About

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I am excited to help you achieve your full potential and enhance your quality of life. I work from a strength-based and culturally-sensitive perspective to provide non-judgmental support, compassion, and empathy. Using a collaborative approach and creating an individualized treatment plan, the therapeutic alliance is strengthened and allows you to feel safe, comfortable, and trusting of the treatment process. I am passionate about working together to help you stabilize mental health, improve personal wellness, increase self-esteem, gain insights, learn new coping skills, explore thoughts and feelings, build resiliency, and develop spiritually.

 

I specialize in treating individuals, children, teens, and families who struggle with depression, anxiety, mood dysregulation, personality disorders, trauma and abuse, chemical dependency, disordered eating and distorted body image, toxic shame, communication difficulties, behavioral issues, adjustment transitions, and stress management. I utilize various modalities and evidence based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Structural Family Therapy, play and art therapy, and hypnosis.

 

I earned my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have been practicing for the past 8 years and have extensive experience working in outpatient community counseling centers with children, adolescents, and adults. I have been the Program Manager at a residential treatment program for teens, the Clinical Director of a substance abuse treatment facility in Los Angeles, and the Clinical Director of an eating disorder treatment program in Orange County.

 

I hope we have the opportunity to work together and I look forward to meeting you!

  • How does a therapist deal with emotional problems in a teenage child?

    Hello and thank you for your question. Dealing with emotional problems in teenagers is very common and a therapist can be extremely helpful in managing some of the problem behaviors teens display. An effective course of treatment would include weekly individual therapy sessions with your son so he can openly discuss with his therapist the mood changes he is experiencing and what he thinks might be contributing to him feeling and acting differently. In this safe space, the therapist will work to build a trusting relationship with your son by being compassionate, empathic, and working collaboratively so he will feel free to express his concerns. Teens typically discuss things like social pressures they face, physical changes in their body, relationship difficulties, wanting independence from their parents or family members, and academic challenges, which can all combine to feel like an emotional roller coaster at times and contributes to the acting out behaviors you mentioned such as erratic and unpredictable behavior. As a therapist, I would also want to assess your son for anxiety or depressive symptoms, help him gain insight into the factors contributing to his emotions fluctuating, do some problem-solving and skills training for any immediate issues to help him learn tools to navigate his life more effectively, and address his impulsivity to help keep him safe and to refrain from engaging in high-risk behaviors. I hope this information has been helpful! READ MORE
