Approach & Values

I value the relationship between client and therapist and believe this is one of the most important aspects of the therapeutic process. Therefore, I strive to provide a safe space for my clients, by providing a supportive, validating and on non-judgmental environment, in hopes that they will feel comfortable being their true self.

I recognize that you are the expert of your life and I am here to listen, provide support and help guide you to where you want to be. I believe that therapy is a partnership and we will work together to help you achieve your goals.

I use an eclectic approach to help clients examine past experiences, and how those experiences impact current emotions, behaviors and functioning. With compassion, and a non-judgmental approach, together we will work toward healing, and self-empowerment.

Education

I graduated with a Masters degree in Social Work from CSU Los Angeles in 2009 with an emphasis in Child Welfare.
