Westlake Village (Previously Thousand Oaks)
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who graduated from Lincoln Christian University having experience working in private practice, non-profit, and community based mental health settings. I have over 5 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families from diverse ethnic, cultural, religious, and personal identity backgrounds. Based on client need, I utilize evidenced based practices such as CBT and Solution-Focused Therapy as well as other affective therapeutic approaches from my varied training.
I create a warm and welcoming environment in every session by expressing humor, empathy, and acceptance. I believe in empowering clients to create their desired story and have input in the therapeutic process. I am passionate about creating a safe space where individuals and families can thrive while becoming who they desire to be. During sessions, I create a collaborative environment rich in learning and compassion encouraging clients to savor their journey of growth. You will often hear me provide helpful reminders and short sayings to assist you in remembering to have self-compassion and use self-reflection throughout the week. In each session, I show that I believe that anything is possible when life is approached with collaboration, authenticity, and a willingness to learn.
