M.A., LMFT, LPCC
I offer authenticity, compassion, and commitment to my clients to support them in challenging and transforming their limiting beliefs while accessing their strengths, leading to a greater sense of wholeness and wellbeing. As a trauma-informed therapist, I understand how adult or childhood trauma can shatter a person’s sense of security and trust, leading to ongoing struggles with unsettling emotions, memories, anxiety, or numbness that won’t go away. From a multiculturally informed frame, I focus on helping my clients in overcoming anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addressing issues of self-esteem including healthy self-image, and a healthy relationship with food, using evidence-based approaches like CBT, DBT, and TFCBT. I also specialize in working with people who are coping with life transitions and difficult life changes, including adapting to the stresses and complexities of family life. I believe that a collaborative process defined by your goals can help anyone achieve lasting change. You can break free from these issues and achieve your potential.
My therapeutic approach is grounded in my commitment to understanding you as a whole person. You will be accepted, valued, and affirmed for who you are and where you are in your life. Rather than settling for short-term solutions, my approach involves identifying and addressing what is at the root of your struggles. Together, we will tap into your inner strengths to create new tools and strategies that will help you become more resilient.
I help individuals, couples, families, parents and caregivers, women of all ages, and others overcome such challenges through effective, confidential, one-on-one telehealth sessions. I have over 17 years of experience as a therapist and clinical supervisor. So let’s put my experience to work for you and help you turn your goals into realities!
I earned a dual Master's Degree in Counseling (Marriage and Family Therapy) and School Counseling at St. Mary's College of California. I provide affordable services through convenient and confidential phone and video sessions to clients anywhere in California.
