I am a California State Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT, MFC101500). I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, and am in pursuit of my Doctorate (PhD) in ClinicalPsychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology and with a strong interest in the successful treatment symptoms of trauma such as Infidelity, substance abuse and other ways in which we cope with life stressors or feelings of inadequacy.
Lies we tell ourSelves like accepting a false Self narrative or a clinical diagnosis as an identify perpetuates a Self- loathing narrative in need of up rooting! In my private practice, I successfully treat Adults, Couples,
Youth & Families by helping them unearth, develop and implement the more accurate perception of themSelves. The adult Self demanded in order to find, experience and tolerate personal and professional success.
I am myopic in guiding people who are willing to accept, tolerate and consider themselves first and then others. This becomes the new Self narrative as together we navigate through the painful internal struggles, dissatisfying interpersonal relationships and historical traumas accepted by the mind that protected but no
Leaving us vulnerable to consider criticism and accept praise as guides toward Self-Satisfying Self Actualization. I also make sure to provide practical feedback which allows patients to experience what it's truly like for others to be in relationship with them. They are paying for my time not my feelings, so while you’ll get the truth, it will never be without authentic empathy and the utmost respect. I can be the last
therapist you see.
