As a young adult, I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.A. in Psychology and naturally gravitated to the helping professions. I eventually became a Case Manager at a group home for juvenile delinquent boys in Chicago. In this position, I integrated myself as a surrogate parent, role model, and liaison for these young men to bridge better lives. The experience gave me leadership responsibilities and I learned essential lessons about healing; most importantly that no matter how hard one works on the behalf of another person, only that person can choose a better life for himself (or herself). My involvement with social work started me on a path in the helping professions.
Today, with my continuing education, I have become a Certified Hypnotherapist through the Hypnosis Motivation Institute (HMI), a Nationally Accredited College. I have a private practice in Los Angeles, where I focus on individual and group therapies both in-person and online.
