologist in the State of California. And in 2004, through postgraduate education, training, and demonstrated experience, I earned my credentials as a Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. In Februrary of 2010 I became a member of the Association for Behavior and Cognitive Therapies.
My clinical experience stretches back to 1991 when I first served on a suicide/crisis phone line and includes the years I have spent in private practice. I have served as an adjunct professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies and as an adjunct assistant professor at the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology. I have served as an adjunct professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies and as an adjunct assistant professor at the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology, as well as having co-written and presented research papers with my colleagues.
