I specialize in Children, Adolescents with Overt Behavior(s), Gay and Lesbian Issues, Parent Child Conflicts, blended families, life transition issues, Dual Diagnosis issues, Substance abuse/use, divorce recovery, grief and loss, and stress management.

I have vast experience in Parent Education; which I learned from numerous seminars. I have conducted workshops and seminars teaching Parent Education in a variety of settings. I have given lectures / seminars to specific groups; such as: teens with divorced parents, and first time parents. I have also run numerous anger management groups for children and adolescents. I am trained in Family mediation and multicultural mediation and am a certified Court Advocate trainer for Family Law. I have also worked for over 10 years with Orange County probation.
