A COLLABORATIVE SPACE WHERE PROBLEMS ARE THE PROBLEM AND PEOPLE HAVE THE SOLUTION
Overcoming challenges through preferred storytelling
"The most powerful therapeutic process I know is to contribute to rich story development." - Michael White
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in Orange County, California. It is an honor for me to work as a therapist and witness the courage demonstrated by clients during each session. Therapy became my career after several years in corporate America and after recognizing a need to encourage people to find space for their mental well-being. In addition to my years in corporate America, I dedicated time and resources to working with teenagers and young adults through various non-profit organizations.
Mental health matters and I recognize my part in moving that ideology forward. In addition to my private practice and work with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapist, I serve as an adjunct faculty member for California State University San Bernardino. My academic training includes an M.A. in Clinical Psychology (Pepperdine University) and a B.S. in Organizational Leadership (Biola University). As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am committed to working with individuals, couples, and families.

Clients are welcome to enter a space where empathy, compassion, and understanding are present. I work with adolescents and adults, individuals and couples.
Anxiety, depression, spiritual identity, shame, couples counseling, coping skills and relational issues
Narrative theory is the approach I use when working with clients. The theory provides “an evolving collection of ideas, practices that inform a respectful, collaborative and non-pathologising approach to working with people, families, and communities.” My work seeks to be multicultural, diverse, and affirming for all clients.
