In my practice, I assist you to develop and use your strengths to improve your relationships and yourself through self-exploration and guidance. Using an integrative Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach, I work with those who struggle with depression and anxiety related to career/work, interpersonal relationships, medical conditions, disease, pre/post op surgery; injuries. Making collaborative efforts, I will help you become consistent in achieving your individual goals. Through a safe and supportive environment, I believe in the importance of devising a clear, and realistic plan for treatment that is personalized for your particular symptoms and struggles.
After working for Dignity Health as a Marriage and Family Therapist Trainee, I opened my practice 6 years ago, successfully working with individuals and couples who are ready to move towards change in their lives, though may be struggling with taking those first steps.
I also have a particular concentration in working with individuals and their fears, accompanied with high anxiety. I take a unique approach to working with those who wish to decrease symptoms related to these fears with an ultimate goal to eventually eliminate the fear through intense brief exposure treatment.
