20 years I have worked with a variety of agencies and non-profit organizations
to help others comprehend their lives and draw insight and fresh perspectives.

have led workshops for the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center and
the California Men's Gathering in Malibu.
My experience working with various self help groups led me to Imago
Relationship Therapy, developed by Harville Hendrix, PhD. From 2001-2007,
I voluteered and assisted for "Getting the Love You Want"
workshops in Long Beach, California. As a result of my experience,
I was compelled to complete my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology

Master's in Clinical Psychology, I enrolled in the certificate program
with the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies
