About My Practice
Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in downtown San Clemente. I take pride in helping those who are looking for some extra support while they are experiencing challenges or feeling stuck in some areas of their lives.
Much of my experience has been working with adolescents and families in a residential treatment center as well as on an outpatient basis. I also have experience working at a community health clinic in San Pedro as well as a mental health agency where I saw a diverse group of children, adolescents, and adults. I am passionate about educating others and am currently an adjunct Psychology Professor at Saddleback Community College.
I provide individual therapy and pre-marital/marital therapy for a variety of issues such as: depression, anxiety, adult children of emotionally distant parents, loss of a beloved pet, grief, trauma(PTSD &Complex PTSD) and relationship issues.
I have specialized training in working with members of the military and first responders.
I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is one that needs safety and trust in order to help the client work through issues in a caring and compassionate environment.
Although eclectic in my training, I utilize a trauma informed approach. I am an EMDR Certified and Brain Spotting Trained Practitioner and use them with most of my clients. I will tailor your treatment plan based on your personality and needs.
