I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and professional clinical counselor based in Southern California. I offer client-centered therapy specializing in the treatment of anxiety, depression, addictions and cultural adaptation through the therapeutic tools of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
I have a long history of clinical and educational roles within private, non-profit and institutional settings. I hold an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Communication Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles and a Masters degree in Psychology from California Southern University completing a practicum at the University of Pepperdine’s PRYDE counseling diversion program. In addition to being licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), I have an adult education teaching credential with an emphasis in teaching foreign languages (TESOL) from the University of San Diego. I was employed by Orange County of Education alternative/correctional and special education programs that enabled me to work with at-risk population and utilize the power of mental healthcare systems to facilitate achievement. I also worked as an addiction specialist within the Providence health care system. I am a client-centered therapist versed in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) specializing in anxiety, depression addictions and dual diagnosis.
