I grew up in a small Southern Missouri town, and eventually moved to Southern California to finish my doctorate in psychology. Now that I’m living in Los Angeles I can better appreciate how culturally diverse and complex relationships can be, which has greatly influenced how I negotiate both personal and business relationships. Growing up in a community where addiction, economic struggles, and prejudice were common I find that I have a strong sense of empathy for how stuck, powerless, or unaccepted a person can feel. Moreover, growing up with and learning from business savvy mentors I find that I have a knack for advising people on how to make strategic choices to improve their careers or enhance their organization’s functional capacity. I feel it is my duty to try to help people (and businesses) feel empowered so that they can succeed .
I am currently employed at PCI Westlake Centers as a staff Psychologist. I do”Live talks” on Sundays about topics related to mental health, wellness, psychology, and neuroscience. For the last ten years I have worked in various for-profit and non-profit companies. I have enjoyed serving my clients in both the clinical and business worlds, and I look forward to partnering with you to create lasting success. Please feel free to get to know me better and contact me!
