I am a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have worked in mental health and social services for more than 20 years and been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice for more than seven years. I decided to return to school for my doctorate (PsyD), graduating in January 2022 from the Chicago School of Clinical Psychology's Los Angeles campus.
I have worked with individuals, couples, and families from a variety of different backgrounds but focus on individuals over the age of 16 and couples.
I prefer Emotionally Focused Therapy in my work with couples as it deepens their communication, enhances understanding of attachment needs, resolves and prevents conflict and ends destructive patterns in relationships.
I use a combination of approaches with individuals, and some of my couples. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I use interventions that are best suited to the unique needs of each client in order to help them achieve their goals.
