I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in both Texas and California. I have been working in a counseling field since 2010. I have experience practicing individual, couples, family, and group counseling in both residential, outpatient, and school-based settings. I have worked in psychotherapy treating depression, anxiety, relationship, parenting, and family issues, child and adolescent concerns, substance abuse/addiction, trauma, adjustment issues, personal growth/career, and self-esteem
A client-centered approach is the foundation of every client relationship I practice. This means that I inherently honor and value each client's uniqueness, personal story, and their ability to bring positive change into their lives. I also utilize other counseling theories as needed tailored individually to each client's needs including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Narrative Therapy, and Family Systemic Therapies.
My Educational Credentials include:
- Master's (M.A.) in Clinical Psychology (APA)
- Licensed by State of California Board of Behavioral Sciences
- Licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Marriage and Family Therapists
- Current Counselor Education and Supervision (CES) doctoral student (CACREP)
I believe in creating a safe space where I can collaboratively work together with each client to develop and meet their individualized concerns . Honoring diversity and meeting each client "where they are at" is integral in every client relationship. This also includes my commitment and responsibility in practice to continual training and education in order to provide the most competent services.
I look forward to working with you!
