I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist offering supportive, strength-based therapy to adults and families. I believe that my clients have an innate potential for growth and with guidance and support they can persevere through difficult times. I believe in empathy, compassion and collaboration in order for real change to happen. Therapy can help us develop the appropriate skills to cope with challenges of life. I can help you develop coping skills and make the changes you need to live a more fulfilling and productive life. If you are struggling or if you would like to make positive changes in your life, call me and we can develop a treatment plan that will help you.

I have a B.A. in Psychology from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia and an M.A. in Counseling with Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Webster University in Irvine, California. Throughout my carrier, I have worked with clients with a variety of issues and from all socio-economic, cultural and religious backgrounds. My experience in College Hospital, a mental health facility, trained me to understand how different mental health issues can be compounded by trauma and substance abuse, as well as preparing me for dealing with clients with variety of mental health problems. I have extensive experience with children, adolescents and adults who had experienced different traumas. Among my areas of experience are anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, women's issues, adolescents' issues and family problems. I utilize many different treatment modalities and treatment techniques depending on the client's needs.
