M.A. Clinical Psychology
In this high-speed culture we live in today, life can often feel so busy or distracting that we forget to embrace the present moment. As we are each on our unique journey, navigating relationships and daily transitions I believe it is important to still feel grounded, connected, known and understood. I am curious to listen and understand each person by creating a containing space so you can feel safe to express your authentic self.
I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with my Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am also certified as a Fitness and Nutrition Coach by the National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association. I am passionate about holistic health and appreciate therapy for its diverse process to encounter corrective emotional experiences, gain greater trust, grounding practices, and self-awareness. I am interested in exploring spirituality and a self-care lifestyle that inspires opportunities for growth and well-being. In summary, I prioritize and advocate having a healthy life balance that contributes to positive mental health.
I’ve spent most of my Traineeship and Associate work navigating concerns related to stress, anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, self-esteem, career guidance, and other health related conditions such as Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). I am a person-centered therapist, often including Attachment theory and Cognitive-Behavioral approaches. Additionally, I incorporate mindfulness and muscle relaxation techniques as interventions to reconnect my patients with the mind-body connection in the present moment.
