I'm a licensed marriage & family therapist (LMFT) and a CAMFT Certified Supervisor. I earned my master's degree from Chapman University in January 2010, completed over 3,000 hours of clinical experience and passed 2 licensing exams. Since then, I participate in ongoing continuing education trainings and certifications. Some of my recent favorites include Yoga for Trauma, Elaine Aron's Retreat for HSPs and Advanced Skills in Supervising.
I approach my work with clients from a human level. I see us as two people forming a team to help them make the changes they want in their lives. I know the psychology, and they know themselves best. We may laugh, cry, yell, curse or sit in silence together. I focus on connecting with each person and then incorporating the tools or skills to help them reach their goals. I believe strongly in Dr. Irvin Yalom's approach to "create a new therapy" for each client.
