Life’s hurts and offenses gets in the way of us experiencing what it is to be free from mental and emotional turmoil. As we go through life, we accumulate emotional junk and we don’t realize most times that these things cause us to literally be in bondage to the negative perceptions and behavioral patterns taken on. Rather, we often go through life bandaging up the wounds and hurts of our past, and we rarely address and deal with the origin of the issues. Although we cannot change what happened in the past, together we can gain insight and skills to overcome the challenges. It would be my pleasure to partner with you using tailor made therapy techniques and approaches to unpack these things and journey onward to a life of wholeness and freedom waiting for you to embrace!
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in individual and couples therapy for the adult and adolescent population. I am an innate people helper and get great joy in empowering others and assisting them to overcome any obstacles or barriers preventing them from maximizing their greatest potential. I have over 20 years of experience in mental health and social work and have worked mostly with the foster youth and their families, child abuse and neglect, and transitional age youth. My specialty is anxiety, depression, trauma, parenting, loss, grief, and life transitions. I graduated from Cal State Dominguez Hills with a B.S. in Public Administration in 2010 and from University of Phoenix Cum Laude Honors with a M.S. in Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2013.
Although I use various approaches in therapy, my primary approaches are solution focused and client centered therapy where we focus on the here-and-now and self empowerment, ultimately creating a more fulfilling life and a better future. With solution focused, client centered therapy, and other therapeutic approaches, I strive to empower people and assist them to maximize their greatest potential and experience a more fulfilling life and greater future.
