Find the Support You Need
Making the decision to start therapy takes courage. Painful experiences you go through can cause you to feel stuck, and this becomes frustrating and at times paralyzing. Therapy is a process that helps you to gain understanding and deeper meaning in life.
As a therapist I am here to help you discover what is blocking you from living the life you want. Together we will collaborate as you begin to make changes in your life, where needed, and start attaining the goals you desire.
For the past 16 years, I have been working in the mental health field, supporting people with a variety of issues. I like to create a safe space for you to explore with my authenticity and curiosity.
Studying at California Southern University, I earned my Master of Arts in Psychology Marriage and Family Therapy. I am both an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Counselor, with special training in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
My psychodynamic approach is influenced by attachment and person centered theory as well as emotion focused therapy. I look forward to working with you.
