As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I use systemic thinking to help people change their patterns of interaction to experience new ways of communication within their relationships. I am committed to supporting those working towards discovering their inner strength. My goal is to provide an environment where you feel safe to share your story, embrace imperfections, and reclaim dreams, through nurturing the strength, confidence, and skills you need. With a background in social work, I have extensive experience working with families in crisis, and I have the knowledge of local community resources. I am well versed in working with multicultural populations and have sensitivity for those who have been culturally and socially oppressed. My strengths are in representing the underrepresented populations. I have passion and expertise for working with teenagers and adults as they struggle in their relationships, are going through grief, depression, anxiety, trauma, life changes, and more.
