I work collaboratively with clients: providing a non-judgmental and open-minded space for clients to feel safe sharing their thoughts and feelings while we work together to identify and achieve therapeutic goals. I help clients gain increased self-insight, realize their strengths, and learn new tools to help them work towards increased stability and healing within themselves and their relationships.
I bring an educational background of Communication Studies to my therapy work and particularly enjoy helping clients learn more about assertive communication, problem-solving, and conflict management. I have received additional training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and continue to study neuroscience and rewiring the brain for anxiety coping and distress tolerance strategies.
I value the experience I have gained over the years, working with clients from all over the world, and have put my education in multicultural communication and diversity training to good use as a mental health professional in California.
As an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, I am currently being supervised by Insights Executive Director Sherry Douden, LMFT 42531. At this time, I work exclusively with individual adults, couples, and family units in the afternoons and evenings, M-F, through telehealth (video or phone) sessions.
