My Approach to Helping
Seen on Dr. Phil, Downsized, Growth to Freedom, etc. I help you work toward solutions you can begin implementing today. Clients are given action plans to work on in between sessions. I also provide coaching to help put you on the path to the more successful and healthy life that you deserve. I work with individual adults, couples, adolescents, and families experiencing a variety of problems.
I have appeared on the Dr. Phil show and serve as a treating psychologist for Arizona guests appearing on the show. Similarly, I have served the same role for Dr. Drew's Lifechangers. I also have appeared on the reality TV series Downsized as the marital therapist for the couple followed on that show. Additionally, I have appeared in local news/information programs as well as serve as a guest expert for radio programs. I have been published in both scholarly journals and in books pertaining to mental health and treatment. I also have been quoted in several newspapers and national magazines.
My educational background includes: B.A. in Psychology from the University of California-Berkeley; M.A. and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia; clinical internship at the University of Illinois-Chicago; post-doctoral fellowship at ASU; and clinical residency at a local psychology clinic.
