I understand how overwhelming life transitions can feel. Whether these challenges are related to going through a particular developmental phase, relationships, divorce, school, employment, child raring or they are simply situational barriers caused by outside stressors, they can cause feelings of self doubt, isolation, pain, anxiety and depression. Finding the "right" partner in therapy process can help in navigating and solving some of these challenges through goal-oriented, intentional and honest work. In my process, I tend to use genuine inquiry, direct,
yet caring approach, which is rooted in strong theoretical research and carefully crafted through the years of clinical practice.

I am an experienced, bi-lingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, practicing in the mental health field since 1996. In addition to working with children, adolescents, adults, and couples in private practice, over the years, I have shared my expertise and provided clinical training and supervision to many clinicians, both in community mental health and private practice. While working closely with the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health, I have had opportunities to be trained and certified in several cutting edge Evidenced Based Practices, including TFCBT (Trauma-Focused CBT), CPP (Child-Parent Psychotherapy), Seeking Safety, PPP (Positive Parenting Program), DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy), and MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction). I am trained in Motivational Interviewing and work with patients with Dual diagnoses and Eating Disorders. In addition, I have several specialties including working with ASD populations, Developmental Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD.
