My Story

I am a Psychotherapist in Mission Viejo, California. I have been working in the counseling field since 2015. I have worked with a variety of people which include children, adolescents, adults, couples, domestic violence and trauma survivors, LGBTQ, homeless, substance recovery, and alternative lifestyles. Although I service a range of needs, I have experience with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, domestic violence, LGBTQ, and alternative lifestyles. I have worked with children, focusing on play therapy and creating a team with parents and teachers to best support the client. I have worked with adolescents, using a mix of evidence-based therapy and play therapy. I have worked with adults struggling with depression, PTSD, bipolar, anxiety, and currently work at an inpatient hospital. What I have learned working with variety of people is that all clients are different and need a customized treatment plan to focus on what they are struggling with. I view our time together as a collaborative team. I focus on being empathetic, supportive, nonjudgmental, mindful, and a good listener. I am open to all cultures, individual styles, therapeutic needs, and have the flexibility that comes with many different types of people.

My own personal life experiences, relational challenges, struggles and my continuing education/training provide me with experience, knowledge, and dedication to be the person and therapist I want to be. Honestly, it is not always easy to face our challenges, but I am available to support you in your life’s challenges and goals in becoming the person you want to be. I look forward to working with you!
