About Me

Therapist, Founder /CEO of multiple Companies, Coach for Therapists, Author, & Nationally recognized Public Speaker


     I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in treating addictive disorders. As a nationally known speaker, I give presentations about addiction and mindfulness in the workplace. My success in practice has allowed me to advise others on how to develop themselves and their practice. My practice began in Long Beach, California and has extended over the years to include treatment centers in West Los Angeles and Orange County. As co-founder of Sano Center for Recovery, Currently serving as the chief executive officer, I run intensive workshops, and mentor new therapists. I am certified by the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and as a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. I was trained directly by the pioneer of the field, Dr. Patrick Carnes.


     In my years of treating those afflicted with addiction, I ascertained the keystone of mindfulness in breaking free from old patterns, habits, and ways of thinking. Steeped in my passion for science and Buddhist philosophy, I co-founded the Mindfulness-Based Addiction Therapy Certification Program (MBAT™). My expertise in the field of addictive behaviors can be found in the program, which takes a modern approach to Eastern techniques in exploring the mind. 


    My new book, "Awakening from the Sexually Addictive Mind: A Compassionate Guide to Recovery", sheds an intimate light on my own struggles and how I came to help others on a path I am intimately familiar with.
