I am an experienced Marriage and Family therapist specializing in anxiety, depression, alcoholism/addiction, and parents with neurodivergent children. I offer virtual counseling services anywhere in the state of California.

More About Me:
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 10 years of experience, I offer a blended, yet present-focused approach to healing and well-being. I am a Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider and have been professionally trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I have extensive experience in working with anxiety and depression in adults. I also specialize in working with parents of neurodiverse children.

My Philosophy:
The world may be a chaotic place, but it doesn't have to be. Counseling is a way for you to become your best self and to find answers inside of you. My job is to walk alongside you, ensuring you maximize your potential.

When we get "stuck" in life, we can begin to feel lost and confused. My goal is to help you figure out what is making you feel "stuck," and collaboratively help you to make the necessary adjustments in your life to get "unstuck." Together, we will walk the path toward your new future. My approach is client-centered and collaborative. I utilize various treatment modalities in my practice, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

I believe that the therapeutic relationship and rapport building are vital in helping clients get the most out of their counseling experience. My role is to help support my clients in creating attainable goals that they can succeed in accomplishing.

Education:
I grew up in Ventura County, CA and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Chapman University. I received my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from California Lutheran University.

The Name:
Cambridge Dictionary defines “reframe” as a way “to change the way something is expressed or considered.” Simply speaking, a reframe is a different way to look at a situation. The goal of CBT, and my work with my clients, is to challenge oneself to identify negative core beliefs, or negative thought patterns, and begin to learn tools and coping skills in order to look at them in a new, more positive light. The name of my practice, Reframe Counseling, describes the process of reworking one’s negative thought into a more healing and positive frame of mind.

I am happy to provide a free, 15-minute phone consultation to discuss your concerns and see how I can best help you reach your goals. Please visit my website at www.reframecounseling.solutions for more information.
