What To Expect At Your Visit

Perhaps you're feeling stressed, stuck, or anxious; maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship(s), or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery.  In my therapy sessions I promote self-exploration, behavioral change and assist you in looking at things from a new perspective.  Whether you’re going through a stressful period in your life, experiencing anxiety and depression, are in a difficult relationship, have been grappling with the same problem for years, or are simply seeking guidance for a particular issue, I have the tools and professional experience to help you empower yourself to move forward.

Get to Know Me

I earned my Master's degree in Counseling, with a specialty in Marriage and Family Therapy from San Diego State University. I have foundational training in multi-systemic and multi-cultural, family, couple and individual therapy. Throughout my professional career, I have worked in private practice, hospital and school-based settings providing counseling and psychotherapy services to children, adults, couples and families from diverse cultures, backgrounds and abilities.

I practice from a strength-based, solution-focused, systems, feminist and insight oriented perspective, believing therapy is an art my clients and I engage in collaboratively. I also incorporate elements of mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral therapy to help my clients meet their goals. Additionally, I believe a person's sexuality, sexual expression and gender identity play a significant role in an individual's mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Therefore, I believe exploring these aspects of the self in therapy, in addition to looking at other areas of a client's life, is a vital part of comprehensive mental health. Overall, I take a holistic, integrative approach to practicing psychotherapy and am grateful to have the opportunity to help my clients become the version of themselves they wish to be.
