Meaningful, healthy connection is the yin to the yang that is the internal self. Research supports that when we do not receive secure experiences around intimacy we develop a higher risk for developing psychopathology and physical disorders. My approach to therapy entails utilizing the Interpersonal Process by providing a collaborative partnership and a secure space that will allow you to explore, understand, and work through the underlying core conflicts that contribute to disconnect, avoidance, self-sabotage, anger, unhealthy coping strategies, anxiety, and depression. I have over 5 years of experience helping individuals, couples, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds with a variety of needs and concerns. I value the principle of client response specificity and work to mold therapy around your unique self and needs. Every individual is different and must do this work at their own pace and time. It is my goal to join, support, and contribute to your process of growth and wellness in evidence-based ways that empower your autonomy and sense of self. I have experience in the following areas: Life transitions, Identity development, Complex and attachment trauma, Child and adolescent development, Shame and self-compassion, Communication and conflict resolution, Grief and loss, Anxiety, and Depression. In 2014, I graduated from the California State University at San Bernardino with my Master’s in Clinical/Counseling Psychology. Since graduating, I have focused on developing into a dynamic and resourceful clinician. I will utilize any and all research supported techniques and strategies in helping you to reach your goals. I am an AMFT under the supervision of Christina Olivera, LMFT.
