I believe the Kingdom of God lives in our relationships. To that end, I earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in Los Angeles, with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy, in 2003. I have been licensed in New York State as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 2009. To address the problem behaviors I was experiencing with children in families better, I earned my Board Certification in Behavior Analysis (BCBA) in 2014 and became licensed in NY as a Behavior Analyst in 2015. I am a Positive Psychology, Family Systems, Narrative, John Gottman and Emotional Focused-based therapist who also relies on Cognitive Behavioral methods to coach people into the Greatness God has already placed inside them.
I have worked closely with individuals with Developmental Disabilities and their families to understand, reduce, and transform challenging behavior and heal the emotional issues that these challenges often bring to a family.
I am a Certified Nurtured Heart Advanced Trainer/Therapist, personally trained by Howard Glasser (the creator of the approach). This work serves as a foundation to all I do. The Nurtured Heart Approach provides a simple understanding to complex behavioral concepts and is consistent will all psychological and biblical teachings. I look forward to increasing you, your joy, your confidence, your love.
