I attained my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. It was during the course of my five-year doctoral program at Pacifica that I had the extraordinary opportunity to build upon my Master's in Counseling. Prior to earning my Master's in Counseling and Pupil Personnel Services credential from Sonoma State University, I had obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of San Diego.

While at the University of San Diego, I had focused on the field of education, ultimately obtaining my teaching credential. My early career path was directed toward teaching and counseling, yet life had other plans for me-including attendance at Hastings College of Law in San Francisco. All the while, my longing to resume my true vocation never left me. After a somewhat circuitous journey, I returned again to the field of psychology that had been my calling since childhood. I have never looked back, and I am truly grateful each day for the opportunity to be of service to those in need.
