I specialize in working with relationship difficulties, life transitions, setting boundaries, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, substance use , and first responder families.
I know it’s not easy to ask for help. The truth is, everyone feels stuck at some point in our lives and that’s completely normal. We are relational beings and aren’t meant to navigate these challenges alone. Finding a therapist who you connect with is a brave decision that can truly change your outlook on life. Maybe you are struggling with what seems to be an unsolvable problem and are tired of feeling the way that you do. Maybe you feel lonely, unheard, or frustrated in your relationship.

Usually we don't seek help unless we feel we are in some kind of crisis. With that in mind, I am sorry you are here... And yet, welcome. Welcome to the opportunity you are facing to make this hard time turn into strength, competence, satisfaction, peace and connection with yourself and others. Ideally, that is what good therapy does. You might not have the hope that can happen just yet, but I do. It is my belief that everything good is worth working toward. As a therapist, I will work with you collaboratively toward the goals you prioritize.

Are you a person who struggles with balancing work, family, and society's demands? Do you have issues feeling connected to yourself, others, or your children? Do you struggle with anxiety that affects your daily life, relationships, or ability to function? You deserve to feel happier. Now more than ever, people are feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and uncertain about how they're supposed to manage their lives and feel connected. Putting your needs on the back-burner and not taking care of yourself can lead to long-term issues for your mind and body. You shouldn’t have to try so hard to feel better.

At some point we all struggle to adjustment to life's changes; it's normal to feel stuck and I believe people have what it takes to adjust. Couples often come to me for help in distress and are confused about how or why their relationship has derailed. I am dedicated to helping people build stronger; more intimate relationships and I use several modalities when attempting to help couples in distress. A high percentage of my caseload at any given time is comprised of couples.

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.

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.

What type of Torrance 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 Torrance?
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.
