About Me & My Practice

As a relationship expert, I draw on the latest scientific research to help my clients create compatible and long-lasting personal and family connections. Peer-reviewed scientific journals provide the latest research findings in the fields of psychology, love and relationships which I then translate into useful, real-world techniques that can help my clients overcome any obstacle and achieve the life they’ve been dreaming of.

I use research in the areas of personality, couples and families, communication, gender, emotions, spirituality, and neuroscience to help bring couples and families together, and help discover and overcome the stumbling blocks that tear relationships apart. Complex problems like substance abuse, domestic violence, traumatic grief, relationship dissolution and low self-esteem may feel insurmountable, however, I can help you overcome these problems by harnessing the scientific discoveries that have proven effective in defeating these issues.

I received my Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and am currently finishing my Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy at Loma Linda University. I have a private practice with locations in Malibu and Newport Beach.
