Narrative of Services:

Over the last 10 years, I have treated well over 100 individual clients with Hoarding Disorder (HD), approximately 50 group clients with HD, and have provided consultation and supervision for many other HD cases.  I specialize in treating HD, OCD, and trauma from a client-centered perspective. I believe in the power of recovery and clients’ ability to make lasting changes in their lives. 

Background and Training:

I received my undergraduate degree from San Diego State University and a Master’s and PhD Degree from Alliant International University. My graduate program is known for their multicultural approach emphasizing it throughout my graduate training.  completed an APA internship at the Central Alabama VA Healthcare System in Tuskegee, AL and completed my postdoctoral training at the VA San Diego Healthcare System in La Jolla, CA. I was mentored by a well-known psychologist who treats older adults with HD, Catherine Ayers, PhD, ABPP.   From 2016 until 2020, I served as a clinical supervisor for the CREST Community Program that assisted low-income at-risk older adults with HD.  I have presented at multiple conferences and been part of expert symposiums focused on treating hoarding disorder.  I have also been involved in research investigating treatments for HD, and co-authored over 15 scholarly articles.
