I am a professor of psychology at Loma Linda University and a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of California. My research focuses on ways to increase access to mental health services in under-resourced communities. 

I provide consultation on mental health services research projects, policy-making, and community mental health.

I also accept a small number of clients and provide services for youth and young adults with depression, anxiety, and autism.​
