I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist with a Master of Science Degree in Marriage Family Therapy from California State University – Dominguez Hills, CA. I work with children, adolescents, and adult clients on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, anger, ADHD/ADD, communication, relationship problems, trauma, work related stress, and life transitions. I have also worked in the community helping individuals and families to learn the coping strategies to lead more productive lives. My years of working in a major corporation has taught me that sometimes we get “stuck and burned out” in our jobs due to no fault of our own. However, this issue can eventually lead to depression, anxiety, and other unhealthy issues ultimately impacting our personal relationships.
I listen to you in a non-judgmental manner, validate your concerns, guide your discovery, and work collaboratively to develop treatment goals that provide healthy outcomes for you. In the initial phase of therapy, a lot of focus will be given to understanding you and explore your personal history (including childhood and family of origin.) This will help me understand your life story and provide insight into patterns in your life which led you to the path you are on today. I will assist you in learning effective problem solving techniques to allow you to develop solutions to life issues.
