My Approach to Helping
My calling is to comfort the hurting, heal the brokenhearted, and help people discover peace. Therapy is a powerful experience of change and growth. I work with individuals, teenagers, families, and couples to effectively reduce depression, anxiety, and stress, and to strengthen relationships and resolve grief, internal conflict, and past traumas. We will collaboratively work on altering self-destructive behaviors and negative thinking, build better thoughts and self-esteem, foster self-discovery, enhance intimacy, and help to develop one's general quality of life experiences. I offer caring, supportive, and solution-focused methods and possess a special gift to heal those who have experienced emotional, sexual, and physical abuse, as well as trauma issues. It takes bravery to reach out for help, and change arises in a trusting, supportive relationship in which we can explore in a delicate way what particularly concerns you. I have been a psychotherapist for 14 years, and graduated from University of Washington and UCLA. I am a couples communication expert and parenting expert. I specialize in Anxiety and Depression Treatment, Marital Therapy, Parenting, OCD, Trauma, coping with a disability, Divorce, Adolescent, and Abuse Issues.
