Welcome! I am passionate about helping people find balance and peace in their lives whether they are struggling with relationship issues, mental health symptoms, or every day life stressors. I believe the therapeutic relationship we create is one of the most important components of a successful outcome. I strive to make people feel comfortable by remaining open minded, non-judgemental and genuine. I offer a strength based approach to the people I work with and the situations they are dealing with because I strongly believe every individual has the capability to promote healthy change in their lives when they are ready and willing using CBT, DBT and Solution Focused techniques. Life is already hectic with never ending to do list and responsibilities that it can be easy to fall out of balance and begin to feel overwhelmed by it all. I feel confident that we can problem solve ways to help you regain that balance. I take a holistic approach to assessing the areas of your life that are causing the imbalances and help you develop ways to either cope with the circumstances or find other solutions to help alleviate suffering. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California and have been working in the mental health field since 2000. I have been licensed since 2011 and before that worked as a behavior specialist . Most of my career has been working in the school system, juvenile detention centers and residential facilities for youth removed from their homes. I have worked extensively with children, adolescents and their parents. I am also passionate about the mind, body and soul connection and am constantly researching and learning new ways to improve this important connection within myself so that I can share insights and knowledge with others looking to do so as well.
