I have been a practicing clinician for over a decade. I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Masters in Creative Arts Therapy - Dance/Movement Therapy, which identifies symptoms and creates ways to express psychological and emotional experiences through the mind/body connection, ultimately transforming words into action.
I am the National Clinical Spokesperson for The Andréa Rizzo Foundation. With their sole funding, I brought the first Dance/Movement Therapy Programs to UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital and Children's Hospital Los Angeles, where I provide bedside therapy to children with cancer, special needs and terminal illness.
I have specialized in supervising, facilitating and providing treatment for children with special needs and their families. I have worked in psychiatric hospitals and at rehabilitation centers for trauma, addiction and pain management. I worked as the coordinator for Behavior Intervention Programs within the home/school setting.
I support individuals (on need basis) at Paradigm Malibu Adolescent Treatment Center.
In my private practice, I work with children of all ages and their families, and I have an inviting, tranquil setting to conduct the sessions.
