My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist that has been working with families, and children of foster care and adoption for the past 16 years. I graduated with my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary in 2006 and I’ve been licensed for the past year in the state of California.

Throughout my work with individuals, focused attention has been given to attachment issues, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, and learning to constructively leverage and manage the challenges or crises we face throughout life.

For those suffering or simply stuck, discovering their worth, value, and higher purpose is my passion. I take a cognitive behavioral approach while considering attachment issues and the impact our family of origin has upon our belief systems.

Change is entirely possible through the power we all possess. I carry this faith as an intercession for each of my clients.
