I have 10 years of Clinical experiences with clients. I know what it’s like to navigate life’s transitions of stages of life and careers, to determine which directions or challenges to take on next. Professionally, I always had the passion to become a psychologist but had chosen to place it on hold to fulfill other endeavors both personally and professionally. I was born in the United States, became runner-up Miss California twice and was fortunate to have multi-faceted careers in the Entertainment business. Earlier as a Biligual professional model, film and television actress and later as a talk show host and producer of “Hola America” a Bilingual show on Celebrity Role Models and Hola America Health” a health forum interviewing Medical Physicians and healthcare advocates in Government.
It was through the” Hola America Health show” interviewing the former Lt. Governors of California, Mr. Cruz Bustamante and Mr. John Garamendi, both working under Governor Davis and Governor Schwarzenegger, who had encouraged me to focus on public service by becoming involved in Mental Health Care. Now I have come full circle in my life, having my first passion finally fulfilled as a Clinical license Marriage & Family Therapist.
This stage in my life has given me a sense of personal fulfillment and with my life experiences & Clinical skills, I can help & relate to all diverse communities.
