I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in California with over 10 years of experience working to help others. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and life transitions. I also helped many people who have experienced trauma and emotional abuse.
My counseling style is collaborative and interactive. I believe in providing treatment with dignity, transparency, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing or pathologizing. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, existential, and psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our interactions and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to take steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. As a therapist, I want to provide you the safe space to be as authentic as you desire with integrity, dignity, and respect for yourself and others.
I look forward to working with you.
