About My Clients
I understand that reaching out for help or starting a journey of personal growth can be challenging, and my hope is to assist with this transition and help you determine what you might want to focus on in therapy. I work with adolescents, adults and emerging adults, families, and couples within a private practice setting.
My Background and Approach
As a clinician, I draw from empirically supported and compassion-focused interventions that are individually-tailored for the specific needs and identities of my clients. I have respect for their unique life experiences, and I believe that this respect is the basis for growth and allows for the enhancement of self-worth and meaning making. I have a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology, and a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University. I have delivered solution-focused therapy in a variety of settings including community-based treatment centers, inpatient units, residential programs, and university counseling centers.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My therapeutic values are geared towards highlighting resilience, enhancing sense-of-self, promoting identity exploration, and broadening perspectives of self-in-relation to others and their cultural world. I have a creative lens and use a collaborative relationship in connecting with and supporting my clients. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and am committed to providing a safe space to process any personal challenges you might be going through during this stressful time.
