Working With Me
My interest in becoming a therapist dates back to High School. It seemed like I was always the one others sought out when they had “a problem.” In their words, “I like talking to you; you’re easy to talk to.” So when it came time to start college and pick a major, I knew psychology was the major for me. I obtained my Associates of Arts Degree, bachelor’s degree, and then finally my master’s degree. Once I had my master’s I had an opportunity to work as an intern in a private practice setting. Private practice allowed me the opportunity to provide my clients with the best personal service possible. During that time, I also co-facilitated psychodrama groups at several hospitals as well as lead weekly men’s, women’s and children’s support groups. After working as an intern for several years, I had the opportunity to work for Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, (DCFS).
One of my strengths is my ability to connect with people. I take pride in providing my clients with a safe, nurturing environment free from judgment. I am solution based and come from a position of understanding and empathy. I truly believe that we all have the capacity to change behaviors or circumstances that are getting in the way of our ability to live happy lives. I look forward to taking the journey of change along with you.
