Founder/CEO, Executive Director
LMFT, (PsyD In Progress) #93409
I am a bilingual (Spanish/English) speaking therapist. I am an alumni from California State University Dominguez Hills and Azusa Pacific University. I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapist. I am currently completing my Doctoral Degree from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
I am a wife and a mother to three boys. I identify myself as a Christian therapist. I believe in the integration of spirituality and mental health. I have been a sole proprietor since August 2016. I have worked in community mental health since 2005.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Managing & Adapting Practices (MAP), Trauma, Motivational Interviewing, CORS, FOCUS, Assessment and Diagnosis of children 0-5 (ICARE), Couples Therapy using Gottman Method and Relationship Enhancement skills. I am also trained in using Sand Tray Therapy.
My approach is integrative. I pull interventions from various models to find your own, unique treatment plan to suit your needs. Therapy is not a "one size fits all" it is very unique to your needs. If I have to choose I would say I tend to incline to "Client-Centered Therapy". I believe in working as a team. You are the EXPERT of YOUR life.
My goal is to assist you to achieve your highest potential. In life, we have seasons. Some seasons are easier than others. I strive to provide a unique treatment for you. To work in partnership with you and achieve your highest potential.
I am also a certified Relationship Enhancement Therapist.
