Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 45944
I am a marriage and family therapist and a certified clinical trauma specialist with over 20 years of experience providing culturally competent therapy to adults, teens, families, and groups. I have experience working with a varied client base including adults with serious mental illness, adolescents in residential treatment facilities and the foster care system, and individuals and families in the general community. My expertise includes treating trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and work/career issues among other areas of focus. Dealing with difficult feelings is never easy and working through them can help you find hope and enjoy life again. My approach is to understand your history, how it impacts you, and help you set goals and make choices and changes to ease your path forward. Although exploring distressing emotions and experiences may make you feel vulnerable and anxious, I will be there to guide you through it. I use a combination of evidence-based methods depending upon each situation and some of these include psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and solution focused approaches.
