Life is hard sometimes and whether it be internal situations or external events that have disturbed the quality of your life I am here to help guide you through your struggles. I have a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from California Baptist University and am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #99929 in the state of California.I started practicing therapy formally in 2013. However, I started being formed as a counselor since my middle school days as a Peer Mediator. I have been previously trained and certified in Multidimensional Family Therapy. I have attended training seminars on Maternal Mental Health, Art Interventions and have a never ending thirst for learning how I can make the process of healing one
that is fruitful and lasting. I enjoy working with Adolescents, Young Adults, Children, and Mothers, but am willing to help anyone dealing with challenges related to anxiety, depression, and trauma. My therapeutic orientation is based on principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Structural Family Therapy. During my sessions, I encourage expression through art and play. I teach skills that enhance the ability to practice mindfulness, and restructuring of cognitive processing. In family therapy, I use enactments to create change in relationships. I believe the client and therapist relationship is essential in your path to healing. I value honesty, direct communication, and giving my client's detailed information of their treatment. Apart from providing direct therapy I am also supervising Registered Associates who are on their path to licensure. Outside of therapy I enjoy reading, making puzzles, cooking, and visiting Mickey and Minnie.
