Marriage & Family Therapist in Westlake Village, CA
I incorporate tailored mind-body approaches to each person so that they can use them as needed when stressful moments show up.
Understanding thoughts, behaviors and actions and finding new ways of coping with them is at the core of cognitive behavioral therapy.
When appropriate, incorporating culturally sensitive therapy is essential in helping support progress sin therapy.
So many people struggle with anxiety and there are a variety of approaches that can be used to help people get the support they need to live more fulfilling lives. I utilize mind body approaches, and have taken specialized trainings specific to anxiety management and treatment. I also bring in other holistic perspectives that are practical, informative and give clients a sense of structure to refer to in between sessions.
As a multiethnic therapist who grew up in a multilingual home, I have both personal and professional experience in supporting clients who experience cultural and systemic oppression. Being witness to cultural and systemic oppression from an early age, has helped shape the work that I do as a counselor and is the reason why I sought specific trainings and internships when becoming licensed.
I have lived with chronic pain and illness the past ten years and this inspired me to provide this specialized therapy care once becoming licensed. I never was able to find a therapist for myself who I felt truly understood what I was going through so this became both a personal and professional goal to specialize in this area to support others living with chronic pain and illness. I also provide caregiver support because these conditions impact the whole family.
