“All it takes is a little bit of adulting to realize that right about when we think we have it all together, life throws us a curveball. These instances can leave us feeling stuck – stuck in unhealthy patterns and behaviors, in feelings of anxiety or depression, and even in relational conflicts that seem impossible. For some, it’s balancing the demands of parenthood or a job situation that feels like it’s heading toward burnout. For others, it might be relationships that seem to lack boundaries and healthy expectations. However, here’s a glimmer of hope…you have the ability to move beyond “just surviving” and toward a place where you can truly thrive.“
Therapy is a place without judgment, where you can feel seen and known…which is also what can make it seem just a little scary. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe space where you can feel open to work through challenges, nurture your strengths, and develop new patterns. You can feel better, and you don’t have to get there on your own.
I received my bachelor’s degree in English with my teaching credential from California State University, Northridge. After ten years as a high school teacher (and my own internal struggles with what my life was “supposed” to look like), I pivoted and earned a master’s degree in Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy from University of Phoenix. I am currently an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT 122259) working under the supervision of Jennifer Flores (LMFT 92351).
When I am not practicing therapy, you can find me attempting to practice yoga (keyword: attempting), trying to get my kids to eat something other than chicken nuggets, or re-watching episodes of The Sopranos.
I would be honored to partner with you on this journey.
