About Me

 

As a psychotherapist with a background of 10 years of experience I have assisted children, adolescents, adults, and families overcome difficulties through many significant phases in their lives. My goals for therapy are to guide individuals to challenge change, acceptance, happiness, and the peace that life can offer. I feel Relationships are the MOST IMPORTANT treasures in life. Why I love to do therapy is because I have been given the gift and passion to want to help people better their lives.

 

EDUCATION

California State University, Los Angeles – Undergraduate Studies, Bachelor of Arts

Antioch University, Los Angeles – Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Psychology with focus in Marriage and Family Therapy. M.A, LMFT

 

CLINICAL EXPERIENCE

I worked in a variety of outstanding companies that catered their educational goals and strong, oriented clinical foundations in the mental health spectrum; AADAP; Outpatient, Asian American Drug Abuse Program, Pacific Clinics, Star View Community Services and Drew Child Corporation.

 

These intensive clinical experiences strengthened my understanding and comprehension of substance abuse counseling, working with women and mothers in recovery and group therapy sessions. My experience grew as I worked with adult individuals struggling with severe depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and a wide variety of additional mood disorders and psychotic symptoms. I furthered my experience working with low to severe emotionally disturbed children& adolescents and their families.

 

My background education and expertise have given me extensive tools and knowledge to pursue my journey into private practice.
