About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of California: License #53136 (LMFT), a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor-II (CADC-II), and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT).

I earned my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary, where I also earned an Addiction Studies Certificate. My training began at a six month residential drug and alcohol treatment facility: New Life Community Services, in Santa Cruz, California. Training there included facilitating groups, teaching, and counseled individuals. I eventually became a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor II (CADC-II). Several years later, I moved my private practice to San Jose, California. 

As an adjunct to my private practice in San Jose, California, I was asked to join  the Addiction Recovery Center (ARC) team. ARC was an intensive out patient program for sex addicts, partners, and couples. As part of the team, I facilitated men's groups, counseled individual addicts, their partners, and couples.  In addition to the training I received from the director of ARC, Dr. Mary Anne Fifield, DMFT, CSAT, I also enrolled in the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professional's (IITAP) intensive training to become a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). 

specialize in addiction counseling with individual addicts, their partners, and couples who are struggling with the problems that are associated with the compulsive behaviors that have negatively impacted their lives.
