Professional Statement

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in California. I have experience working with individuals from diverse gender, racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and cultural backgrounds. I have worked as a psychotherapist in various schools, mental health counseling centers, and clinics. I meet clients where they are, offering therapeutic support to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I use a variety of modalities including a strength-based approach to collaborate and problem-solve with clients. It is my hope as a clinician to connect, provide insight, and assist clients in recognizing, utilizing their strength, conquering challenges, handling conflicts, building resilience, and living their lives – fully.
