I wasn’t always a therapist.
I’ve worked with plenty of leaders over the years—first as a subordinate, then as a peer and eventually as a boss, mentor and coach.
One phrase I collected along the way that has always stayed with me is “A ‘meeting’ ends with clear next steps and deadlines; otherwise, you were just having a chat.” This reminds me to focus on what I’m working for and doing to make it happen.
Focusing on results got me here, to this moment.
In my early adult life, I felt like an observer—a passive player in my own story.
As I began to increase my focus on where I wanted to be, it became clear that I wasn’t anywhere near it. I had achieved all kinds of conventional success, but I hadn’t achieved what was important to me personally.
With a vision of the life I wanted to live, I began my journey towards the results I craved and found my way here.
Credentials, education, experience, etc.
While earning my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University, I trained with multiple mental health professionals across Los Angeles. I'm licensed to practice in California where I see clients online and in person, and I'm also licensed in Colorado where I work with clients online only.
When I’m not working directly with clients, I also teach Theories of Counseling + Psychotherapy, Interpersonal Skills + Group Therapy and Clinical Practicum at Pepperdine University.
The corporate survivor.

I’ve created, documented and implemented policies, standards and training programs across multiple global organizations. I’m also experienced in project/change management and leading cross-functional teams.
