Hello! I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I hold a Master’s Degree from Antioch University – Los Angeles in Clinical Psychology. My expertise in mental health care includes over six years of clinical counseling in non-profit and private practice settings - and loads of life experience.
My counseling style is eclectic, relational, and empathic; and I will be very curious to hear your unique narrative and conversation style. One benefit of talk therapy is that the counselor is there to actively listen and engage with you. A friend in some ways may be supportive, but might not really spend time listening, and perhaps interrupt when you try to express yourself.
When life throws you a curve-ball with hardship and losses, that time of struggle is typically the time to start therapy. Yet, another reason to embark on therapy will not be a crisis, but a general sense of discontent. Maybe you have felt for a while stuck in a rut, even though you may have a network of acquaintances, friends, and family. Somehow though, you find yourself continuing on the same limiting path, but sense on a certain level that given the tools and strategies, you could lead a more fulfilling life. Or maybe you find yourself feeling a little anxious or depressed for no good reason. Together we will collaborate and explore options for you to manage life’s hurdles and challenges.
