I'm a licensed clinical therapist in California with 5 years of professional work experience. My therapy style is mixed, although pleasant and educational. I believe in being truthful with my clients. I believe in treating them with respect and compassion. However, I’m able to tailor sessions and treatment plans to meet your unique needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life. Making a decision to take the first steps towards a change can be scary. I am here to support and empower you in that journey.

I love helping people solve their problems.
I love to travel either alone or with family/friends. I also enjoy spending time with my niece and nephew.
I enjoy working out daily. I also enjoy sitting in my sauna while listening to music.
I recharge by taking some alone time to just binge watch my favorite shows and unplug from all electronics.
