Registered California Associate Marriage Family Therapy -AMFT #106436
Supervised by Amy Gandin LMFT #40831
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and at (424) 284-8480.
