What Brings Me A Sense of Ease

I enjoy spending time with my daughter, two dogs, and one cat. When you are creating happiness for others, don’t forget you. There is freedom that comes with saying no without negotiating.

Be still and know that I am God.

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist who graduated from Pepperdine University with a Master’s in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Master’s in Education. I have worked with those struggling with various mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, grief, and loss. I have also worked with the Los Angeles County Probation Department for many years and understand how families may struggle when faced with a member struggling with substance abuse, defiance, and isolation from the family unit. I work to offer a non-judgmental, safe, and nurturing space that encourages clients to open up and share their voices. Mental health is essential to how we walk through the world. However, many do not pursue therapy due to cultural barriers, lack of faith in the process, or fear of addressing the pain being carried. Please allow me to assist you as you begin this journey of recovery and relief.

I have worked with couples and specialize in developing positive communication and promoting the ability to see situations through your partner’s eyes. This will allow an understanding as to why your partner operates as they do. Commitment to the relationship and each other is sometimes lost as couples deal with life’s stressors, children, work, extended families, etc. However, healing is possible, and I work with couples to strengthen the foundation and discover the issues that contribute to a relationship’s alienation, disappointment, and loneliness. These are areas we want to build bridges to understanding and compassion. It is possible to improve a relationship if both partners are willing to dedicate themselves to working together to create a solid foundation.

I work to build a healthy connection which is often affected by the relationship examples we receive from our families of origin and our past relationships. Together, we can examine destructive habits that are interfering with rewarding relationships. Let’s work to build on strengths and increase intimacy.

As the parent of an adult with Autism and a fifteen-year-old with ADHD, I have real-life experience with Neurodiverse individuals. This experience has allowed me to develop an understanding of both those who are Neurodiverse and family, partners, and friends who must develop skills that encourage communication, connection and an appreciation of the many different ways people may look at the world. There are many different lenses through which the world can be observed; different isn’t wrong, just different. There is strength and resilience in all of us, and those who are Neurodiverse often need assistance with recognizing and developing the skills. Families, partners, and friends also need skills to understand better how a Neurodiverse individual may understand or need to be given information to build understanding.

I am passionate about working with individuals and families experiencing difficulty becoming pregnant, birth trauma, pregnancy loss, and a child’s death. I have personal experience in this area, and I am aware of the guilt and shame often experienced by individuals when pregnancy doesn’t occur as expected. I became a mother after the premature birth of my son at 26 weeks, adoption, and foster care after experiencing miscarriages. My son is now an adult with Autism. I was unprepared for his birth and recovery, which forever changed my life and parenting. Therefore, I understand getting pregnant, completing a pregnancy, and parenting is difficult for everyone involved. I welcome couples and individuals to this safe space to share their stories without fear of judgment as feelings of guilt, loss, and shame are expressed. Unfortunately, this is an area where shame is often so great infertility may never be shared with others in your support system.

Infertility subjects relationships to stress and disappointment as couples navigate treatment, uncertainty, and often unexpected feelings toward successful pregnancy and childbirth. I have the skills, education, and personal knowledge to support clients who experience pregnancy loss, stillbirth, miscarriage, pregnancy, and birth trauma. I am here to listen and assist as the trauma and anxiety of infertility issues are navigated. Couples must communicate openly and honestly with each other as they move toward their goal. I use the word goal because the dream often changes as the journey is navigated. 

I also work with clients experiencing the effects of childhood and relationship trauma.  We often do not realize the long-term effects of ” old ” traumas on our lives and hearts.  Trauma affects us mentally and physically; most people do not realize trauma changes our brains.  Clients need a safe and nonjudgemental place to move through these hurts and begin to heal effectively.  I welcome you into my space to begin this journey together.

I welcome you to start with a free 15-minute consultation to see if we are a good fit.  If we are not, perhaps I can recommend another member of our team.  Take this first step and begin this journey.
