About Me

I am a Certified EMDR Therapist, an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and an EMDR and Advanced Topics Trainer on Faculty at the Institute for Creative Mindfulness
 My work as a therapist, consultant and trainer has its roots in the experimental theatre community of New York City and Paris in the 1980s. I was originally trained as a Drama Therapist and Marriage and Family Therapist in the early 90s. I subsequently did further training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and then in EMDR Therapy. I have been licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 2003 and as a Professional Clinical Counselor since 2014. I have been a Registered Drama Therapist since 1999. Over the course of more than 20 years, I have worked in a variety of settings including as a clinical director in addiction treatment facilities, with veterans organizations, and extensively in private practice.  I have presented seminars at the Expressive Therapy Summit in New York and Los Angeles, at the national conference of the North American Drama Therapy Association (NADTA), at the San Diego Psychological Association conference, at CalTech’s Student Wellness Program, and at the Applied Improvisation Network World Conference.  
I teach in the MFT Program at Pacific Oaks College and am on the faculty of the SoCal Drama Therapy Center.
