I am a licensed marriage and family therapist working with families, couples and individuals for the past twelve years in California. I attended Chapman University with a focus in Psychology and Counseling. I have had the pleasure of working in numerous multidisciplinary teams in California and with community and county agencies which has enriched and fulfilled my career and also my client centered perspective. I have a background in trauma focused treatment as well as working with people with bipolar disorder. I have training in CBT and DBT which I find helpful with anger management, distress tolerance and coping strategies. I have also been involved in strategic solution focused treatment to fit our busy and fast paced lifestyles. It is my passion to help clients find a more mindful and pleasant life experience and it is my pleasure to enrich your life journey as well.
