West Los Angeles (Previously Santa Monica)
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been practicing since 2014, working in multiple settings including the community mental health setting, substance abuse residential facilities, and private practice. I have worked with various age groups ranging from as young as 5 years old up to later in life years. I pride myself on being a civil minded therapist, and particularly enjoy working with marginalized populations to guide them in unpacking and healing generational trauma.
I specialize in working with clients diagnosed with depression, anxiety, trauma, parent-child conflict, relationship conflict, anger management, parenting, self esteem and insight building. I recognize that we all struggle and we all deserve to be fully seen, in a non-judgmental space that allows for real self-reflection. I utilize an integrated approach by using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution Focused Therapy, Attachment Theory and Psychodynamic modalities to empower my clients to rediscover their authentic self in order to live in their truth and happiness. Insight is the key, it's just not an easy door to unlock.
