About My Clients

Are you struggling with your self-worth? Is unhealed trauma blocking you? Maybe you’re feeling trapped in addiction or are anxiety and depression ruling your life? It takes courage to ask for help and could be what changes your life in a powerful and liberating way. You just want to experience freedom, but don’t know how to get there. My focus is finding clarity about who you are. Together, we’ll build up your resiliency and self-worth so that you are living in a place of empowerment and hope.

My Background and Approach

I have over twelve years of experience working in residential treatment, outpatient treatment, transitional living, sober livings, homeless shelters and counseling centers. I have helped hundreds of clients, first starting out at Tarzana Treatment Center, Malibu Life Recovery Center, Renaissance Malibu, Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission, San Fernando Valley Counseling Center and in recent years at The Villa Treatment Center and in private practice. I obtained my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Pacific Oaks College in Pasadena specializing in Trauma. I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT#188720) with the Board of Behavioral Sciences. Prior to getting my Master’s, I was certified with the California Association for Alcohol/Drug Educators as a CATC III Addiction Counselor.
