Welcome! I have devoted the past 15 years to studying early childhood mental health and parent/child relationships. I am passionate about the importance of early primary relationships between parents and children and the profound impact they have on children's later success.
My approach with families is strength-based and family-centered. I believe each family has its own strengths and assets that can be utilized to assist in healing and succeeding. My services are individually catered to each of my client's needs. Depending on the situation, I offer individual therapy, dyadic therapy with
parent and child, and family therapy. Some of the treatment modalities I utilize include: Play therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment Therapy and more!
I graduated with honors from UC Davis with a degree in Child Development and a minor in Psychology.
I graduated with honors from the University of San Francisco with a master's degree in Counseling Psychology with emphasis on Marriage Family Therapy (MFT). After working with clients for over 3,000 hours, I passed the licensing exams and became a Licensed MFT.
As a clinician, I worked for an intensive in-home early intervention program. I helped families with children who had severe behavioral issues. I also worked in a residential program for abused and neglected children.
Currently, I provide clinical supervision and manage a team of therapy interns that provide therapy to children, families, individuals and couples.
Being a foster parent myself, I have parented children who have been abandoned, traumatized, abused, and neglected and have severe behavioral and emotional issues. I feel that having this first hand experience gives me more insight and empathy for parents living with these issues.
I look forward to meeting you and working together to make positive changes in your child's life and yours.
