I graduated from California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, with a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy. As a private practitioner I work with a variety of mental health issues, including; anxiety, major depression, bipolar disorder, gender identity concerns, marital problems and mood disorders. I am also a certified AOD Counselor (Alcohol & Other Drug) and I have expertise in working with men, women and adolescents with addiction issues; whether the addiction is to street drugs, prescription drugs, alcohol or to the internet. My theoretical orientation is interactive Cognitive Behavioral and Solution focused therapy, but I am also very comfortable using a more psychodynamic approach. I want to support my clients as they develop their own 'tool-bag' of coping skills to empower themselves to manage their lives and to improve their overall functioning. During a therapy session, I provide support, encouragement and practical feedback to help my clients. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. I have had a lot of experience with a variety of mental health issues and feel very appreciative of all the training sites that I interned at.
