About My Clients

I have worked in the field of severe mental health disorders, adolescents dealing with a wide variety of trauma, domestic violence, sex trafficking, addiction, and parenting practices. No matter what the experience is, I work from a trauma informed care approach which provides an environment of understanding, compassion and a non-judgmental experience.

My Background and Approach

I am an LMFT and received my Master Degree from San Diego State University and my Bachelor Degree from California State University San Marcos in Psychology. In addition, I received a Master’s degree from Azusa Pacific University in Physical Education. I enjoy academics and value the knowledge and opportunities of growth that education and research provide. I often practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, depending on the modality of therapy that is needed for the client. I am also passionate about Attachment Theory and the benefits it provides to children and how those benefits manifest themselves into our future and the quality of our relationships with others.
