Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 91075
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) at Foresight Elk Grove. I received my Master’s Degree in Community Counseling, and Marriage, Family and Children Counseling, from California State University of Sacramento. In my years of experiences working in different positions, in outpatient community-based settings, and inpatient psychiatric hospitals work with various populations and age ranges, I have pursued my passion for supporting individuals in changing their lives and implementing safe and healthy coping skills for long-term recovery. My education, and both lived and serviced experiences have taught me the importance of being honest, open-minded, compassionate, patience, reliable, dependable and helpful. My specialty areas include adolescent issues, school issues, crisis intervention, family conflict, depression, social anxiety, parenting, anger management issues, and trauma. I want to equip my clients with the hope that it is normal to feel any and every kind of emotion but also give them tools to cope effectively and learn from those emotions. I approach therapy from a trauma-informed, strength based, client-centered lenses, focused on empathy, compassion, and safety to create long-term, effective changes. My approach to therapy is to provide a safe and trusting environment to uncover those human emotions, find what works or does not work, and collaborate to reach new and healthier goals for life. I have experience working with adolescents, children, adults and older adults utilizing interventions from cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed therapy approaches, coping skills, strengths-based approaches, solution-focused work, and mindfulness practices.
