My first life choice was as an actor having received a BFA from a performing arts conservatory.  Life handed me challenge after challenge allowing me to learn the skill of resiliency and the desire to improve myself, which, in truth, was a grueling process.  A process, I imagine, that might be similar to your own at this challenging time.

In the years that followed I explored various life choices and professions that revolved around human connection and relationships. It was during this time I discovered my gift of connecting with people and eventually became a Certified Parent Educator using the art of Nonviolent Communication (NVC).  

After studying early childhood education and neurological development, I started work at a preschool where I stayed for many years.  I still relish teaching Parent Education at the preschool to this day.  I then developed a deep knowledge of early early human development and become a childbirth educator. I continue to adore teaching childbirth education at a birth center in Silverlake. 

I received my masters at Pacific Oaks College as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) and spent my Traineeship honing my skills at the Center for Individual and Family Counseling (CIFC).  I'm thankful to say I've cultivated all my lifelong passions and life choices as a registered Intern at my private practice in Pasadena.
