In private practice since 1987, I treat children, adults and families. My specialities include abuse issues, domestic violence, and disaster management. I received my MSW at USC, followed by a two-year postgraduate fellowship at Reiss Davis Child Study Center. I completed coursework and was admitted to candidacy for a Ph.D. in clinical social work at USC.
Having completed a two year fellowship in clinical social work I did receive extensive training in psychotherapy working with children and families.In addition my studies at USC were focused on abuse and family violence.
I specialize in Abuse Issues, Domestic Violence, Relationship Issues and Disaster Management.
