As your therapist I will help you understand the emotions that you may be dealing with, whether it be loneliness, pain, anger, happiness, fear, or if you are just unsure of your next move. I will work to build a trusting relationship that allows you to begin to reveal more of who you are, what you experience, and what you want. I work to help support the development of greater self-awareness and a clear, healthy, internal sense of what is best for you. I am also pro-active in pointing out perceptions and behaviors that may be contributing to your issues and sabotaging your success. I will challenge you to try new things within the session and well as in your day-to-day life between appointments.
I trained at McKinley Children’s Center where I provided therapy to children and adolescents who had mental disorders. I also provided therapy to the families of children and adolescents as they worked to adjust to life’s changes. I graduated from the University of La Verne with my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a member of CAMFT (California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists). I am registered with the Board of Behavioral Services as a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (IMF # 81433), supervised under Dr. Wendy Ludecke Bencosme (MFC# 38430).
