About Me

Hello and Welcome!

I would like to commend you on this huge step that you have taken in exploring Better Help as a means of seeking assistance with working toward life improvement, wellbeing, and positive changes.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist in the state of California and I provide therapy to individuals, families, and couples with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and emotional dysregulation. I have also worked with diverse clients across various settings and with varying life challenges to include stress management, mental health difficulties, relationship issues, family conflict, and complex trauma.

I provide individualized services based on the unique needs of each individual, as people are unique and there is no one style fit for all when it comes to life, mental health, and wellness. I believe in a respectful approach and I employ sensitivity, and compassion without stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, solution focused, dialectical behavioral and mindfulness approach; and what is most appropriate for individual treatment needs. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I’m here to help you sort through, process, and navigate through the things that you’ve indicated are difficult for you right now. My goal is to offer a safe space with no judgment while providing guidance, coping skills, and emotional support to assist you with your life.
I look forward to speaking with you soon and assisting you in navigating your mental health and wellness journey.
