Great to meet you!

I am a dedicated and compassionate therapist with 5 years of experience in mental health working with diverse individuals, families, couples, and teens. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in CA with a masters in counseling from Hope International University. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and stress management. I employ evidence-based approaches such as EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT).

A bit about my approach to therapy

My therapeutic approach is rooted in empathy and collaboration. I believe in creating a safe and nonjudgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts and emotions freely. I work with my clients so they feel empowered to find their inner strength and create positive changes in their lives.

What you can expect from our first session

Clients can expect to gain valuable insights into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Through meaningful conversations and self-reflection, clients develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their unique challenges. Additionally, they will learn practical strategies and tools to better manage emotional well-being and relationships. Ultimately, clients can anticipate a journey of personal growth, increased self-awareness, and skills needed to lead a more fulfilling and balanced life.
