The first step is making contact...

You can expect that I will return your call within 48 hours of you leaving a message on my confidential voice mail at 949-228-7882.
I see patients at 33852 Barcelona Place,
Dana Point, CA 92629 by appointment only.

If you are experiencing an emergency, please do not wait for a return call. Call the Orange County Crisis Clinic at 1-877-727-4747.

In our initial phone call you will have the opportunity to let me know what your concerns are for your child, ask me questions about how my private practice operates, and then decide if you would like to set up an intake session.
