LIC NO. 106177

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Registered Art Therapist, and Certified Alcohol Drug Counselor-Certified Addiction Specialist (CADC-CAS). I received my Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy with a concentration in Art Therapy from Phillips Graduate Institute in Southern California. I have been a practicing therapist for about 10 years and strive to create a space for people to feel safe and heard. Primarily, my experience has been in both the private and non-profit sectors of residential treatment. My experience includes working with adolescents, teenagers, and adults with severe mental illness, substance use, and/or legal issues. I have also worked with children, adolescents, teenagers, and their caregiver(s) in school-based settings. I have worked with a variety of consumers from diverse backgrounds dealing with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, impulsivity, anger, substance use, addiction, stress, and trauma. I am familiar with working collaboratively with various agencies (i.e., probation, Department of Child and Family Services, regional center), families and/or caregivers in order to support consumers in reaching their goals. My therapeutic approach is strength based and person-centered with a touch of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, narrative, mindfulness, and expressive arts techniques. I explore and highlight consumers' strengths, abilities, and resources, while at the same time, encourage them to curiously explore personal and systematic blocks and challenges in their lives. I seek to empower consumers through challenging them and using psychoeducation and humor. My interests are working with adolescents, teens, and young adults as they form personal identities and learn to navigate their lives. I am passionate about providing support to those going through life transitions as they find meaning and new identities that may come with them. My hope is to empower consumers to discover and ignite the strength they have within themselves to continue taking steps in building and leading a happy, healthy, and purposeful life.
