The staff includes myself and my administrative assistant.


I obtained my Ph.D. in psychology from UCLA in 1989 and hold a Masters degree in Counseling from USC. I am licensed as a psychologist and as a marriage and family therapist.


Additionally, I am certified in the treatment of alcoholism and substance abuse through the American Psychological Association.  While the treatment of addiction is a specialty of mine, it is not the only basis of my work. I also work a great deal with family of origin problems, relationship conflicts, attachment and loss and family psychology in general. I treat all mental health problems, except organically based diseases.


My answering service is available 24/7 and will take your messages, contact me in emergencies and schedule your appointments.
