I offer therapeutic services to individuals, couples, and families, guiding them through their journeys to finding improvement and healing. I believe that we all experience life uniquely, and your experience working with me will only be treated as such. We will work at your pace to navigate the struggles you are facing, while establishing goals that fit your path. I value fostering a strong rapport between client and therapist and believe in the importance of finding your fit in a therapist. My goal is to nurture a warm, compassionate, and therapeutic space in which you are the expert of your own life.
As an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, I have had extensive clinical experience in working with individuals from all walks of life, with whom I’ve worked on issues including stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, family and couple issues, body image, and substance use. More recently, I’ve specialized in helping clients with issues of navigating modern love and relationships, grief and loss, as well as chronic illness.
While my foundations are person-centered and humanistic, I utilize an eclectic therapeutic approach and prioritize catering to my clients’ individual styles and needs. Some of the approaches I practice include postmodern techniques, psychodynamic, and evidence-based approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy and emotionally focused couple therapy. Additionally, I work with a holistic, mind-body perspective, thus incorporating psychosomatic work in the therapeutic setting at my client’s discretion. Therefore, I incorporate such practices as meditation, mindfulness, breath work, and progressive muscle relaxation.
I earned my Master of Science in Counseling, Option in Marriage and Family Therapy, from California State University Northridge, and have garnered my training experiences throughout various institutions in the Greater Los Angeles area.
