Great to meet you!

Hi there! You should know that I have a passion for helping people and will welcome you without any judgments. Through my prior experience at USC and my prior work in the correctional field, I feel competent in being able to support you through a variety of different concerns. Tambien hablo Espanol. Being bilingual allows me to support more individuals.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I understand that, at times, life can be difficult or confusing, so reaching out for help is a great first step. I welcome you to explore the intricacies of your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions with me. I will guide you and support you throughout this process as we work together towards improving your mental health. I use various therapeutic approaches to support you and have several years of experience working in the mental health field.

What you can expect from our first session

believe an important part of therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. Because of this, I focus on creating a safe and trusting environment for you. I tend to be very easygoing but also remain focused on our goals to provide you with the best care possible.
