My guiding principle in therapy is to “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” Our life experiences can range from happiness, and success to struggle, hardship and failure. What many generally see as hardship, I see as an opportunity to learn, and even thrive from a difficult experience. A difficult situation is simply the starting point towards improvement. I work towards providing guidance and tools to help achieve self-determined success. I believe that teamwork establishes the strength and support needed to reach and maintain long-lasting happiness and improve upon difficult situations. You don’t have to struggle alone.
I graduated from the California School of Professional Psychology with a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (License Number # 92600 ) with the California State Board of Behavioral Sciences. I am a member of CAMFT (California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists).
I am a bilingual therapist and speak fluent Spanish. I have extensive training that has allowed me to develop an array of therapeutic skills. My early-childhood-focused training (The Incredible Years) and my patient nature have allowed me to effectively teach social and emotional skills to young children. Further, my couples training (Gottman Method) has vested me with the tools to improve a couple’s dynamic through the maintenance of boundaries and perspective, and improving communication.
I have training in levels I-IV of Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT), which is geared towards facilitating fast relief of emotional distress associated with traumatic events. ETT is a new brain-based intervention using light/color that can dramatically alleviate unresolved emotions around personal conflicts in a gentle and meaningful way. I have Basic Certification as an ETT therapist. For more information, visitwww.ettia.org.
