Meeting You Where You Are
Taking the first step towards your journey of healing can be a difficult decision to make. Opening the path to what has brought us deep suffering can be scary and at the same time, exactly what we need in order to begin to build a life grounded on what is important to us. It is easy to lose sight of these things when we spend our time trying our hardest to get rid of or avoid our pain. My hope is that I am able to guide you on this journey to find a clearer path. The foundation of my practice is grounded on using EBPs (evidence-based interventions) and compassion.
For the past 10 years my passion has been to work in a community mental health setting.I currently work full-time at Harbor UCLA Medical Center, Adult Outpatient Clinic where I have been intensely trained in various treatment modalities. I have worked as an emergency crisis responder for the County of Los Angeles and also teach at California State University Dominguez Hills. I am certified in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and certified as a prolonged exposure (PE) therapist for the treatment of PTSD with the Center for Treatment and Study of Anxiety.
I am currently accepting new clients in both English and Spanish. I offer a free 15 Minute phone consultation. You can click on "request an appointment" or send me a secure message. At this time, I am conducting all sessions via tele-health.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by. I welcome the opportunity to help you along your path.
