About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California with over 8 years of experience working as a clinical therapist. I have worked in the public mental health setting since I have started my career journey and have enjoyed being a part of people’s mental health journey to wellness. Working in an outpatient clinic for several years, I have gained experience working with diverse populations, cultures, severe diagnoses, dual diagnoses, and socioeconomic statuses. I received my master’s degree in psychology from CalPoly Pomona in California. I have lived most of my life in wonderful California.
I enjoy individualizing each of my client’s treatment focus, tailoring each therapy session to my client’s needs. I have gained knowledgeable insight and experience assisting those to positively cope with mental health concerns and daily life stress. My therapy style is relaxed, genuine, and client-centered but rooted in creative expression with a foundation of cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. Some of my passionate and creative client centered models include; mindfulness, relaxation techniques, breathing techniques, developing communication skills, building self-esteem, structured problem solving, solution focused, developing emotional regulation skills, developing distress tolerance skills, and utilizing behavioral activation strategies.
It is not easy acknowledging you need a little help yet, asking for it. You have taken the first steps toward making a change and creating a life worth living.

I look forward to being a part of your road to wellness and recovery!
