What is your style/approach to therapy?

My first approach is to make sure the client knows there's no issue too big to work toward an effective outcome. My style is that we collaborate together on all issues/problems in which the client feels they are making progress toward a healthier person. I use the necessary strategies to assist in accomplishing a better tomorrow for you. I use CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, Attachment therapy, trauma-informed, but other approaches to fit the client's need. Your emotional and inner peace is important to me, and I will be committed to working together to find a better future.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

My compassion for people has led me to this profession. Everyone has their own story. Each person's story is different, and circumstances have created issues or concerns. I feel it is imperative to hear and understand from the client’s perspective. Creating a non-judgmental style atmosphere in counseling. My hope is that your self-worth, self-esteem, and accomplishments become your most valuable assets.

What does a first session with you look like?

In the first session, you may be feeling a lot of distress. My objective will be to provide a calming, safe environment to gather information to determine your symptoms, emotions, behaviors and build bonding with you as a client /therapist relationship. You may ask any specific question, discuss therapy, your treatment, or any concerning issues you may have. I will assess and identify any imminent issues and address them. We will reflect on motivation, the importance of self-reflection, and self-growth.

Work History

I received my degree in Master of Science in Counseling and a licensed MFT. I started providing mental health service at College hospital in 2009 with outpatient clients. I worked there for ten years. I was fortunate enough to work with a variety of populations that range from mild to severe. Working with individuals, couples, families has given me the experience and expertise to provide coping skills, achievable goals, treatment plans, and intervention that produced results. I specialized in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and trauma. I have worked with individuals who experience suicidal ideations, codependency, family conflict, PTSD, Borderline personality, dual diagnosis, etc. I worked for three years with Foothill Aids for individuals that deal with HIV and within the LGBTQI community. I have volunteered and worked with homeless and incarnated individuals. Before the pandemic, I spoke at faith-based churches on mental health and contracted with Kaiser. I am a certified anger management facilitator and have a certificate in DBT. My therapy approaches are CBT, DBT, Attachment-based, trauma-informed, and other strategies that meet the client’s need. It is a pleasure to work in this profession. I work with integrity and have great compassion for my clients.
