Background and Education 

I'm are going through some pretty intense issues....really intense. Are you legit? 

Trust me when I say, I've pretty much seen it all. Nothing shocks me anymore to be honest. My heart holds no space for judgement. And if I feel something is out of my scope of practice, I can refer you to someone that can help! 

Background & Education

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from California State University, Long Beach. From there I went into the field of behavioral therapy. I spent 7+ years working directly with children with Autism and their families as a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst. This just means that the board recognizes that I am skilled and specialized in working with this population. 

 

Working with children that have Autism Spectrum Disorder was an amazing experience but in my work, it was the families I saw suffer. I wanted to be able to work with the whole family in a therapeutic way and marriage and family therapy allowed me to do so! That was when I started to pursue a career as a therapist.

 

 I have a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy/Counseling from Capella University and spent 2 years working as a therapist treating couples, families, children. 

In total, I have spent more than 8 years working in the mental health field and have a wealth of knowledge to share!
