I grew up in a small Southern Missouri town, and eventually moved to Southern California to finish my doctorate in psychology.  Growing up in a community where addiction, economic struggles, and prejudice were common I find that I have a strong sense of empathy for how stuck, powerless, or unaccepted a person can feel. Living in Los Angeles helps me appreciate how culturally diverse and complex relationships can be. So, it is my duty to try to help people feel empowered and better navigate complexity so that we all can succeed.

Moreover, I've been gifted with good luck in having business savvy mentors (i.e., millionaires) who have taught me so much about negotiating.  Thanks to this good luck, I've been able to use those skills to help companies and executives make strategic choices to improve their careers and do "better" business. 

I am currently employed at PCI Westlake Centers as a staff Psychologist. I also do"Live talks" on Facebook and YouTube about topics related to mental health, wellness, psychology, and neuroscience.  ​For the last ten years I have worked in various for-profit and non-profit companies. I have enjoyed serving my clients in both the clinical and business worlds, and I look forward to partnering with you to create lasting success. Please feel free to get to know me better and contact me!
