I'm a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in the Playhouse district
of Pasadena, California where I provide psychotherapy for adult individuals and couples. I'm Board Certified in
clinical psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP), a distinction held by only 5% of psychologists.
It's my goal to create
a comfortable, safe environment where we'll work together to achieve your goals. Therapy can be among the most challenging
and rewarding experiences of your life - I consider it a privilege to join my clients on their journey.
My specialty is helping people gain independence and power in their life. Many of
my clients focus on relationships, mood disorders, personal growth,workplace issues, fitness and sports performance,
spirituality or creativity. I have a great deal of experience working with males and Christians.
my expertise as a clinician in private practice for nearly 20 years, a clinical professor at Fuller Graduate School, a former
instructor at Pepperdine University's Graduate School and Glendale College, and co-author of What Wives Wish Their Husbands Knew About Sex (with Stephen Simpson and Richard Rupp, Baker Books, 2007). I write a blog for Psychology Today helping clients get the most out of their therapy and I write an interview column for Psychotherapy Networker magazine. Along with a team of graduate students, I founded the first ever National Psychotherapy Day on September 25, 2012. I've been a clinical psychologist in private practice in Pasadena since 2002.
