Welcome! I believe "Hardships are a detour not a dead end" so I thank you for having the strength to reach out.
I started working with most in need populations while attending California Lutheran University, where I graduated with a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marital and Family Therapy. I am currently a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist in California. Working as a school based-counselor and primary clinician in psychiatric, I have experienced the complexities of family relationships, stress and anxiety, grief and loss, phase of life changes, work related issues, motivation, self-esteem, adjustment disorders and of course persistent diagnosis as well such as Depression. I am compassionate for how we experience the world as an individual and in the collective.
I am a person-centered therapist who uses an integrated approach to working with individuals. This allows for a more personal experience instead of the same set curriculum for all. Even though I pull knowledge from all theories and practices, I use Family Systems Theory, Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory and Mindfulness practices often. I can also help you strengthen coping skills, life skills, independent living skills and awareness or insight skills.
I appreciate Carl Jung's perspective that there is not a linear path in life or in psychology. We often need to look at life and self from different angles and with many different strategies. I honor your consideration of having me as part of your life and space. I look forward to working with you!
