Registered California Licensed Marriage Family Therapy -#131145

I work with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples. I provide clients a safe  space to access and better utilize their innate strengths, develop new skills and invite  new perspectives to create change. 

I meet my clients where they are at, with warmth and unconditional positive regard and  use humor when appropriate. My sessions are trauma-informed, judgement-free,  client-driven and insight developing. I pull from family systems (because no one grows  up in a vacuum), person-centered, CBT, DBT, Gottman and mindfulness practices. 

The issues I treat are depression, anxiety, marital/relationship issues, difficult divorces  & other life transitions, sexuality issues, self-esteem challenges, parenting, addiction/ eating disorders, ADHD, personality disorders, trauma, creating healthy relationships  and anger management. 

I have two MA degrees, one in Psychology from Phillips Graduate University, the other  in Asian Studies from California State University, Long Beach. I completed my BA in  Political Science and International Relations at University of California, Santa Barbara. I  lived and traveled throughout Asia and still love to travel. My educational background  and personal life experience give me a unique multi-cultural and worldly perspective  that is often helpful to clients.  

I look forward to discussing your therapeutic goals with you. I can be reached at and at (424) 284-8480.
