As a psychotherapist with, 18 years of experience, I have assisted children, adolescents, adults, and families overcome difficulties through many significant phases in their lives.

I feel Relationships are the MOST IMPORTANT part of our lives. I feel I have been blessed with a gift and a mission to help people better their lives.
California State University, Los Angeles – Undergraduate Studies, Bachelor of Arts
Antioch University, Los Angeles – Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Psychology with focus in Marriage and Family Therapy. M.A, LMFT
I have worked for a variety of outstanding companies, including AADAP Outpatient, Asian American Drug Abuse Program, Pacific Clinics, Star View Community Services, and Drew Child Corporation.
These intensive clinical experiences strengthened my understanding and comprehension of substance abuse counseling (working with women and mothers in recovery and group therapy sessions). My experience grew as I worked with adults struggling with severe depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and a wide variety of additional mood disorders and psychotic symptoms. I furthered my experience working with low to severely emotionally disturbed children and adolescents and their families.
My background education and expertise have given me extensive tools and knowledge to pursue my journey into private practice.
Treatment Approach / Orientation: Eclectic
I enjoy using a wide variety of approaches, depending on the individual and its particular case and circumstance: Existential/Humanistic, Satirian, Gestalt, Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems, Brownian, Structural, Strategic, Psychodynamic & Post Modern Approaches.
