Introducing My Practice


Hello and welcome to my website. I have over 10 years of experience as a Marriage and Family Therapist, specializing in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) which I received training and certification at the University of California, San Diego. In addition, I use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems, Solution Focused, and Person-Centered Therapies along with other modalities. Over the years, I have found my niche working with children, teens and their families. I utilize a collaborative approach to strengthen the family relationship and support families experiencing conflict.

My therapeutic approach is to provide a safe and compassionate environment to assist in opening doors where challenges exist. Nowadays, it’s not easy dealing with life’s daily struggles. I assist individuals and families with overcoming day to day conflict and emotions by combining strategies and meditative approaches. My focus is on techniques dependent upon the specific needs and experiences of the individual and/or family in order to establish healthy thought patterns.

The ultimate goal in any therapy is to bring back balance for a happy and more fulfilled life. I look forward to speaking with you soon to assist you with new approaches to your life experiences that enhance the outcomes you and your family deserve.

Our life is shaped by our mind, for we become what we think” Buddha
