About My Clients

I've worked with a wide range adults struggling with mental health and substance use dependency, from the age of 18 to 60+, even younger. It's been a honor and privilege to witness folks make the hardest changes from within and to be a witness to sacred moments of insight, growth, and spiritual experience, while in session. I 'm here to be your witness, to advocate, and honor your process. I look forward to helping become the person you are intended to be.

My Background and Approach

My style can be described as "eclectic" and I am very passionate about working with folks challenged with substance uses issues. My studies for my degree in Counseling Psychology with MFT took me to John F. Kennedy University, completing in 2011, while also completing a certification from UC Berkeley Extension program in Alcohol and Drug Studies in 2010. I’ve gained experience my working in substance use field and mental health in residential treatment centers , outpatient services that helped me maintain my primary focus of integrating various therapeutic modalities, such as Narrative therapy, CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing skills , including various 12-step knowledge, and psychotherapy to work with client’s substance use issues, PTSD, co-dependency, depression, anxiety to support and maintain recovery process. I welcome you to my private practice , Rebel Hearts Counseling, Inc, located in downtown Monterey, CA. I look forward to working with you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Change and growth can happen at any time . I believe that both are on-going process and are met by many challenges by using unhealthy learned behaviors to cope with these challenges. It can be addressed by recognizing the unhealthy behaviors and practice using healthy ones. I spent many years in addiction and there was no change or growth in sight. Until, I hit my own rock bottom, I attended 12-step programs and had my therapy, practicing what I learned to change old behaviors. I haven't used substances in over two decades years and I want you to feel obtain the sense of freedom that I've experience every day. I've also had the blessing to be present for folks, who found a new life, after facing their addictions. It's truly an honor to be a witness to recovery of any kind. I make it a point to do my best to support anyone who choose to change their life--its not an easy task-its one that is on-going, evolving and wondrous.
