Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.

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.
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.
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.
