Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I believe in meeting people where they're at, offering the tools I have in support of overcoming obstacles, working collaboratively with individuals to achieve the outcome that is desired. My work is done through a strength-based approach, promoting the individual's resiliency and the unique gifts they hold. I have a variety of ways to help people overcome obstacles and achieve alleviation of symptoms, as well as to reach a higher functioning and potential. Various methods and interventions are integrated according to one's unique set of circumstances. These methods include EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral interventions, assigning assignments to practice at home, Expressive Arts Therapy Modalities, and Transcendental Methods. I have extensive experience working with children, families, parents, adults and adolescents; my expertise includes child development, behavioral concerns, treatment along the autism spectrum, trauma, attachment difficulties, socialization concerns, adjustment in children, and stage of life issues. I provide collaborative services with schools, educational support and education and direct intervention training to caregivers in working with behavioral concerns. My services include individual, family and dyad sessions, group work and intensives which include intervention training on specific topics my clients request monthly, as well as phone consultation services during to help manage escalating situations. My educational background started at Univeristy of California, Berkeley, where I received a B.A. in Psychology, continued to San Francisco State University where I received my M.A. in Counseling, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Lastly, I completed EMDR training through John F. Kennedy University at the Berkeley campus, and received consultation by April Wise, MFT.
