 I am a Licensed Marriage & Family         
 Therapist -MFT 45884, a Certified Sex
 Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and a Certified 
 Clinical Partner Specialist(CCPS).

 I treat partners/spouses whose lives have
 been impacted by sexual addiction and 
 intimate betrayal. I facilitate two weekly
 groups that focus on trauma, shame, 
 trigger-management, as well as
 relaxation techniques amongst other
 topics to help partners heal in a
 supportive and nurturing environment.

 I utilize mindfulness practice and am
 trained in the trauma resiliency model
 (TRM)as well as EMDR to alleviate the 
 effects of trauma on the body and to help
 restore it to balance.

​ My clinical experience also includes work
 with disordered eating, depression, 
 anxiety disorders and substance   
 abuse/dependence.

 I have been in private practice since
 2005 having trained at the Gay and Lesbian  Center as well as TEENLINE at Cedar Sinai 
 Hospital in Los Angeles.   

 Born in Africa, I was exposed to a variety
 of cultures and lifestyles and I bring to 
 the therapeutic relationship a sensitivity
 to diversity and acculturation. I have a 
 keen interest in how societal, cultural and
 gender expectations influence people and 
 how these pressures to conform affect 
 self-esteem and overall mental health.

 My professional affiliations include
 membership in California Association of
 Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT), 
 The Association of Sex Addicts Trauma 
 Specialists (APSATS)and the
 International Institute for Trauma and 
 AddictionProfessionals (IITAP).
