I help couples create and restore a safe and meaningful connection; young adults process trauma and life transitions; and individuals discover and create a strong sense of self and meaning. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT93346) in private practice in Valencia, CA. I have a Master’s Degree in Psychology from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and have received training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an empirically-validated and attachment-based approach to couples therapy.
Creating and maintaining a strong working relationship with clients is of the utmost importance when we begin therapy. Therapy is a collaborative process, and the relationship between client and therapist truly anchors and guides treatment. My goal as a therapist is to create a space and relationship with clients through which healing and growth can occur.
My approach to therapy is informed primarily by Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy interventions.
