Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is my primary therapeutic approach, and I also have extensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Gottman Couples Therapy, and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT).
I believe that therapy is a sacred space where a client and therapist encounter to make transformative changes as a team. My indescribable joy as a therapist is to witness my clients rise from the misery of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, parenting issues, and troubled relationships. These are my specialties guided by a principle that St. Irenaeus best describes, “a human fully alive is the glory of God.” I help clients connect with their inner potential and resources and build effective coping strategies specific to the personality, lifestyle, and predicament.

My job is to see the world through your eyes, understand as much as I can what is happening to you. I test for symptoms. We find a baseline to get an accurate measure of what you are feeling or experiencing. Once I get that, we move to the next step of deciding together which problem to work on, and we create a priority of problems to address if there is more than one. We work as a team.

My greatest strength and professional interest as a therapist is working with adults from an interpersonal, psycho-dynamic perspective assisting men and women to gain insight and understanding of how their early relationships and emotional experiences have influenced behavioral/relational patterns impacting them today. I assist people in making self-determined changes in their lives in the areas of thinking, feeling and behaving: the three primary components of the human being and how each is expressed and manifested in relationship to others. Spirituality is supported and integrated as my clients are personally inclined.

My experience with  DBT , CBT, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, and Positive Psychology allows me to develop an individualized recipe for success while acknowledging that the relationship built between therapist and client is the foundation for progress.
I am committed to supporting others to create a life they love. My “whole person” approach comes alive while considering all aspects of you when joining your journey in creating a life you look forward to each day. ​ My dedication to meeting others where they are has strengthened my “whole person” approach in building a relationship that fosters trust, safety, unconditional positive regard, and accountability. It also led me to recognize that although people desire to feel happy, happiness looks different for us individually. How does a life you love look like? Let's take the steps to making that your reality.

I believe that counseling is a challenging but rewarding process that requires patience, honesty, and effort from all parties. My priority is establishing a safe, supportive, and trusting environment that fosters genuineness and unconditional positive regard for my clientele. Accepting that counseling is a collaborative process, if this relationship is not established, success in therapy is difficult to impossible. Believe that every person is unique, shaped not only by personal experiences but also by family and cultural stories and that they possess the strength and courage to improve their lives as desired.

What type of La Mirada 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 La Mirada?
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.
