I am a registered marriage and family therapist. It is my calling to help individuals, couples, and families overcome life's difficulties and challenges. My aim is to build a trusting, safe, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship that restores hope, and an enhanced sense of meaning in life.
My experience as a therapist include helping families, couples, and individuals to treat anxiety/depression, PTSD, crisis intervention, sex trafficking, child abuse, domestic/intimate partner violence and Bipolar Disorder. My personal life journey has provided an in-depth understanding and wisdom that can help others overcome life difficulties.Supervised by Kira Monterrey, LCSW, MPA, CFTP, CA License # LCSW81553
I specialize in trauma-related disorders. I am an Air Force Veterans, and prior to seeing clients in a private practice setting, I provided trauma-focused psychotherapy services for over 1,000 combat Veterans, military sexual trauma Veterans and their family members when I worked for the Department of Veteran's Affairs Vet Center program.
I have have helped many individuals overcome posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and anger, low self-esteem and more. I have worked extensively with clients who suffer from traumatic brain injury and chronic pain issues to achieve success in meeting their goals. My goal is to help you achieve success in securing the life you envision and deserve.

The most important story you will ever write is your own.
Every chapter of your life is an intrinsic part of the one of a kind story of you. Everyone has a unique experience that is to be validated and acknowledged. Every person is the author of their life and deserves to write a fulfilling masterpiece. Sometimes the narrative is not clear. Factors such as stress, unexpected changes, relationship or career disruptions, or moments requiring important decisions can lead us to think our present circumstances as permanent. Yet each moment presents choices that shape the quality of our lives. Often, when feeling overwhelmed, support from an objective and empathetic perspective can help a person find greater clarity and insight to deal directly with a particular life challenge.
As an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT), my passion is to help women and families navigate transitions and/or overcome challenges impacting quality of life. My work is solutions oriented and focused on (1) women struggling with adjustments to sudden or milestone life changes, (2) families raising children with ADHD needing support in resolving concerns and strengthening positive relationships at home, and (3) family therapy for adult children and parents experiencing inter-generational cultural dissonance, especially connected to life transitions.
Clients are supported to focus on their personal strengths by cultivating healthy coping skills needed in times of change and uncertainty. My style is based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) informed counseling and Narrative Therapy. My approach is structured and evidence-based with an emphasis on understanding patterns and monitoring progress. Therapy with me is a client centered collaborative process. You are the expert on you. My role is to help you through the process of accessing your innate gifts, talents, and skills.
My practice reflects my multicultural life experiences being born overseas, being a child immigrant in a bilingual (English-French) country far from my birthplace, to arriving in the United States as an immigrant for a second time in adulthood. Adapting to new environments and situations have been a constant theme from childhood. Since my late teens, I have lived in diverse metropolitan areas and deeply appreciate the variety of cultures, languages, religions and customs in the world. So far, travels have taken me to Canada, South Korea, and England, among others. Supervised by Kira Monterrey, LCSW, MPA, CFTP, CA License # LCSW81553
Our focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths throughout counseling. We achieve this by providing a nonjudgemental safe space, listening to your concerns, and focusing on your treatment goals in therapy.
Our goal in therapy is to help you capitalize off of your strengths, grow and heal from pain, to improve functioning, quality of life, and to help you and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
