Is sharing your life with a stranger comfortable for you? It's not easy for anyone and yet from my own experience and from the testimony of others (clients/friends/family), therapy has proven to be a positive life-changing experience that I would want for you as well. I count it a privilege to be invited into your life and heart and I wouldn't take that lightly. My goals are to make therapy a "safe place" by welcoming you with empathy, validation, affirmation, assistance and tender care (the way we all want to be treated). Maybe you're suffering from trauma or loss or hurt or...please give me an opportunity to work with you to make your life a new and safe place. I also offer faith-based counseling.
I work with clients who suffer from past or present trauma using TRM (Trauma Resiliency Model) therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing). I also love working with couples using EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy). I work with individuals/couples/families/teenagers and have led many groups including: parenting, codependency/boundaries. We work together to explore your "family of origin" to enhance understanding; I use sand tray therapy for all clients to explore healing insight into my clients' lives; including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, grief, etc.
I have a Master's of Science degree from California State University, Northridge whereby my thesis includes a workbook I created to assist clients with processing shame issues and attachment injuries from their childhood, a process that has been helpful with my clients who have applied it. I would love to work with you to help build a new and more hopeful future together no matter what the issue. You are important to me!
