I am a life-long student and continue to enrich and expand my experience by continuing to educate myself in various certifications, techniques, and philosophies emerging in the field of psychology, spirituality, metaphysics, and eastern/western thought.

In over six years of combined education and experience, I have worked with hundreds of clients from all walks of life, which has provided with a deep insight and a practical view of the problems people face in contemporary times, with regards to professional and personal life. Whether it is depression due to lack of respect and recognition at work, death of a close family member, emotional distress due to separation, addiction, sexual dysfunction, loss of a job, or any other issue that is affecting your mental health negatively.

My approach is collaborative and holistic. I combine psycho-bio-social-spiritual attention, which collectively provides a personal approach to feeling better.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT #96155 and a certified life coach from The Coaches Training Institute. I hold current memberships at the American Association of Couples and Sex Therapist (AACAST), the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapist (CAMFT) and the local chapter (LA-CAMFT).
