I speak Spanish and I specialize in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Substance Abuse. I also treat mood disorders.
I treat children from the age of 5 years, adolesents, young adults, adults and seniors. I do individual, family, marital therapy.
I have been doing this since 1976. I believe in short term therapy. My goal in therapy is to help my patients to deal with their past, focus on the present and be ready to face the future with confidence and hope.It is important to help the patient to build a strong self esteem and develop firm boundaries. In marital therapy, I believe the duty of the therapist to build a bridge on two solid pillars. If the two have dealt with their past, then it is simple just to help them to communicate as "adults" and not as "parents" or "children".

They need to make an appointment. Once they come I make a detailed bio-psycho-social intake and then make suggestion to the patient about the therapy.
I have a masters in psychology from Loyala Marymount and a Ph.D in social and clinical psychology. I attend seminars to improve my skills.
I charge $100.00 per session if a person does not have medical insurance. If they have then they only pay the copayments. I accept many of insurances in California.
I worked with Kaiser Permanente in Substance Abuse for 20 years. Then I worked for two companies and now I work on my own.
All types of customers.
