I am honored to introduce myself and my very first blog post! This is a little new to me, so it's a little bit nerve racking! A little bit about me...
I've been practicing therapy since 2003, and have been licensed since 2008. I graduated from Pepperdine University in 2004 with a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Prior to private practice, I spent most of my career in child welfare, and served as Clinical Director for a local non-profit for 6 years.
A bit about my personal life...
I have been happily married for 11 years and have two awesome children, ages 8 and 4. I love fitness and exercise, and refer to myself as a video workout queen! I was born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga, and I graduated from Alta Loma High School.
I love my job. I meet so many wonderful people, people who often inspire me. My goal is to provide each client with a safe place, free from judgment, where they can explore, heal, and grow. It's always an honor to be a part of a person's personal journey, and a witness to self improvement.
Thank you for viewing my website. I am always available to anser any questions you may have about therapy. Feel free to call, text or email.
