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 work with the human psyche! WHETHER LIFE IS ON FIRE OR WHEN PAIN IS TOO STRONG TO BEAR OR IF YOU LOOK FOR PERSONAL DISCOVERY. My ideal client comes in in order to learn about how to tune with his or her psyche. Clients, in depth work, learn about the inner and outer relationships and how to connect with the things that lies underneath. I see clients who are looking for discovery of what exists beyond the behavior and their actions and who are willing to dive into learning about the forces that drive them.

Our relationships are the greatest treasures we have in life. When we feel disconnected in our relationship with ourselves and others, we are more prone to experiencing isolation, dysfunction and pain. While our pain can be a great teacher, feeling stuck and alone on the journey of life can feel hopeless at times. My goal is to walk with you through the healing process and support you in restoring life in your relationship with yourself and others. With a holistic approach to therapy, addressing the needs of the body, mind and soul are vital for restoring connection as we walk together through the healing process.

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.

In the midst of these uncertain and trying times around the COVID-19 pandemic it is easy to find ourselves wrapped up in fear and anxiety. Although these emotions are normal, they definitely are not comfortable, and left unchecked can result in a downward spiral of isolation, disconnection, and depression. First and foremost, I want you to know that you are not alone in this, and encourage you to stay connected to loved ones as best as possible. We are innately built to be resilient, and meaningful interpersonal connections are the avenues for such strength. However, sometimes we can have that and still be overwhelmed with fear.

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.
