My Background and Approach
My background in the mental health field consists of obtaining my associates of arts in psychology from Citrus College, where I then went to Cal State Long Beach to obtain my Bachelors.

My therapeutic approach consists of Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person Centered Therapy, Mindfulness, Family Systems, and Rapid Resolution Therapy.

By utilizing several different techniques it allows the capacity for each client to have their own individual needs met.

I have learned over the years as a training professional that mental health has no bias against: age, sex, gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and religion. Therefore, I am devoted to helping individuals create a path of hope, success, love, and growth.
