Some of my clinical areas of focus include relationships, chemical dependency recovery, compulsive gambling, sex addiction, coping with chronic illness, anxiety disorders, and depression. I have also been involved in helping create counseling programs at various agencies. I have a Masters of Science degree in Clinical Psychology from San Francisco State University.

I am available for television, radio, and print interviews on issues of mental health, chemical dependency recovery, compulsive gambling, foster care, coping with chronic illness, and LGBT mental health.
