Therapy Support for College-Aged Students, Postpartum Mothers, & Kids/Adolescents
Welcome! With nearly 10 years of schooling and experience behind me, I have pursued my passion in working with others by becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have had the desire to help others in some capacity since I was young. I went to San Diego State University for my bachelor's in Psychology and minor in Business Administration. I continued on to get my Masters in Clinical Psychology Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Azusa Pacific University.
My clinical experience includes working for a university as a therapist in the wellness center, a school setting for adolescents with behavioral issues, and in private practice working with various clientele. I have worked with children, teens, adults, couples, and families ranging from ages 5 to 65. I have counseled client’s with various challenges including abuse, addiction, anxiety, crisis, depression, grief and loss, family dynamics, relational issues, stress, self-image, substance abuse, and life transitions.
For those clients that are faith based, I can incorporate Christian practices for those that desire it. I also have experience working with clients with a variety of religious backgrounds I embrace and welcome diversity in my practice.
I have a focused approach using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic, Internal Family Systems, and Solution Focused Therapy. I am trained in Level 1 Gottman Therapy and Play Therapy, and currently training as an EMDR therapist.
I grew up in San Diego and moved to Huntington Beach for grad school. I love traveling with my family and love my role as a wife, mother, and therapist. I enjoy playing sports ranging from soccer to beach volleyball to swim. Some of my favorite things to do include spending time outside whether it is hiking, being in the mountains, taking a stroll through the park, or going to the beach; as well as volunteering at our church with youth ministry.
I would love to chat with you a little more and schedule a time for us to meet. Please give me a call or send an email. I look forwarding to speaking with you!
