15 years of experience
Solution oriented

I am licensed in California with 15 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, lgbtq+ related issues, motivation, self-esteem, and confidence, & depression. I am also a published author with mindfulness/meditation planners and coloring books available on Amazon. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage, and I am proud of you for getting started!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, we'll start with brief introductions and discuss your challenges. We will select the issue that is most impacting your life. Depending on the issue or issues, we will explore your life overall and what coping strategies/skills you currently have and use. From there, we will develop a plan to help you navigate this situation, develop additional coping or communication strategies, and implement strategies in follow-up sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having worked in community clinics, schools, and universities, I have developed a master framework for assisting clients that includes a variety of strategies, activities, and interventions to assist with anxiety, ADHD, depression, communication, and relational difficulties.

My treatment methods

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

I utilize ACT with clients who struggle to accept that their struggle with understanding and processing their feelings might be helping them respond appropriately in certain situations, i.e. listening to a gut feeling or intuition.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I have used CBT for over a decade to help clients manage their anxiety and depression, reduce intrusive thoughts, and create inner peace.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

I have been using MBT practices with clients for the last five years to reduce anxiety and improve executive functioning, making clients calmer and more productive throughout their day.
