My areas of focus include psychological assessment, counseling therapy with pediatric, adolescent and adult clients, and African American psychology for clients with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, learning disabilities, blended families, and military or veteran related stressors.
Hi! In a world where so many of us regularly get the message that we are flawed, I think it is important to start by saying something that we might not hear so regularly, which is, that it is okay to be you. But if I’m being honest, being yourself is not always an easy thing to do. As a therapist, I place priority in creating a therapy environment where clients feel safe to share the most authentic versions of themselves without fear of judgement. In addition to a safe therapeutic space, my goal is to assist clients on their paths towards self-expression and self-acceptance no matter where they are in their journey.

As a devoted military wife, I am intimately familiar with the military lifestyle.
Are you struggling through day-to-day life? Are you feeling that there is no hope? Asking for help takes courage, and you have taken the first step towards feeling like yourself again. I provide a supportive and accepting environment that allows you the freedom to express your feelings and a place to feel safe and comfortable. As a wife and mother, I know that life can sometimes be a struggle. I know what it's like to hurt and to be hurt.

My approach is informed by life experience as a woman, mother, stepparent, grandparent, entrepreneur, and military family member.
Although what you are experiencing may feel beyond your ability to cope, you are not alone. Most individuals find comfort knowing that others have been where they are. Many issues faced are in response to some type of loss. Loss takes many forms: loss of self or personal identity, loss of faculties or mobility, the physical loss of a loved one, relationship loss or the lost dream of a perfect marriage or family, or career loss, to name a few. These losses are often sudden, unexpected, or traumatic experiences that can interrupt your life, derail your goals, affect your relationships, and undermine the flow of life transitions.

Avoid the commute and try Online therapy! I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). A very effective and helpful therapy that cuts talk time in half, and focuses on releasing present and past emotional distress. I also use the latest mindfulness techniques, among others, to provide you with a personalizad and comprehensive treatment. It is not uncommon for someone to find themselves in a state of emotional reaction, due to negative childhood experiences, life challenges, trauma or constant relationship problems. This is not only an emotional response, but a physical and spiritual one as well.

I work with clients who are noticing how the negative events and memories of the past are affecting their present lives. This may present as addictions, relational strain, anxiety, stress, or depression. In processing these moments with a therapist, clients can write a new story to decrease the intensity of emotions attached to those incidents.

Often, when experiencing difficulties in life and relationships, it is the stories we tell ourselves and the conclusions we make that bring us the most pain. These false and biased conclusions inhibit our ability to effectively cope and commit to a better way of functioning. I believe that each client is the expert on themselves and consider our work together a collaborative process to learn, understand, grow, and heal. I approach each client with empathy and respect as they maneuver new ways of thinking and feeling.

Therapy. That can be a pretty scary idea. For some there's still a stigma attached to pursuing professional counseling...you have to be crazy, right? Believe it or not, the healthiest, most courageous people I know are in counseling. Why? People in counseling recognize that there is a problem, are willing to work hard to find a solution, and aren't afraid to get their hands dirty in the process. I can't promise you that therapy is easy but I can promise I'll get my hands dirty right along with you. Make the investment in yourself today.

Life can throw us some pretty crazy curves! Often we try every solution from our “playbook” and still end up “losing the game.” We’re unable to pull ourselves out of our current life circumstances because we are trying to escape from the issues unable to face them, move on and heal. Married couples blame one another, parents and kids resent one another, and society provides very little to help us through life's struggles and trauma. I team up with you as we work together to uncover the core issues keeping you "stuck" in life and your relationships and replace these stuck areas with strategies to develop the life you deserve!

My clients arrive with a variety of issues and concerns. However, what most have in common is a need for a better understanding of what led them to the place they currently stand. As a therapist, my goal is to assist my clients as they look to their past, present, and future to examine causes, barriers, and relationships that are affecting where they want to be as opposed to where they are currently. Breaking generational, environmental, and societal curses assist with change. Recognizing this isn't about fault or blame but recovery. I want to assist you as you walk toward the best and most effective self you can be.

Therapy can help you overcome challenges such as addressing negative feelings, making behavioral change, managing a transition, or dealing with grief, loss, and trauma. Therapy is also a great place to learn about strengthening relationships, setting goals, and challenging yourself to be the person you want to be. I have been working with and advocating for individuals, children, and families since 2005. I welcome all clients, but found my techniques to be particularly helpful in working with anxiety, depression, life transition, trauma history, PTSD, grief or loss, and couple & family dynamic issues.

What type of Fullerton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Fullerton?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
