I am an experienced psychotherapist who is dedicated to helping adults cope with trauma, anxiety, depression, and other issues.

I wanted to thank-you for choosing me to provide for your counseling/therapeutic needs and goals. I appreciate and acknowledge the courage it takes to want to make a change, and I am delighted, honored and privileged to be working with you through this journey. I graduated from California State University-Dominguez Hills with a BA in Behavioral Science and a minor in psychology (2005) and a Master of Science in Marital and Family Therapy (2007). Go TOROS!

My expertise includes treatment of trauma, and mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, substance abuse, codependency, parental support, deep work with those who have experienced early loss, neglect, or trauma, relationship issues, gender/identity/cultural issues, adjustment and transitional period, to name a few. I believe the relationship between therapist and client is one of the most important factors in healing. I strive to provide a safe and welcoming environment in which to explore your specific personal needs. I see therapy as a collaboration, together we can set the stage for self discovery, personal growth, increased aliveness and an increased capacity to reach your goals. I believe that treatment can jumpstart you into healing and recovery from trauma.

My approach is individualistic and I use a wide range of evidence-based practices and interventions depending on where the client is on his/her journey. One of my highest values in working with someone is my respect of their own process. I see my role as one that offers support and when a client is ready, I enjoy guiding him/her to understand, identify, express, and release feelings in order to stop unhealthy patterns in the present. I am passionate about helping clients grow emotionally. I honor and respect all belief systems and will do all that we can to make you feel welcomed. I provide the safety and nurture necessary to explore painful life experiences that may continue to hinder individuals from living a fulfilled life.
