Accepting Clients

I am an open, honest, and engaging therapist who will be right alongside you as you build resiliency, strength, coping skills, and heal.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA

About My Clients

I specialize in working with young adults and adults who are experiencing stress and struggling due to life transitions such as a change in career, a relationship, or living and due to relational difficulties with their partners, families, friends, and colleagues. My clients appreciate the relaxed and comfortable setting that allows them to be open and honest. Together, we will figure out goals and tangible solutions to achieve them and ways to reduce anxiety and decrease depressive symptoms.

My Background and Approach

My approach and theoretical orientation is a mix of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Positive Therapy. I use CBT to help my clients identify cognitive distortions and irrational thoughts, how it negatively impacts their lives, and challenge and shift their thoughts and distortions to bring about positive changes and improvements. My clients improve their emotional regulation and develop healthier coping strategies. Through Person-Centered Therapy, I get to fully know and understand my clients. I give them the safe space that they need to express and process their emotions. My clients gain deeper insight, a sense of independence, and resilience to move forward. With Solution-Focused Therapy, my clients and I work collaboratively to develop solutions to their problems and goals that they will like to achieve in the future. My clients appreciate the directness and focus in creating tangible solutions to their problems.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone is unique and deserves the space to express who they are without judgment or fear. I value and respect individuals from all walks of life. It is a great joy for me to learn from, grow with, and experience life with all my clients as we share in all the highs and lows of their journeys with empathy and compassion. Therapy has helped me broaden my perspective and outlook on life. It has challenged me to be more open and accepting of things outside of my control. I appreciate the opportunity to utilize what I have gained with all my clients.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
