I attended Duke University for three years from 1990 to 1993. In 1993, following the death of my best friend, Alex, I transferred to Occidental College. Here, I earned Bachelor’s degrees in both Russian Language and Theatre Arts. In January of 2010, I graduated, with honors, from the University of Phoenix, with a Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I worked for over five years at a prominent clinic in North Hollywood and for over a  year in a private practice internship, providing  therapy for a wide spectrum of individuals, couples, children and families. 

     I have worked with individuals struggling with substance abuse, addiction, sex addiction, depression, mania, grief and loss, anxiety, trauma, codependency, and anger management. I have worked with couples and families on cultivating healthy communication skills, and identifying and changing multigenerational patterns of behaviors that persist through time. The courage exhibited by my clients in facing and overcoming their fears inspires my own continued growth and dedication to the profession of marriage and family therapy.
