I have a private practice where I see both individuals and couples dealing with a variety of concerns including, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, eating disorders, parenting work as well as issues dealing specifically with the entertainment industry. I have facilitated Mindful Parenting Groups at The Maple Counseling Center and trained interns in this process. I am also certified to run workshops and train professionals in Reflective Parenting classes. I have taught as an adjunct professor at Antioch University in Child and Adolescent Development, Human Sexuality and Society and the Individual.


For 20 years I worked extensively as an actress in both television and film. I also have experience in producing, writing and directing independent films. I received my masters in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University. I trained at The Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills, where I specialized in adult Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy as well as Mindful Parenting work. I opened my practice in 2005.
