Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in the treatment of adolescents, individuals, and couples experiencing a wide variety of psychological, behavioral, and relational problems. In my Pasadena office, I strive to create a safe, caring, and supportive environment, combined with a seasoned clinical approach.

Parenting a teenager is not easy. Being a teenager is complicated.

I have done intensive research on the sociological, physiological and psychological perspectives of teens. Most importantly, I pride myself in understanding the way teenagers perceive the world and relate with how each teen is unique as their fingerprints. This is a very confusing time filled with struggles of adolescent identity, change and loss. A most important loss is the changing relationship between the adolescent and parent. My focus is two-fold: the wellbeing of the teenager and the wellbeing of the parent/teen relationship.

A large emphasis of my practice is also in helping individuals and couples understand how often one remains “stuck in adolescent behavior” beyond the teen years and it’s affects on relationship.
