I completed my undergraduate work at California State University Long Beach where I earned 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.

Clinical Training

I 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.
