My Approach to Helping
Are you experiencing a stressful situation right now in your life where you feel you just want to talk to someone? Are you fighting a lot with a spouse or having a hard time after a break-up? As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Board Certified Behavior Analyst practicing in the Mission Viejo area, I provide therapy for individuals, couples, and families.
Whether it's difficulty getting along with a loved one, financial worries, problems with co-workers, or emotional ups and downs, most people have something in their lives that they want to work on or change. This works best with active participation from you as well as a trusting relationship with me. People say that I am very easy to talk to and that they feel safe when sharing with me. I love being able to provide support and watch people strive to meet their goals using the action-based strategies given during sessions.
I offer assistance with relationships of any kind (spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, siblings, parent-child, family). My behavioral background has given me the experience of teaching parenting skills and coping skills for difficulties in all kinds of relationships. Having worked with special needs children, particularly Autism, I have witnessed the many stresses that those families go through and am passionate about helping them.
