About My Clients

Areas of focus include: narcissistic abuse recovery, healing from trauma, identity, body image, intergenerational trauma, managing anxiety & stress, personal growth & life transitions, family estrangements, and working with individuals and couples on relationship and intimacy work--including high-conflict divorce and separation, co-parenting, blended families, and stepfamilies. I work with children 10 & up, teens, adults of all ages, and couples.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT #133468). I earned my M.A. in clinical psychology with an MFT emphasis at Pepperdine University. My background includes work as an educator, entrepreneurship, running an entertainment agency, and serving as a Humanist Chaplain. I also draw from my experience as a Latina woman in a multicultural marriage, a person who has lived through childhood trauma, who has experienced divorce and single motherhood raising a neurodivergent child, as well as remarriage and the beautiful complications of being a stepparent and co-creating a blended family. I operate through an all-inclusive lens, utilizing evidenced-based practices from a Humanistic, feminist, anti-racist, person-centered, strength-based, LGBTQIA+ affirmative and trauma-informed perspective.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

In addition to my MFT and clinical experience, I have specialized training in EMDR, ACT, and Gottman Couples Therapy. I also have extensive experience with teens through teaching, raising my own, and working as a school-based counselor, and enjoy the opportunity to work with children 10 and up. In my spare time, I volunteer as a reading tutor for young people with Reading Partners of LA, serve on the board of my local school district's PTA addressing DEI issues, and work as a pro bono therapist for Immigrants Rising. I am passionate about doing my part to strive toward a safer, more equitable, and healing community.
