A Bit About Therapy
Personalized Attention for You and Your Family
I implement effective, evidenced-based therapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. Therapy can help us develop new coping skills, problem solve, and change our feelings and behaviors. I offer child, family, and adult therapy in San Diego and specialize in trauma, depression, and anxiety work with children and as well as parent support and coaching.
Get to Know Me
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with a private practice in San Diego. I have an undergraduate degree from the University of California at San Diego and a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from National University, from which I graduated Summa cum Laude. I work with children, adolescents, and families, with a focus on childhood trauma, depression, anxiety, and behavioral challenges. I work with parents/caregivers and children together to create an individualized treatment plan that supports each member while healing the family as a whole.
I have experience working in education-based support services as a school-contracted counselor. There I aided families to help schools and teachers meet students' individualized academic, social, and behavioral goals, including helping families navigate the IEP process. I have training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and am nationally certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am certified in Positive Discipline therapy and integrate parent/caregiver coaching into my work with children. I utilize art, play, music, and biblio therapy into my work with youth and utilize a holistic approach by incorporating mindfulness and healthy lifestyle modification into treatment. I also served on the Board of Directors for the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, San Diego chapter.
I offer flexible morning, daytime, and evening appointments. I am available via telehealth and can schedule a secure, private video call. If you have any questions or are ready to schedule an appointment, you can call my office at (619) 738-2026.
