- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I complete at least 36 hours of continuing education every two years to stay up to date with the latest treatments on Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety, OCD, Separation Anxiety, and Phobias. In addition, as part of these 36 hours, I also take courses on the latest laws, regulations, and ethics pertaining to psychologist and providing the highest quality care to patients. I love to learn and I love bringing this expertise to each patient of mine. Take a look at my website newportcoastcounseling.com to learn more or give me a call today.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was an undergradute at Trinity University in Texas, I was searching for a major and I fell in love with psychology. I knew I enjoyed the area academically, so I wanted to see if I would enjoy psychology research and clinical practice. So I created my own position working at the US Air Force, working with US Air Force Psychologists, who further encouraged me to pursue my passion. My supervisor, Dr. Kelley Freeman, was a captain in the Air Force and also a psychologist who graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary, Graduate School of Psychology. His mentorship made a significant impact on my decision to move to Los Angeles to pursue my passion at Fuller Theological Seminary, Graduate School of Psychology to earn my PhD in Clinical Psychology and to become a licenced psychologist.
- What types of customers have you worked with?
I am a licensed psychologist, specializing in Anxiety Disorders. Do you have difficulty difficulty relaxing? Are you frequently stressed out? Do you find yourself worrying all the time? Don't suffer any longer. I can help.
