I’ve been honored to hold healing space for individuals walking through many challenges and hardships; alcohol and substance addiction, trauma, domestic/intimate partner violence, anxiety, depression, grief, and life adjustments. I’ve worked in a variety of settings such as outpatient treatment, residential substance treatment, and private practice.
I believe that my role as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist is to assist in guiding individuals and couples through a therapeutic relationship. Providing a safe and non judgmental space that is client-centered is my top-priority. My goal is to utilize my skills and training to help you heal and grow. I value people’s stories and understand that the process of therapy can be daunting but extremely rewarding. I strive to maintain transparency, authenticity, and compassion while navigating you on the path of recovery. I am me, unapologetically, in all aspects of my life, and value bringing my authentic self into my work.
I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT123673). I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy through University of La Verne in California.
I have always known that I wanted to be in the helping profession. I have over 18 years of collective experience that started in 2004, working in the mental health field providing support, guidance, and advocacy. In 2012, I decided to return to school and complete my undergraduate degree in psychology. I then went on to receive my masters in Marriage Family Therapy in 2017. I started my training as a therapist in 2015 while still in school and obtained my license as a registered LMFT in 2020. I continue to seek continuing education and believe that there is always more to learn!
I hold certification in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF CBT) and on the roster to provide Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). I have been skill trained in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialetical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
