My mission is to assist people create balance and harmony in their life. In a caring, supportive, and confidential environment, I strive to reinstate the whole person to a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
I believe we can all heal, we can all change, we can all learn, and we can all develop new ways of looking at the world.
I work with a variety of issues, and I have worked with diverse populations and people of all age groups. In my practice, I offer: individual, couples, family, adolescent and child therapy. I have experience with: anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, divorce, parenting skills, stress management, relationships, and more.
I am educated in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have an extensive background working with children and adolescents in the foster system with severe traumas. I also have a long history working with couples and individuals with substance abuse problems.
I am a member of American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing International Association (EMDRIA), as well as California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).
