Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist my practice spans all ages and holds a focus in creative professionals, adoption and trauma work. I earned my M.A. in Clinical Psychology with a Child Studies specialization from Antioch University in Los Angeles. I have also worked as a Counselor in both K-8 and high school settings and am finishing my third year as a Counselor at the Southern California Counseling Center working with individuals, families and couples. I completed the Family Training Program Certification there and will hold both TRM and EMDR trauma certifications as of July 2013. In addition, I am working with Jeanette Yoffe in a monthly adoption support group on the Westside and as part of her new non-profit, The Celia Foundation dedicated to all members of the adoption constellation. Before joining the psychology field my first love was the arts. As a producer and studio exec I was part of the Feature Animation team at Disney during the Renaissance years of The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Toy Story. I subsequently had a production deal at Fox under which the animated feature Anastasia was released. Prior to moving to Los Angeles to join the Mermaid team I was based in New York City. While there I was on the faculty at The Juilliard School (Drama Division), was a visiting professional for the Yale School of Drama and worked on many theatrical productions as a stage manager including the Broadway production of The Glass Menagerie with Jessica Tandy, the Off-Broadway and Broadway productions of Pump Boys and Dinettes and the 1st and 2nd National Tours of Cats in Boston, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles. Being part of telling timeless tales was great preparation for helping people discover the true stories of their own lives Education: M.A. in Clinical Psychology, Child Studies Specialization Antioch University, Los Angeles M.A. in Theatre Purdue University B.A. in Broadcasting and Theatre Marquette University Clinical Memberships: California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists www.camft.org Los Angeles Chapter of California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists www.lacamft.org Womens Association for Addiction Treatment (WAAT) www.waat.us I am married and a parent to three – two teens and a tween – both by birth and adoption.
