I believe that seeking out support for your current difficulties shows strength and courage.

As a therapist, I provide a non-judgemental, empathetic, and supportive environment to explore life’s challenges. My aim is to provide a space of safety, genuineness, and compassion to work collaboratively towards the goals you envision for yourself. I believe you are the expert in your own life. I use a strengths-based approach to identify your concerns and create a constructive plan for your healing and forward movement.

I have experience working with clients living with anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, domestic violence, substance use, grief and loss, and on issues related to: self-esteem, relationships, personal growth, and goal-setting. I also work very effectively with our First Responders (fire, police, emergency personnel). I utilize a holistic and person-centered approach, integrating therapeutic treatments such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, and mindfulness strategies.

I work with clients from adolescence through adulthood. I work exclusively using TeleHealth (phone/video sessions). This is a great option for clients who cannot attend regular office appointments due to work schedules, health conditions, time constraints, and travel expenses. I have found TeleHealth knocks down barriers to allow us to focus on the work!

I have received a Bachelor of Science in Family Studies and Human Development with a minor in counseling from the Univerisity of Arizona. I have also completed my Master of Social Work degree from Cal State Fullerton with an emphasis in community mental health. I have experience working at a domestic violence and human trafficking shelter and service provider, substance use outpatient program, and bereavement program for children. I also have experiencing supervising MSW interns as a field instructor. My educational and professional experiences have prepared me to embark on a therapeutic journey with clients from all different walks of life.

A fun fact about me is I LOVE music! Hip-hop, R&B, and Classic Rock are some of my favorites. I am always looking for new song or artist recommendations so feel free to come to session with some song suggestions!

Ever wondered what a therapy session actually looks like? Or what the first steps are? I share answers to all those questions and more in our recent blog.
