I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (License #51229) in San Diego, CA. I offer psychotherapy and mental health services to individuals, couples, and families. I currently provide these services in North County (San Marcos).
I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been working in the mental health field providing therapy since 2008. My training and work experience includes mood disorders, relationship distress, adolescent issues, trauma/ abuse, employee/student work-life balance, substance use/ addiction, and chronic mental illness.
My clinical experience has been in a variety of private and non profit settings with a broad spectrum of clients. I have worked at a biopsychosocial clubhouse, adult residential crisis center, outpatient county mental health clinic, adolescent residential day treatment center, employee assistance program, psychiatric hospital, elementary school, private college, and private practice.
I served as clinical supervisor to unlicensed therapists and students/ interns employed by Community Research Foundation from 2019-2021 and with Mental Health Systems from 2019-2020.
I offer a safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental place for clients to share their thoughts, feelings, struggles, and concerns. My therapeutic style is empathetic, collaborative, and client-centered. My therapeutic approach is eclectic; meaning I conceptualize and use interventions from multiple treatment orientations in order to best treat each client. I believe that clients are the expert of themselves. Therefore my role is to provide objective feedback, support, and guidance in order to help clients effectively resolve issues of concern and improve overall functioning and life satisfaction.
