I believe EVERY person deserves a happy and productive life. My goal is to help you discover what you are capable of and how you can feel happy in the life you have.
Regardless of your race, gender, sexuality, or ability, you can discover how to live in a world that may not seem like it’s on your side.
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in Encino and Temecula, California. I specialize in counseling for children, adolescents, and adults. I have more then 10 years experience providing therapy to people like you who are looking to change the way they feel about their life.
My life experiences that began on the East Coast have helped my become the therapist I am today. I was raised in a multi cultural family that changed suddenly when my father passed away at a young age. The family I knew until the age of ten then became blended with my stepfather’s family. Through trails and tribulations I found myself wanting to help others find their own happiness and love my career.
After ending my career in film and television, I began working with children with autism at The Help Group. While there, I found my passion for working with others in challenging situations. Since graduating from Antioch University LA, gained a wide range of experience working with;
- at-risk youth
- foster children and teens
- homeless families
- special needs families
- Individuals and Couples of a variety of backgrounds and sexual orientations
My training is a collection of academics and life experience. Along the way I have manage to become lucky enough to find a family of my own. I am a wife, step mother to a teenager, and mother of two little boys that have some special needs. I attempt to learn as much from my clients as I hope they learn from me. My greatest lesson comes from the understanding that you never know what can happen, but you can learn how to respond to the ups and downs.
I work with children, adolescents, and adults; individually or as a family. Although I have my areas of expertise, I love to work with people from all backgrounds. With compassion and understanding, I will work with you to help you build on your strengths and find your bliss. My goal is to help you feel empowered to handle life challenges.
