I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Project Director with over 10 years experience working in the Mental Health Care industry in various roles. I have worked in nonprofit and for-profit companies which has given me the experience to work with people from diverse backgrounds including social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders, sexual orientations, traumatic experiences, severity of symptoms, and functional impairments. I hold a license in Clinical Social Work through the Board of Behavioral Sciences and received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Southern California (USC). I have completed the NARM therapist training and specialize in NARM.
Whether I am in a management or a psychotherapy role, I am most passionate about empowering individuals in reconnecting back to themselves so they can feel more alive, less stress, and achieve their goals. I believe the COVID-19 Pandemic has forced many of us to look at how we live our lives and to figure out what is most important to us. While we might have figured this out, some of us still feel held back in some way in getting what we want most. Through therapy, I want to work with individuals to figure out what is getting in the way of what they want most and use a supportive model to heal the barriers.
Over the last several years, I have been working in mental health programs working in dual roles as a psychotherapist and manager, fine tuning my expertise. These unique experiences have given me skills in program implementation and operations, dual diagnosis treatment, delivery of evidence based practice, leadership, and public speaking. My management experience supports my belief that mental health care should be de-stigmatizing, held to higher standards, and treated like any other ailment. My therapy experience has given me inspiration and motivation; people can heal and thrive. I carry these standards into my own practice and everyday life as a mom, wife, and friend.
