I also assist in your healing process by utilizing CBT, mindfulness , and Solution Focused Therapy.
Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

​That is why my approach is mindfulness -informed and grounded in evidence-based practices.
Although some days seem fine, you find yourself thinking about something and you can't seem to stop. You feel down, even hopeless at times. Memories and thoughts make it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep at night. You find yourself avoiding places, people, or things that make you feel uncomfortable, fearful, or anxious. You may have difficulty concentrating at work or school and being present with yourself or others. By identifying, processing, and addressing what is causing your discomfort, we can work toward feeling whole, at peace, and empowered to live the life that you want for yourself again.

We can work together to cultivate trauma recovery using techniques including polyvagal theory, mindfulness meditation, somatic psychology, and CBT.
Are you struggling with anxiety and trauma and turning towards unhealthy coping mechanisms in an attempt to manage your emotions? Now is a trying time for almost everyone, and if you have a trauma background what's coming up in the current environment may be reminiscent of the stress, isolation, and fear induced by early childhood experiences. You don't have to handle this alone, and with clinically tested techniques to regulate the mind and body, it's possible to shift from a place of disempowerment to strength.

Additional approaches that I utilize are psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness .
Life can feel overwhelming. Therapy can be a collaborative space where we look into issues that you would like to address. We can find ways to make life feel more manageable and, ultimately, more enjoyable. The quality of the therapeutic relationship itself has been shown to significantly influence treatment outcomes. I lead with a humanistic approach, which emphasizes authenticity and the idea that growth can happen while in an environment that is nourishing. My goal is to help my clients feel understood and empowered. Through this process, you may step into greater self-discovery and self-acceptance.

I specialize in CBT, Solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness .
Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

I primarily use Play Therapy, Mindfulness , and/or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with these clients and tailor each method to the client's needs.
I have been working in the field since 2014 and throughout my time I have worked with adults, children/teens, and individuals with neurodivergence. When working with my clients I make sure to tailor therapy to meet their needs including: finding ways to make interacting with their world easier and more manageable, developing coping skills, and working on communication skills. I aim to empower my clients and help them realize that they are amazing and capable. When possible I also try to incorporate the family dynamic into treatment as family is an important factor.

There will also be great emphasis on the concept of mindfulness , as the client sets their current goals and expectations from his or her therapeutic journey.
I am a licensed Psychologist in California since Feb 2011. I graduated from UCLA with a Bachelors degree in Psychology. I got my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2005 from CGI. I am bilingual and have over 15 years of experience in several clinical settings, including: college counseling center, private setting, community outpatient rehab center and in prison mental health facility. I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative process between client and therapist. In this therapeutic journey, the patient will gain insight into their current thought process/outlook, that has resulted in their daily pattern of behaviors/decisions.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
