I became a therapist because I believe in making the world a better place, helping one person at a time. From a very young age, I learned the value of social justice and helping others from my family. I volunteered a lot growing up, helping the elderly and my community.
My therapy style includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution Focused, culturally sensitive, Family Systems, grief, humanistic, integrative, interpersonal, life coaching, multicultural, person-centered, reality therapy, Strength-Based, and Trauma-Focused. I have been practicing therapy for over 20 years, and have been licensed for over 15 years.

I have a 5-year-old rescue dog that we adopted from a shelter. My daughter and I went to San Diego (2.5 hours from my house) to meet the dog and see if my daughter connected with her, and a few weeks later we adopted her.
