“There is power in understanding

the journey of others to help create your own.”

— Kobe Bryant


One of the pleasures of establishing a successful private practice is the opportunity to work with associate (pre-licensed) marriage and family therapists who are working toward licensure. It is a pleasure to walk them on this journey. 

Currently, I am supervising one very talented intern. Please contact her directly to schedule an appointment.
