I use aspects of psychodynamics, cognitive behavior, attachment, mindfulness, family systems and interpersonal theories to create an accepting and nonjudgmental space.
* TELETHERAPY PROVIDED AT A SLIDING SCALE* The self can be the source of much mystery and turmoil. Unexpected life events, interpersonal troubles, and difficult transitions can leave you feeling lost. Sometimes we can lean on our community and other resources, but it can be tough to find a safe space to explore our true needs and feelings. In a world where everybody has an opinion, an unbiased perspective can be hard to find. Therapy can be a transformative experience of acknowledging Self and finding a higher level of functioning.

I'm trained in family systems therapy and treating trauma in children and adolescents.
*LGBTQ+ affirmative* Are you afraid to speak up or be your true self for fear of what others will say or do? Do you wish your family communicated more effectively, your kids would respect you and your rules, or you could get your teen to open up to you? Do you constantly give to others to the point of exhaustion or until you snap and wonder when it’s your turn to receive? If any of these scenarios fit your current struggles, I can help. When you reclaim your true voice and begin to use it thoughtfully and purposefully, you can lead a more authentic, balanced, and fulfilling life.

I integrate family systems with various evidenced based theories and modalities depending on the needs and goals of the client, from brief solution focused to deeper, lengthy work for insight and healing.
I am a firm believer that I cannot do my clients’ work for them. It is a collaborative effort, in the best interest of the client, and with the client who is ready for change, and willing to do the work. Therapy is a commitment, a risk, and takes courage. As client participates in therapy I am committed to utilize my education, experience , and expertise to partner with client for positive change.

Kindness is your curse. Think of others before yourself, they said. Stop being selfish. The more you weigh opinions, the more you feel disconnected from yourself. You've noticed the joy you once felt from giving is feeling empty and obligatory. You are drained with said and unsaid demands others place on you without a word. Instinctively, you feel therapy with someone unbiased could help and even have offered this advice to others, but you get caught up in thinking you're too privileged to want more in your life. After all, you know people have it worse than you. Heck, your parents had it way worse than you.

When you felt bad as a kid, who did you talk to? Was it okay to talk about what you needed? Did you feel seen, heard, and acknowledged? The way our feelings and needs were handled or ignored as a child has a big impact on just about every element in our lives today - relationships, how we communicate, reaching goals, even our self-image. If you struggle with finding a partner, managing relationship conflict, negative self-talk, codependency, and expressing yourself authentically these can be related to early experiences in your family. It's likely that you came up with some coping strategies that worked back then but don't today.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Monrovia view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
