I have been working as a therapist/social worker with adults, children, and families through different organizations and psychiatric hospitals since 1993. Since then, I have also been on the journey of discovering my own true self through Western and Eastern psychotherapy.
Studying both the Western psychology and the discipline of an Eastern mystical path and experiencing them I came to integrate these two schools and incorporate them into my therapeutic work. In my practice, I use mystical stories, and movements, when necessary. In short, my work is to help you to work though your issues and life predicaments to awaken your inner love, and to find joy and beauty in your daily life.
Working at The Bridge to Recovery in Santa Barbara for the the last 2 years, I have experienced doing a lot of workshops and groups to help clients with childhood trauma and process addiction. One of the workshops that has been my specialty is Cinema Therapy group. In my private practice I do circle of psycho-spiritual Cinema Therapy groups as well as individual and couple therapy.
