I am a therapist specializing in children and adolescent therapy, individuals, couples and family therapy. I maintain a private practice in Temecula, California. I received my Bachelor in Science in Child and Adolescent Development from California State University Fullerton and my Master in Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Loma Linda University. Before becoming a therapist, I have had the pleasure of working with children in multiple educational settings. I see therapy as a way of helping clients cultivate genuine compassion for themselves. My focus balances an exploration of the client's past strengths and present goals.
I specialize in counseling children and adolescents, individuals, couples and families in a non-judgmental and compassionate manner. I collaborate with clients in coping with interpersonal, problematic relationships, family conflict, parent-child conflict, depression, anxiety/panic disorders, mood disorders, substance dependence/substance abuse, trauma, life transitions, and grief/loss issues.
I have received intensive training and specialization in working with at-risk youth and their families doing Multidimensional Family Therapy. Through applying this therapy, I have seen families work through the most challenging times and strengthen family bonds when little to no hope were seen at the beginning of treatment.
