I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist using diverse modalities to help you reach your therapeutic goals in a hopeful, non-judgmental environment.

Helping clients realize their desired life changes is one of the most gratifying parts of my job as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Empowering people to live their best lives is my goal, whether my clients (an individual, a couple, or a family) are wanting to heal from pain, gain hope, or achieve something they perceive as out of reach. I approach everyone with compassion and understanding, without judgement. I am honored to be the person who gets to take this journey with others, and I look forward to taking it with you.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice in Northridge, California. I work with individuals, children, adolescents, couples, and families. I have a certification in Anger Management. I am also a certified School Counselor and a counselor in Child Welfare and Attendance. Contact me today to learn more and schedule a session.
