I understand how difficult it can be in searching for a therapist that feels like the right fit. The most important thing to me, and about my approach, is that the relationship between myself and my clients is equally as important as providing services. I use an easy manner, warmth, honesty, humor (as appropriate), and a direct approach when working with clients. My goal is to provide a safe emotional environment that is optimal for healing. I understand how much courage it can take to be vulnerable and asking for help. I want my clients to be able to feel heard, acknowledged and empowered to make effective changes towards a meaningful life. I have experience with different treatment modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic and Post-Modern approaches. I tailor my treatment approach to what elicits the most effective outcomes for my clients.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the San Fernando Valley. I started my career in the helping profession as a residential counselor, then moved to working as a Detention Services Officer for the LA County Probation Department, working with at risk youth. Throughout my profession, I have worked with individuals suffering from severe emotional disturbance, anger and poor impulse control, victim's of crime, children in the school setting, and individuals struggling with addiction. My passion is to assist individuals through the process of healing, growing and leading a meaningful and purposeful life.
