Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My West LA office is conveniently located in a three story handicapped accessed building. My treatment offices contain a state of the art play therapy room with sink, sand tray and numerous arts/crafts and playthings, a fully equipped kitchen for snacks, drinks and family work. My background includes 30 years in the field of Education as a teacher and principal, and 25 years as a psychotherapist, working with preschoolers through adults.

I have 3 Master’s Degrees – Education, Psychology, and Marriage, Family and Child Counseling. My Ph.D. in Clinical Child Psychology extends to an understanding of development issues throughout the life cycle. I treat adults, couples and seniors. I’m skilled in family work: blended, re-unification and dissolution. My strengths are using creative arts in treatment. I use Animal Assisted Therapy, as my 3 Delta Pet Partner Therapy Dogs work with patients at UCLA Hospitals/PAC Team and R.E.A.D. in schools and libraries.
