Do you want more out of your life and relationships, yet are unsure of how to make that happen? Do feelings of uncertainty, worry, doubt or fear get in your way? Are you feeling alone or stuck, not sure as to the next step? People come to therapy when they feel overwhelmed because nothing seems to work.
I work with individuals who are dealing with relationship issues, low self-esteem, grief and loss , anxiety , depression, trauma related issues and offer support during difficult transitions. I help people identify and overcome obstacles allowing them to learn healthier ways of moving towards their goals. I believe that everyone has the ability to foster positive change in their lives, yet sometimes having a safe place to process and someone who’ll listen helps them reach their goals quicker.
Completed undergraduate work at California State University Long Beach, earning a Bachelors of Arts in Social Work and later earned a Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy at California State University Dominguez Hills.
Completed my internship at 1736 Family Crisis Center where I worked with adults, adolescents and children from diverse cultural and socio-economical backgrounds helping them deal with issues of depression, anxiety, PTSD and trauma. I also facilitated a Survivors of Domestic Violence Support and Empowerment Group there from 2008-2013.
Additionally, I worked with couples and families at Manhattan Beach Community Counseling Center helping them with behavioral, relationship and communication issues.
