About Me

Throughout my career I have cultivated skills which enable me to explore both your past and your present in order to help you make the necessary changes that lead to a more satisfying and well-adjusted life.


The love I have for my work motivated me to seek out many years of education in the field of both business and psychology. After earning my Bachelor of Science degree at USC in Business Administration (1985) and spending 10 years in the business world, I went back to school to pursue my passion and dream receiving my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Rosemead School of Psychology in La Mirada (2001). After earning my doctorate, I completed my training at The Center for Individual and Family Therapy (CIFT) in Mission Viejo, becoming a licensed psychologist in 2002. For the past 20 years I have been a consultant at Mariners Church. I have been married for 29 years and am the father of two wonderful young men.  Currently, I have a private practice in Newport Beach, California.


I welcome your inquiries. Usually, contacting me on the phone and then setting up an initial appointment for an in-person consultation is best. We can meet and discuss your concerns, and you can determine whether you think working with me will be helpful. I look forward to hearing from you.
