I truly love to do the work that I do. In my role as a therapist, I help others move from worry and despair into hope and happiness. As the grey cloud lifts, people tend to accomplish more than they once thought possible, have a new-found appreciation for who they are as a person, and feel a freedom they at one time did not believe to be attainable.
I began my career in the mental health field in 2013. Since then, I have worked with adults, teens, and children while providing individual, group, and family therapy services. My experience includes working in an inpatient psychiatric hospital, community-based settings, non-profit clinics, and schools. Additionally, I have provided crisis intervention services to people struggling with self-harm and suicidality.
Throughout my professional career, I have completed training and supervision in multiple therapeutic orientations. This allows me to provide therapy services that are tailored to your personality, needs, and concerns. I frequently incorporate techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) throughout the therapy process. Studies have found these evidenced-based forms of treatment to be highly effective in reducing the intensity of emotions and treating multiple mental health issues including depression and anxiety.
I currently serve on the Board of Directors as the Communications Chair for the San Diego Chapter of the California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists (CAMFT). I completed my formal education in San Diego, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from San Diego State University and a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology, Marriage and Family Therapy from National University.
