Making the decision to endeavor on the journey to happiness is not always easy.  Counseling & therapy can be intimidating or embarrassing, especially if for a first time patient.  The blunt truth though is this: everyone needs help at some point in their lives;   everyone needs someone objective to talk to.  If you are even considering seeking help, I would love to speak to you & best of all; the first 20 minute phone call is free.

With over 10 years of experience working with families, adults, and youth to help achieve the life they want to live. I have successfully treated survivors of intergenerational trauma, anxiety, depression and stress drawing from various therapeutic approaches. Specialties include  EMDR, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral therapy, family systems, motivational interviewing, crisis management and solution-focused therapy.

 

I have received extensive training in family-centered therapeutic models including Attachment Regulation Competency therapy which is geared towards increasing attainment, identifying skills to regulate, and fostering ways for resilience in individuals, families, and various caregiving systems (i.e., biological, foster, residential) who have experienced complex trauma.

 

I have worked in a private practice setting with adults experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, or going through a phase of life transition. I have also worked in community mental health and special education with families and children and specializes in writing educationally related mental health assessments for students that qualify for special education.

I received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Human Development from the University of California, Davis and a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of San Francisco.
