Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with a wide variety of people in the midst of their own life journey. I focus on client-centered therapy that starts from where the client is, their needs, wants, and goals. By taking a holistic approach to therapy, and working with each individual, couple, family, and child from the foundation of their own narrative, a stronger connection for growth can be created. I am privileged by the opportunity to walk along with my clients through their lives. Together we process challenges, traumas, growings, heartaches, self-improvements, life adjustments, losses, relationship enhancing, re-building, or deepening, and anything else related to their personal experiences. The therapeutic process also helps increase the ability to communicate, process, and cope with all life brings. In therapy, I work with clients to go beyond surviving, through healing, to truly thriving. Our work together is about striving toward a life with peace, filled with joy, and hope. I work with Families, Individuals, Children, and Couples in providing therapy for, and dealing with traumas, anxieties, abuse, childhood developmental and behavioral issues, play therapy, relationship struggles or enhancements, couples therapy, family therapy, child therapy, as well as other related modalities and client concerns. I am a Floor-Time Provider for D.I.R, as well as hold a M.A. in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
