Associate Marriage & Family Therapist
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist who has experience with children, teens, young adults, and families. I come from a background of research beginning as an undergraduate student at UCLA, and subsequent years following graduation while pursuing my Master’s at Pepperdine University.
I have specialized experience working with children, teens, and young adults with ASD while facilitating clinic directives at UCLA PEERS Clinic as a research assistant and behavioral coach in addition to the multiple years I’ve worked as a behavioral technician implementing Applied Behavioral Analysis interventions.
I believe therapy is not a one size fits all - each person is unique - and deserves an individualized approach. I value creating a safe and empathetic environment for clients to feel welcomed and validated. I have a gentle yet direct approach while maintaining a supportive environment focusing on your strengths. I believe in order to foster growth and health, working together as a team is crucial; therefore I put emphasis on working collaboratively.
