 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 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).
