After receiving my Master's in Clinical Psychology, I enrolled in the certificate program with the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies and graduated with a certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in 2008. In addition to my training with LAISPS, I am certified as a Certified Imago Relationship therapist. I have also received in depth training with the Pacific Gestalt Institute in Los Angeles, Stan Grof's Holotropic Breathwork, and the Foundation of Shamanic Studies.
