    Extended Biography :

    I have been practicing therapy in Orange County for over ten years. During this time I have devoted my career to helping people overcome their struggles with self-acceptance, difficulty managing emotions, and feeling trapped in unhealthy behavior patterns.
    The insights I've gained in my own journey of healing have helped me to find fulfillment and connection within myself and in my relationships. It has become my passion to help others experience this same type of freedom.
    It is my goal to instill hope and empower my clients to enact change in their lives and access their inner strengths and resources. I am also very comfortable supporting clients with issues regarding faith and spirituality.

    Role In Relation to Clients/Patients:

    In therapy, it is my goal to provide a safe, nurturing environment for my clients to work through challenges and gain skills to enhance their lives. I look forward to accompanying you on your path to growth, healing, and fulfillment.

    I have experience working with the following: self-defeating behavior, unhealthy relationship patterns, difficulty with setting boundaries, assertiveness, overcoming unresolved issues from the past, dealing with anger, anxiety, and depression, trauma and sexual abuse, grief and loss, self-esteem and body image, coping with life transitions, personal growth, addictions and co-dependency.

    I have had a diverse range of experiences in various clinical settings including adolescent residential, community clinics, and treatment programs for adults with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. I have received advanced training in Parent Child Interaction Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
