I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, #53455. I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University and have a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology with an emphasis in racial and ethnic stratification from UCLA. I started my experience and training in 2006, volunteering at the Southern California Counseling Center (SCCC). There I worked with teens/adolescents, adults, couples, and families. At SCCC, I completed two years of specialized training in their School Based Program, working with teens at a local High School. I also completed the SCCC Family/Couples Training Program which provided a solid foundation for helping families and couples in need. In addition, I provided counseling through the SCCC Free Cognitive Behavioral Clinic where I was able to utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients through rough patches in their lives. My professional training at SCCC also included Somatic Experiencing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Art Therapy, Family Systems, Solution-Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness, Attachment Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy to name a few.
