I am a trauma-informed therapist in Orange County, California.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in ,
Supervised by Mary M. Read, PhD, LMFT
A humanistic orientation was embedded in all of the course work to earn my master's degree. This has always been my foundation, with any other therapy approach built on top.
I did research on a feminist approach to working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I sought out a feminist supervisor and strive to learn as much from her as I can.
I have conducted research on working with sexual abuse survivors, provided therapy to survivors, and worked with a large number of survivors in support groups.
I have worked as a therapist in a DV agency. I have volunteered on a DV hotline and provided childcare in a DV shelter. I have facilitated community outreach efforts of a DV agency.
