"My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and find more helpful ways of living. I offer a collaborative and client-centered approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs and cultural backgrounds to help attain the personal growth you're striving for. Your life experiences and history contribute to your individual uniqueness.

"I believe that the start of change is through self-awareness! Being aware of triggers from past wounds may guide people at a conscious level to explore an understanding of what is occurring at their unconscious level. Unconscious memories from past wounds can at times control and influence someone\'s current thought patterns, emotions and behaviors. Processing past wounds in therapy may give you more control over problematic cognitive, behavioral, and emotional patterns. I believe that people are doing the best that they can do with what they have learned. "

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Poway 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
