My Approach to Helping
I am currently providing affordable, engaging, multi-cultural services in California. Services are tailored to a busy lifestyle through the flexibility of both online and in-person sessions available at your discretion. Specializing in children, teens, families, couples, and adults who are struggling with depression, substance use, anxiety, ADHD, suicidal thoughts, self-harm behaviors, trauma, abuse and neglect, relational problems, anger, autism, and severe mental health.
Our sessions are geared towards you applying the skills and techniques necessary to address your concerns, fears, or other symptoms appropriately. This includes how to affectively deal with anxiety and stress and to challenge behaviors such as anger or insecurity that interfere with your relationships and life goals.
All experiences in life shape who we are and give us a unique identity. The meaning of life is unique for each person and together we will discover your personal strengths and resources to overcome your current and long-term struggles in life. The goal is for you to experience positive and lasting results.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have a Master?s degree in counseling psychology and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). LMFT?s have the education and training to provide therapeutic services to adults, children, teenagers, couples, and families. I have clinical experience working with both youth and adults. Working with youth requires more creativity and talent and I feel gifted for being able to connect emotionally with young ones. Additionally, I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and EFT (Emotion Focused Therapy).
