Announcement icon Your mental health is especially important during COVID-19! I offer ONLINE sessions. Lower your risk for anxiety & depression. Live well!
I OFFER ONLINE SESSIONS & Accept New Clients. With increased anxiety and daily stress during the current Corona Virus, I am here to help guide you through this uncertain and continued changing times. As we discover how this pandemic has forced us to restructure our lives, let’s look at how your brain is processing the events. Some big and small daily events could be putting you at risk for negative thoughts about yourself and life. Through EMDR techniques I can guide you to feel less anxious and lower your risk for daily stress & depression. Let’s get you back on track and create harmony back into your life. Choose Happiness.
I also specialize in working with Youths to help them become successful and thrive in their teenage years in the areas of "Self esteem", "Dealing with Parents Divorce", "Behavior Modification" & "Making Good Choices". I am also a published Children's Book author which focuses of teaching youths how to calm their mind and lessen anxiety.
I served as Board of Directors for CAMFT (California Association of Marriage & Family Therapist) from 2015-2019. I’m the CEO of Crystal Counseling Center. Public Speaker. Published Children's Book Author, and Author of two magazine Articles through See Beyond Mag: a Teen Empowerment Magazine.
