As an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist with specialized training in Art Therapy, my goal is to help people navigate uncertainty. I love celebrating the uniqueness of each person, and hope to create a welcoming space for people to express themselves freely and grow. Art has always been a passion of mine. From photography to watercolor, and everything in between, I love experimenting with new mediums, and believe that everyone has the power to express themselves through art. In addition to creating art, I love hiking, biking, being a cat mom, and practicing yoga to help keep me grounded. I am always curious to learn more about the world.
During my time as a graduate student at Loyola Marymount University, my dedication to the art process grew as I helped clients approach life with new insights. I was honored to work with children and adolescents in a school-based setting, and adults with memory loss at an adult day care center. These experiences influenced my culturally humble and humanistic perspective, in which I value my clients as the experts in their own life. My therapeutic approach is an eclectic blend of cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness based practices.
Currently, I also work at a residential treatment center for adolescents where I facilitate groups on self-esteem, body image, emotional eating, interpersonal communication, violence prevention and trauma, distress tolerance, and emotional regulation.
My sessions are tailored to each client’s specific needs. I love finding what works on an individual level for each person to achieve their goals, and believe in noticing the steps of progress (great and small) throughout the journey. My fees are $120/45 minute session.
